** db8 Site Last Modified for Joomla 3.x (native) **

The Site Last Modified date and time are based on the creation and modification date and time of the articles in your site, and it takes into account the websites & users timezone level. It uses PHP date format to format the date/time. It has an update notification & can be updated using Joomla's one-click-update.

Latest version: db8 Social Media Share J3.x v2.6 [23-December-2014] - Added filter="raw" to mod_db8sitelastmodified.xml to make it possible to add HTML code to "Text before/after Date" fields.

** db8 Site Last Modified for Joomla 2.5 (native) **

The Site Last Modified date and time are based on the creation and modification date and time of the articles in your site, and it takes into account the websites & users timezone level.

It uses PHP strftime format. Text (and HTML code) can be added before AND after the date/time. And the Joomla 2.5 version has 3 language files on board: English, French & Dutch. It has been tested on Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 1.7.5 (It might run on 1.6 but has not been tested).

** db8 Site Last Modified for Joomla 1.5 (native) **

The Site Last Modified date and time are based on the creation and modification date and time of the articles in your site, and it takes into account the users access level and whether an article is published or not.

It uses PHP strftime date/time format (for date/time display in localized format, based on selected language). Text (and HTML code) can be added before AND after the date/time. And the Joomla 1.5 version has 5 language files on board: English, Dutch, German, French, Spanish.

** db8 Site Last Modified for Joomla 1.0 (version 1.0)**

This module displays a global "last modified" date that informs the visitor when the last change was done to the site. It displays the last modified/created date of all articles, regardless their access level and publish state.

The module has three parameters:
* Module Class Suffix (for individual module styling)
* Label (for any text, but only in front of the date)
* Date/time format ( Formats the date value according to the MySQL format, so only limited date/time localization possible )

Note: both versions do not display any other changes, e.g. in Section/Category or Modules:
* The date+time of changes in Section/Category descriptions are not stored in the Joomla tables.
* The usage of the checkedouttime of User defined Modules wasn't implemented in this module.

Simple & easy

Posted on 08 April 2016

A useful extension, though the content is in an HTML list for some reason. Also, you can't leave the end punctuation empty.

Ease of use

Simple, though I had to bang the display into shape by neutralizing the HTML list's padding and bullet.

I used this to: Showing last updated date on a product catalog site.

Easy to install, to publish, it does what I need. Thank you.

Thats all, it does what it says. Easy to install, easy to publish, easy to customize. A must have for a site that is frequently updated.

Flawless module!

This is one of those modules that is 100% kosher.

It does what it claims to do, installation is straighforward, administration is a delight. No skills needed. Fit for the royal family!

Here's a tip for newbies like myself.

If you for example want to have two lines like this:

"This site was updated:

05 augusti 2010, 15:14"

The input would be:

This site was updated:



Excellent, straightforward module that does precisely what's intended to do. Easy installation too.

Well, this is awesome - it does exactly what I was looking for, and is very configurable using the date formats I found here (just omit the ' and ' at start and end):


Shame you cannot remove completely the text before the date - seeing as any module can display the title it would be nice to have the option to *only* show the date in the module, and use the title to describe that this is the last modified date.

Thanks though for a great, and useful module.

Owner's reply: Version 2, for Joomla 1.5 native, has just been released. In that version you can completely remove the text before & after the date.

Nice and simple Module. Easy installation and Configuration. It would be great if it also show other site info (ex. Site name, web master/s, today's date, etc)

When developing websites for customers I always have to do the same things to configure and optimize the website before putting it live. The awesome Live Checklist created by Rene Kreijveld has proven to be a great tool to keep track of everything that you have to do. It's a list of things you have to do to configure and optimize your Joomla website. However, the list is an offline one that you can use next to your computer. What if such a list would be inside the website you were developing? I decided to develop this extension to have such a checklist tool within the website that is under development. Website developers can add their own checklist or Generate a default Live Checklist. db8 Site Dev v0.9.3 consists of an Admin Component and Admin Module and is available with the following language packs: - en-GB (UK English) - da-DK (Danish) - de-DE (German) - fr-FR (French) - nl-NL (Dutch).

db8 404 Errors

db8 404 Errors

Free | Admin Reports | Peter Martin
2 reviews
This Administrator Module displays a list of 404 Errors in the back-end Control Panel, so the errors are clearly visible for Webmasters right after login. The Module retrieves the lists of 404 Errors from the Redirect Manager. With the Module webmasters become better aware about incoming traffic to non-existing pages so that they can redirect those to working pages. The Module has a couple of configuration options: number, order, order direction of the 404 errors, and the Redirect Status: All, Disabled, Enabled, Archived, and Trashed. The default is to show a list of 5 Errors, Disabled (= 404 errors that have not yet been redirected), ordered by number of hits, starting with the most hits. With this default setting a webmaster will notice the non-existing page with most traffic best. Creating redirection for those will probably solve most future 404 errors. Note: In order to display 404 Errors, Joomla's Redirect Plugin should be enabled. Installation: Extensions > Extension Manager > [Install] Extensions > Module Manager > Filter [Administrator] > [New] Configure Module: under [Module] assign to Position "cpanel" & under [Advanced] set Bootstrap Size to 6. Language files included: de-DE (German) en-GB (UK English) es-ES (Spanish) fr-FR (French) nl-NL (Dutch) Change log: Version 1.1 [28 January 2015] File: mod_db8404errors-j3x-v1.1.zip Corrected language packs & added 3 new languages (French, German, Spanish) Version 1.0 [28 January 2015] File: mod_db8404errors-j3x-v1.zip First release.
