This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Plugin Activation Date

Description

Current features:

  • Adds a new column on the plugins dashboard screen that shows when each plugin was activated, only if PAD was installed before
  • Control whether you’d like to see a relative date or a “regular” date as set under Settings > General

While by default the date & time settings are being used, you can always change the date format by filtering ‘pad_date_time_format’. For instance:

<?php

add_filter( 'pad_date_time_format', 'my_pad_date_time_format' );
function my_pad_date_time_format( $date_format ) {
    return 'm-d-Y';
}

Here’s some more info on date & time formatting in WordPress

  3. You’re all set!

Reviews

So glad I found this plugin!

I’m so glad I found this plugin. I wish I had found and installed it much sooner.
Long story short: For anyone even considering installing more than a dozen plugins this plugin here is absolutely essential!
It makes it much easier to track down those pesky plugins that break something on your site without you immediately noticing.
I have about 50 plugins installed (even though I’m striving to have as few plugins as humanly possible) and this activation date tracker is an absolute life saver! Thank you so much for creating this tool!

Most definitely 5 stars from me!
