Time_ago_in_words in days only?


#1

Hi:

I’m using the time_ago_in_words in words function. Is there anyway to
get it to register only in days - some options I’m not setting? Meaning
to display in days only, so instead of going to a month, year, etc., to
register a #of days? I looked in the api for the function and don’t see
it.

If not, is there another function of which I’m not aware?

Thanks so much in advance!

Mike

Hi,

I remember seeing this as a new feature in Rails 1.2 bundled
ActiveSupport library.

Rails Pre-1.2 did this, you could grab the old time_ago_in _words and
use it to override the new one in your app.

Hi Jamie:

Thanks very much for your reply. Are you talking about extending and
overriting time_ago_in_words or is there some parameter that would do
it?

Thanks again!
