Template:Date

From LGPedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This template converts a YearMonthDay timestamp into the standard LGPedia date string.

Usage

{{Date}}

This adds today.

{{Date|TIMESTAMP}}

By manually adding a timestamp, you can pre- or post-date videos.

Date formatting

Dates have to be formatted year, month, date; zero-padded, no punctuation. If you did it right, you should have a total of eight digits. Christmas Eve 2007 would be formatted as 20071224, for example.

For comparison and understanding:

Today is Tuesday, May 22, 2018.
In digits, this would either be 05/22/2018 (US) or 22/05/2018 (majority of the world).
Formatted correctly for the template, it would be 20180522.
