Trouble with read view

Having issues with some commands not executing in read mode.
Does anyone else have the same issue and solved it?


created date: <%"YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm") %>
modified date: <% tp.file.last_modified_date("YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm") %>

A template command is usually only resolved when you execute it manually via “insert template” and is not refreshed. However, the templater plugin gives you such an option when you add a + sign - see this description.

That is what I am figuring out it only works if you are using a template to create a new note.

You can’t add this to an existing note which is what I want to be able to do.


That’s how templates work!

But I pointed you to the solution, so why don’t you try this?

You can insert templates into existing notes.

@anon63144152 yeah, of course you can - but I understood that what the OP wants is, for example, a modification date that self-updates with every modification. And for this to work, the line modified date: <% tp.file.last_modified_date(“YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm”) %> has to be changed:

modified date: <%+ tp.file.last_modified_date() %> (note the added +)

Hello, @alltagsverstand

Absolutely. I was replying (inexpertly) to this line:

Could also use this (or similar), depending on the plugins used:

`=dateformat(this.file.ctime, "yyyy-MM-dd-EEEE, HH:mm")`  

`=dateformat(this.file.mtime, "yyyy-MM-dd-EEEE, HH:mm")`  

Apologies, @alltagsverstand, if I was clumsy in my post.

FWIW, I see the NaN error when running the dynamic command. Seems to be a current, unresolved bug:

When you post code, it helps to mark it as code, like this:

created date: <%"YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm") %>
modified date: <% tp.file.last_modified_date("YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm") %>

You can use tilde (~) or backtick (`). (I used tilde because it’s easier to type on my tablet.) i did in for you in the main post.
