Purpose of the Mod

To allow administrators to review the most recently-created Places, this mod installs a setup program that adds a Creation Date field (called 'datecreated') field to the Places table, and modifies admin_places.php (the Admin >> Places >> Search program) to search for places created after a given date, and to display the creation date.

Before you can use the new 'datecreated' field, you must run the setup program, which is accessible through the expanded status cell in the Mod Manager mod list. The setup program creates the new database field, and populates all Places records with a date of "1 Jan 2000" so that they do not accidentally pick up a current date when they are edited. }}

Compatibility with other Mods

This mod is compatible with Admin Places Search, Admin Places Geocode, Places Subject to Deletion, TreeID-One Column, Google Maps - More Place Levels Mod and Google maps 15. It is not compatible with Tree ID Mod, but TreeID-One Column accomplishes the same purpose as Tree ID Mod. TreeID-One Column just uses one column instead of two to display the Tree ID and Tree Name, and avoids a couple of mod conflicts.
