How about a last modified field in the next CD?
I think the subject line says it all. Either that, or it would be nice to have a setting for an article that automatically updates the "filed date" field, if the article is modified (probably suboptimal).
If this should be altered at all, the best solution would be a "last modified field". It would not always be convenient to have the "Filed date" field updated automatically. If you are just correcting a typo, you might not want the file to show up in some "New files" list.
Yeah, the first solution is definitely the best. I would still ike to see it done, since I think it is a valuable bit of information for the reader.
I do agree on that a last modified field could be useful. As for changing the filed date, some times you want to update a file as changed but still show when it was originally uploaded.
I agree with the enhancement request.
I second that emotion.
I vote for an extra field 'last modified'. I would really like to show a last modified date because our texts evolve constantly.
I'll go you one better: How about a string of all modification dates, the first would be the "publishdate" the last would be "lastmodifydate" and the whole thing would be "allmodifydates." I guess the dates would have to be date/time.
I've wanted this for a while.
