Table of Contents


Provides the creation and modification date of the CPs.


The respective call looks like this, depending on the release of the script. (Example: “CPDATE_CREATEDX”):

  • {CPDATE_CREATEDX} (Simple fast version, with output format settings in the script)
  • {CPDATE_CREATEDX} (Simple Version, with output format and language settings in the script)
  • {CPDATE_CREATEDX:Y-m-d H:i:s} or {CPDATE_CREATEDX:l, d.m.Y H:i lang=DE} Comfortable but slowest version with all parameters in the TAG

In the script is determined by off/uncomment the numbered script blocks, which method is applied. Only the used procedures should be active to avoid loss of speed when rendering. The script will be addressed individually for each CP!

Possible combinations of the individual script blocks: 1) only, 2) only, 3) only, 1) and 3), 2) and 3)

Additionally you can determine which Content part Types will be searched for TAGs. By commenting the introducing IF-Statement with it's closing bracket all CPs will be searched. (speed!!)
