Antville Macros

<% site.age %>

This macro calculates the number of days that have passed by since a weblog was created (it doesn't matter how long the weblog has been offline).

story.age

would be great to have a macro that does the same for stories. I'd like to put "posted x days ago" in the site.history display.

I found a solution here and modified it slightly for usage with Antville.

Add to the skin 'Javascript':


function dateDiff(createdate) {
datethen = new Date();
datenow = new Date();
diff = new Date();
datethentemp = new Date(String(createdate));
datethen.setTime(datethentemp.getTime());
datenowtemp = new Date(String("<% now format='MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss'%>"));
datenow.setTime(datenowtemp.getTime());
diff.setTime(Math.abs(datethen.getTime() - datenow.getTime()));
timediff = diff.getTime();
weeks = Math.floor(timediff / (1000 60 60 24 7));
timediff -= weeks (1000 60 60 24 7);
days = Math.floor(timediff / (1000
60 60 24));
timediff -= days (1000 60 60 24);
hours = Math.floor(timediff / (1000 60 60));
timediff -= hours (1000 60 60);
mins = Math.floor(timediff / (1000
60));
timediff -= mins (1000 60);
secs = Math.floor(timediff / 1000);
timediff -= secs * 1000;
document.write("Posted " + weeks + " weeks, " + days + " days, " + hours + " hours, " + mins + " minutes, and " + secs + " seconds ago");
}

-or- for a less complicated output:


function dateDiff(createdate) {
datethen = new Date();
datenow = new Date();
diff = new Date();
datethentemp = new Date(String(createdate));
datethen.setTime(datethentemp.getTime());
datenowtemp = new Date(String("<% now format='MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss'%>"));
datenow.setTime(datenowtemp.getTime());
diff.setTime(Math.abs(datethen.getTime() - datenow.getTime()));
timediff = diff.getTime();
weeks = Math.floor(timediff / (1000 60 60 24 7));
timediff -= weeks (1000 60 60 24 7);
days = Math.floor(timediff / (1000
60 60 24));
days = weeks * 7 + days;
document.write("Posted " + days + " days ago");
}

Then replace the story.createtime-Macro in the skin 'recently modified item' (or 'Story display') by this code:

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
dateDiff("<% story.createtime format='MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss'%>");
// -->
</script>

Voila.
