<txp:image_date /> single tag, 3 attributes


The image_date tag is a single tag that Textpattern will replace with the uploaded date of the current (or given) image. Should usually be used in an image form, although it may be used on its own providing you specify an id or name.


id="unset" (integer) 
  • An id assigned at upload of an image to display. The IDs can be found on the Images tab.
  • An image to display, given by its image name as shown on the Images tab. If both name and id are specified, the id takes precedence.
format="format string" 
  • Adjust the display of the date, overriding Archive date format set in Basic Preferences.
  • Values: any valid strftime() string values.
