Add Banner to make it more obvious to users that the page is outdated

This is a concept from the Auto-Wiki-Gardener.


There could be a banner on the outdated pages which shows the users, that it is outdated.

- "This page was not updated since X, and could be outdated"

If the users have the necessary permissions, the can

- "confirm, that the page is still relevant and current"

- "Edit, the page"

- "Archive the page"

and for users that dont have permissions

- "Notify the Author/Last Modifier"

To this notification could be added

- "a proposal what needs to be changed"

    Giving better visibility into the current status of individual pages (and page trees) is the leading theme for one of the next versions, not too far in the roadmap. Thanks for posting this!

    This has been implemented in Archiving Plugin 4.3.0, named as page status indicator!

    The option of having a banner just like the Auto-Wiki-Gardener-plugin provides, would help a considerably amount.
    Since a lot of people won't notice the page status indicator icon.

    A solution would be a checkbox-setting to either only use the icon combined with the pop-up or to always show the pop-up-info as a banner instead of the icon.

    UPDATE: We have released the Better Content Archiving app's cloud version just a few weeks ago. It addresses many points criticized in the Data Center version, including also this one.

    (Our plan is that, if there is interest, we will back-port the most valuable changes from the Cloud version to the Data Center one.)

    In the cloud version, we present the content status in a so-called byline item under the page title:

    When you click the status icon, it will open the Content Status Indicator popup with detailed information: status, expiration date if there is, archiving date if there is, owners if there are, last view, last update. At the bottom of the bottom you can use the so-called primary quick actions to edit the page, confirm the page or view its analytics:

    In the "..." menu you can access the secondary quick actions. With those you can set the page's expiration date, archiving date, owners.

    We hope that this modern interface is easy to notice, gives instant access to all information needed to understand the status of the page and provides easy to use action to modify the status.

    🔥 Try this in action now!

    Although not as visual as preferred, this is better then before and opens up more options for restyling with CSS.

    Please do update the Data Center-version as well, since a Cloud-option is not an alternative to all companies yet.
