#14453 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Trac ticket opened and modified dates are displayed in vague format

When viewing a ticket on Trac, the dates when the ticket was opened and last modified are shown in a very approximate (and relative) fashion, e.g. '3 months ago'. It is often useful to know the exact date and time when a ticket was opened, for example, to know if a commit went in before or after the ticket was opened.

I would therefore like a full timestamp to be displayed, as it is on the change history entries. If people like having the information that is conveyed by the approximate relative date, it can be kept as well. Put it in parentheses after the timestamp or something. Might as well do that on the change history and attachments as well.

The interval display is standard Trac, and probably not easily changed via plugins. So how many people actually want this?

I would consider this an issue with Trac itself and therefore it should be reported to the Trac project.

It has been reported upstream before and marked WFM, because it turns out you can get the precise date in a tooltip if you hover over the vague date:

That seems like an unnecessarily inconvenient solution given that the information is right there in the page. There is a patch attached to that ticket which causes the full timestamp to be displayed.

Closing due to a lack of interest. It works fine as is, hopefully it will be per-user configurable some day.
