Title: {modified_date_value} Do not show anything
Post by: belini on 10.11.2017 13:33:35
I use jDownloads version 3.2.56 and in the file details the placeholder {modified_date_value} does not show the modification date.
I checked the "#_jdownloads_files" table in the database and confirmed that the "modified_date" field is not blank and actually has the modification date.

So, it seems to me, is that actually the placeholder {modified_date_value} has a problem or is out of use in jDownloads.

Anyway I'm using the placeholder {file_date} that already helps me.

I just created this post to notify you that this is happening and would like to know why.

Hi
Did you mark the Download as modified?

@Colin:
I think you mean the possibility to mark a Download as 'Updated'. But this has nothing to do with this placeholder. So it could be a bug.

Hi
I have just checked this out OK.  But you need to actually set the modified date in the Modified Date field.
That is jD does not change the modified date just because you uploaded a new version of the file, or because say you changed the description.  It is left to the person 'editing' the Download to decide if it is really an update. And if the do then one action is to enter the modified date, another action is mark as 'Updated'.  These actions are not linked.

PS there might be a case for automatically changing the contents of the Modified Date field when the downloadable file is itself 'changed'.

I like it.
Is there a way to fix it?
