Question Date settings on the forum

Hi all. I'd like to know if we can set the date settings more accurately on here. I'm looking through an old thread of mine, and it would be really helpful if I could see the dates when the comments were posted, but all it says is '4 weeks ago'. Any way of fine tuning that?
I may need some date information for the Trading Standards office in relation to an exorbitant garage bill. I didn't take notes at the time, unfortunately (a broken computer and a tooth extraction the same week, there was a lot of disruption going on...)
cheers
Helen

I've moved this thread to Site Ideas. TBH, it's something which has bugged me in the past too. @ben

Re: Date settings on the forum

It's definitely an option in vbulletin normally there an option in the usercp section for if you want specific time stamps or if you want relative time when like we have now


On this forum that option is missing should be a simple change to enable to for somebody with access to the administration panel

Re: Date settings on the forum

Ok, finally got that done.

It's not actually an inbuilt option in vBulletin (at least, the version we are running) - but I've coded it in now.

Go to the user control panel, then scroll down to "Date / Time Options" - you will see the new setting there

Really that's odd? It's definitely been an option of others versions I've used on other sites haha unless they all custom coded it in

Scroll down about 2/3rds of the way, you should find Date and Time Options.
