#11020 closed defect (worksforme)

Please remove the "Last modified" part of the wiki page from printing and preferably everywhere

It's meta-data and when printing trac should output only the page contents.

If you want it to be printed you can use the last-modified macro.

When viewing it's redundant as I can move the mouse up by 12 pixels and hit the History link.

Note that starting with v1.0, that link is now at the bottom of the page, so a bit less intrusive. See #8488 for reference.

There has been a lot of back and forth changes regarding this, but now I think we reached a reasonable default. Have that link present on the page is useful:

  • when printing, as the mention of the last edition date is more important than the date of the printing itself (you could print today obsolete information from 5 years ago!)
  • when viewing, the last modified link gives you lots of information in a compact way; in particular the tooltip gives you the version number, the author and the change comment. The link itself provides a direct access to the diff, which is also very useful (see #2635)

And if you still don't like the 1.0 way (or can't upgrade for some reason), well, that's very easily modified in your site customization with a couple of CSS rules.

Well, I have modified the CSS but I'm the sysadmin. Normal users won't be able to do this. Also, I will have to modify it every time trac is upgraded/security-fixed.

I'm fine with the last-modified header in normal view but I do think it should be removed from the print view. It's the only thing trac inserts in the print view that is not under user control. You can have a blank wiki page and it will print a blank page except for the last-modified header.
