Uses the jQuery timeago plugin to create dynamically updating "time ago" dates. That is, the plugin turns static dates like "October 10, 2011" into "10 minutes ago" and updates the time ago every minute. This allows you to include "time ago" dates in cached content for most users while degrading gracefully for users with JavaScript disabled.

Before installing, download the plugin and put it in the module folder (so typically the file will exist at sites/all/modules/timeago/jquery.timeago.js).


  • An option to turn node created times into timeago dates
  • An option to turn comment created/changed times into timeago dates
  • Tokens for node created time and comment created/changed times
  • An option to use the new HTML5 "time" element, abbr, or span
  • An API to turn any UNIX timestamp into a timeago date

Additionally the Facebook-style Statuses module integrates with Timeago.

If the Libraries module (2.x) is installed, Timeago will use it to manage the library.

Please see the README for information about translation.
