Would it be possible to add a date of story publication to the mouseover?  People with less than super memory might need help to figure out if they've seen the story before.

If you click on the link, the date is right at the top of the page.

Instead of changing the mouseover... When a group of new stories are posted could the title get post or mod date mmddyy or ddmmyy appended?

It might be possible to add that next time that the site gets overhauled. We'll let fats know.

adding a ddmmyy or mmddyy to the new story titles could possibly be a text edit to the story titles as they are posted . no code changes needed,

I've got to check which code to edit but it will be an easy fix, expect it done soon.

Rather than DDMMYY or MMDDYY why not make it clear? This is important if the date will be appended to the title, as opposed to being in a display field whose format is selected by the user's country or preference.

YYYY-MM-DD is the ISO Standard way of presenting dates. It makes clear what is a month and what is a date.

Just trying to think of ways to do it without the risk of a code change -  whatever suits the volunteer superpowers of the site admins.   Maybe it can slightly reduce load on the webserver if users are clicking into story titles to check the date.     Another way might be a "new" flag on stories per user like the forum topics.

Given that the mouseover effect already gives the start parts of a story, this indicates that the stories have already been loaded when creating the main blog page. The date is just another field of that record. So the code change would be to just add it to the mouseover part. How that happens is up to the original developer. It could be made in a way that the mousover contents are configurable - but it sounds like the code has to be edited slightly.

And a "new" flag actually sounds harder to implement as the ground work is probably not there. It's a question about wether or not flexicontent does keep track on what content (aka stories) your user looked at and what he didn't. That part might just not be there.
