Ability to remove user-facing asset timestamp after a period of time

Eric R 2 years ago in BLOX CMS updated 2 years ago 2

We'd like to see the ability to optionally set a time for each block that would prevent the asset timestamp from being shown to the public. In other words, we may wish to suppress the timestamp on home page articles once they are older than 4 hours. It may look better to have *no* timestamp than a timestamp that clearly states to the public that we've not made any material changes to the article in x number of hours.

Ideally, this would be an option that could be set individually on each display block.



This would be a fairly easy feature to add to a block if you wanted a custom version of one. Or it could be done globally via javascript for the full page.

If you wanted to pursue that for your site, just reach out to our CS team.

Thanks Joe.,

We actually cobbled together some code for the block to use CSS to hide the datestamp after x hours.

Hopefully this could be incorporated into the native block code in the future.
