Blueprint Date K2 Override Behavior

How can I replicate the Kirby 2 behavior for the date picker where it could “override” on save.

I really liked having a “last updated” field that captured when the page was last updated, but it doesn’t seem like this feature was carried over into Kirby 3.

Yes, right, there’s no such option anymore.

Possible solutions:

  • your own data field
  • a hook that updates the page on save.

What would be the proper way of doing it?

I am doing this and it’s working:

// hook within a plugin
'hooks' => [
  'page.update:after' => function ( $page ) {

    if( $page->last_updated()->exists() ){
        'last_updated' => date( 'Y-m-d H:i' )


Is that all, or is there something missing?

@moritzebeling That’s all there is to it. I’d make this field readonly (or hide it), so the user doesn’t try to interact with it.

Thank you!
Exactly. That’s how my field looks:

  label: Last updated on
  type: date
  translate: false
  disabled: true
  empty: Date on which this page was last updated
  time: true
  step: 1
