Returns the relative time between a provided time and the current time.


date = '{entry_date}' // Unix timestamp (default EE date format)
show_labels = 'false' // Show the date labels (years, minutes, etc)
show_empty = 'true' // Hide values that equal 0


{exp:timespan date="{entry_date}" show_labels="true" show_empty="no"}
The time difference is {timespan:years} {timespan:months} {timespan:days} {timespan:hours}{if '{timespan:minutes}' != ''} and {timespan:minutes}{/if}.

{if {timespan:past_future} == 'past'}

Lots of problems with this plugin. Unable to get it to determine whether an entry has a future publication date—generates PHP errors. No developer support link here to ask questions….
