(Done) Modified by field

Modified by field

6 years 9 months ago #29 by anthony cunningham

Is it possible to add a field type for "modified by" - as in the user who last modified it? 
Thank you for an excellent jumping off point with Component Creator - definitely saved me time and well worth it.

The best way is to duplicate that standard Joomla fields "checked_out" and "checked_out_time" and call them "modified_by" and "modified_time" respectively. In your code simply write the data in the checked out process to the corresponding modified fields. When the checked out process ends, the data in the modified fields is retained so you can always see who and when the record was last modified. Alternatively, you can place the fields into a MODIFIED table, and then have a (log style) record of every modification; who and when.

To ensure that the data in the record was indeed modified, and not just checked out, will require additional code.

For the JCC developers... this could be an option in the setup process.

...I'm new to structures in joomla components. Could you point me in direction of the right file to make the modification??

Funny that a field for update timestamp is already there - but not for updated_by..
