This was a simpe change in /language/en/common.php by adding a style element to Yesterday/Today/Tomorrow, and the hours and minutes :
This also works more or less in 3.2.1 but is broken due to the new feature of having the quote include the datetime of the quoted post, and there the style element is shown as text.'datetime' => array(
'TODAY' => '<strong style="color:#FF0000;">Today</strong>',
So I've been struggling for a month now trying to figure out how to achieve the wanted effect, initially using custom coding and once it's finalised hoping to make it an extension. (BTW that month wasn't solely dedicated to this item )
The most simple way (I thought) would be to remove the datetime part in quotes. I managed to get that to work it's not a very nice way, requiring edits in too many files, also implying loss of the new feature and possibly complications if the quoting systems changes with updates.
My current view is that this should be achieved using css and only in the lastpost column (and preferably also a change in colour in the icon for subforums).
Basically this should only be visible on index.php and on viewforum.php. (I wouldn't mind viewtopic also but that's probably superfluous since the unread topics are already easily identifiable). However, it may be easier to achieve the desired effect by making this a global feature on the forum. Something in the line of <Indentify date as YESTERDAY, or TODAY, or MINUTES/HOURS AGO> and use a different css identifier based on the outcome.This would imply that the datetime would have to be in a seperate (named) element.
Any thoughts/advice from phpBB experts (and possibly css experts)?
