Image date

On this page:

Syntax

<txp:image_date />

The image_date tag is a single tag that Textpattern will replace with the uploaded date of the current (or given) image. Should usually be used in an @@image form@@, although it may be used on its own providing you specify an id or name.

Attributes

Tag will accept the following attributes (case-sensitive):

id="integer"
An id assigned at upload of an image to display. The IDs can be found on the Images panel.
Default: unset.
format="format string"
Override the default date format set in the Preferences panel.
Values: any valid strftime string values, since, iso8601 (ISO 8601 reference), w3cdtf (W3CDTF reference), or rfc822 (RFC 822 reference).
Default: the ‘Archive date format’ set in preferences.
name="image name"
An image to display, given by its image name as shown on the Images panel. If both name and id are specified, the id takes precedence.
Default: unset.
