Would it be possible to have the date each widget was updated included on the main widget showcase page? Sometimes it's hard for me to figure out which widgets are new or updated since I last visited, especially since some update so frequently that I see today's update and assume it was the one from yesterday, and then don't look at all the other ones after it.
Thanks for a great site!

I agree. I have the EXACT same problem as stated above.

With dates, you would want to implement my idea.

Wow, I'm sorry it took so long to do this. The date is now shown when browsing the Showcase.

Now you must go to the widgets page in order to see who made it. Also why did you put up a "details" link?? It's much easier to click on the image or title. Razz

I don't see this "details" link. And if you click on the date, you see the author.

I think he may have been referring to the original presence of a "Details" link. You're right, Kenai, it was unnecessary so we replaced it with the date. And as bdog said, the name of the author is now shown on that page, an improvement over having to view the profile of the author just to see who it is.

OK I tried it. Now it is impossible to get to the person's profile!!

So you'd rather randomly visit a person's profile than know who that person is?

If you'd like, we can add a >> link to go to the details page for that widget developer.

Okay. But now nothing happens when I click on the date. Sad

Is that on the Showcase Index or category view? It doesn't actually work on category view.
