How To Check Web Page Last Update

updateMany times we come across websites or blogs where the dates of the posts are not displayed or made hidden so that a person doesn’t come to know when that page was last updated.soal

With this simple trick you can come to know when a specific Web page was last updated.kenyit

This trick is proven to work for every web page and has been personally tested by me on Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, and Opera.

To determine when a page was last updated, follow these simple steps:

01. Open the page for which you want to get the information. Like for me its I333
i333 homepage

02. Clear the address bar [where you type the address of the sites]:
clear address bar

and type or copy/paste from below:

javascript:alert(document.lastModified)

paste javascipt

03. Press Enter or Go button:
press enter or ok

and Voila! a message box will come up displaying the date and time of the last update of that particular page:
message box

Press the OK button to remove the notification and continue browsing.
press ok button

This way you can know When Was A Web Page Last Updated.’ Hope you enjoyed it!senyum

    Thanks buddy :D

    It only shows the last date the content in the page was modified based on the “Last-Modified” HTTP header from the server. If your website uses a scripting language (e.g. PHP, ASP, etc) and doesn’t explicitly set this then it’s always going to be the current date and time. Even if your website is configured to send the Last-Modified header as an older date and time it still may not be the time the content was last updated.

    Thanks Chris, I didn’t knew this actually :)
    And hey some nice stuff in there in your site, Bookmarked, will surely read some articles there.
    See ya.

    Frankly, it doesn’t serve any purpose. Do I always have to remember when it was last modified and whether I checked that too?
    Feeds are great in this purpose.
    Nice blog, btw.

    He says we cannot determine the last update If your website uses a scripting language (e.g. PHP, ASP, etc) and doesn’t explicitly set this then it’s always going to be the current date and time. :|

    May be someone else can help you.

    This page is dynamic it will show your system time, because every time you run the script or view it print a new page.

    Cheers

  21. Stuff says:

    It told me the last time it was modified was quite literally the exact time I tried this, and as I tried and tried again, the seconds would increase just as they did on my computer…
