I couldn't find an option for displaying the year on posts.

I would like to suggest this be done by default.

Sometimes how old a technical answer is matters to the value of an answer.

Have a good weekend and thanks for the free, useful, forum

When I look at posts more than about a day old, at the top of each it says something like:

posted 8/9/2013 4:27:44 PM

Can you be more specific about where you are looking and or not seeing it?


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

The year is displayed for me. For example, the first post in this topic that you have just posted in was made on May 12th 2008 and the post before yours was from November 21st 2011.

Yes, I do not see the year, I just see May 12th and the time. When I go to "My Profile" I don't see any options for displaying the date.

George,
The main site uses JavaScript to display the year so it depends on your browser/computer settings. The mobile site (coderanch.com/mobile/forums) always displays the full year.

What settings would I need to change in my browser to get the year? I was using Firefox on Windows 7 at work.

This article suggests it is a Windows setting.
