Adding Automatic Dates
Dreamweaver can insert the current date and time in a variety of formats into your Web page. You can choose whether or not to add the day of the week.
To insert the current date:
- Click in your page to place the insertion point where you want the date to appear.
Choose Insert > Date.
The Insert Date dialog appears (Figure 4.30).
Figure 4.30 Dreamweaver lets you insert dates into your pages in a variety of formats.
Do one or more of the following:
- If you want the name of the day to appear, use the Day format pop-up menu to set the appearance of the day of the week.
- Make a selection from the Date format list.
- If you want the time to appear, choose the 12-hour or 24-hour format from the Time format list.
- Select Update automatically on save, if you want that to happen. This is very useful if you want visitors to your site to know when the page was last updated.
Dreamweaver inserts the date (and any additional items you chose) into your page.
