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.
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.
- My Admin Places Search mod coordinates with this mod in that the field buttons defined for the new creation date search field are activated only after Admin Places Search is installed - along with Field Buttons.
- This mod uses the Field Buttons mod to attach small 'field buttons' to several text fields, but it is not dependent on Field Buttons. Field buttons are configurable (and generally one-character) buttons that are attached to HTML form fields, and that reduce the typing or mouse movements needed to perform several common editing tasks. This mod is not compatible with Field Buttons mod versions earlier than version 3.
This mod has two mod subfolders:
- admin_places_date_v184.108.40.206b - The subfolder that you expect to exist for any mod that installs files. It contains
- rrplacesdate_dbsetup.php - A one-time setup program that creates the database field in which a place's creation date is stored.
- The shared folder RR-shared_mod_includes_v220.127.116.11, which contains files that support mod option management in many of my mods. The files installed from that shared folder are:
- rrshared_innermodmenu4.php - Inner Mod Menus
- img/rrshared_wikilogo.gif - An icon that links to a mod's TNG Wiki page from an Inner Mod Menu or Mod Settings Block
The shared folder is packaged with several mods, each of which may install some or all of its files. Once a file from this folder has been installed (by any mod), that file will not be overwritten or removed by the subsequent installation or un-installation of any mod (including this one), nor will its presence generate any Mod Manager errors.
If you unzip mod distribution files directly into your mods folder, then the presence of this second subfolder and the installation of its files should be invisible to you. But if you generally copy mod subfolders to your mods folder, you need to make sure to copy the folder RR-shared_mod_includes_v18.104.22.168 (well, unless you are confident that it is already in your mods folder because it was part of another mod).
