Date Modified Field

A simple extension of the built-in date field that will record the time an entry is saved.


  1. Upload /datemodified to your Symphony /extensions folder.

  2. Enable it by selecting the "Field: Date Modified", choose Enable from the with-selected menu, then click Apply. You can now add the "Date Modified" field to your sections.


When you add the field to a section, the only available option is a checkbox to indicate whether or not the field should be manually editable:

  • Unchecked (default): the field will not be displayed in the entry publishing screen and the value of the field will be automatically set when the entry is saved.

  • Checked: the field will appear (pre-populated with the current timestamp as of page load) and its value will be used when the entry is saved.
