I was using dreamweaver to edit my webpages which uses it’s own auto update on save date code<!– #BeginDateformat:Am1 –>May 5, 2005<!– #EndDate –> (Dreamweaver’s Auto-Update-on-Save Date Code). When I switched to bluefish as my main editor the auto update code wouldn’t work. So I looked around and found a php code to get the same thing done. Just place it anywhere you want the date to appear
<?php echo date(‘F j, Y’, filemtime(__FILE__));?>
If you want to store it to a variable you can do
$variable_date = date(‘F j, Y’, filemtime(__FILE__));
You can exchange filemtime with filectime if you want to display the date the file was created.
