I'm using the meta data tag. I can see my date going in
correctly using htdig -vv -- but its not being displayed in
the search summary.
I used "2003-01-22" and no date is set. Code inspection
in Retriever.cc parsedcdate reveals that it does NOT
allow a dash after the year part (it only allows spaces).
However the check for month allows dash or spaces.
Fix: At the end of year parsing, replace
while (*s == '-' || isspace(*s))
I can't decide if I should fix my htdig or change my dates
to be "2003 01 22" which works fine....
A related issue is the output of the modified date... I
suspect the meta date is GMT (although you can't
specify that), and the modified date output from search
is local time. I have been using dates with the day as 1,
like :1996-04-01 (well with spaces, but... ;-) and it is
the day BEFORE the date in the meta tag. As another
workaround I put the date in as
which when converted to a time zone still stays at 4/1/96
I guess I'll get email when there is some status update
