Related: is it possible in default skin (Canvas) to have post times displayed in absolute format (i.e. 2020-01-08 08:00 instead of "3 minutes ago")? If I select different skin, the times are in absolute format, but I hate the general look&feel.
BTW, not only that relative time format is ugly and non-informative, it also doesn't work on some browser/OS combinations. It works fine on FF72.0/Win7, it works fine on FF68.3.0esr/LinuxDebian10, but it doesn't work on FF71.0/LinuxUbuntu18.04LTS ... in the latest case it shows "last year" regardless the actual date (can be seconds ago or year 2016). The page source, retreived from forum server, actually contains correct timestamps, but displayed inside <span class="timestamp">timestamp
</span>. If I open "post reply", the dates of posts (displayed below edit area) are displayed just fine according to forum preferences ... So obviously the code defining class timestamp is sometimes not working correctly ...
Please, remove this ugly "hack" from CSS file of Canvas skin.
