The {DIGITAL-OBJECT-EXPIRATION-TIMESTAMP} QuickCode Tag may be used within the digital_delivery.template.php template to display the expiration date in Unix timestamp format of each digital object listed on the digital delivery storefront page.

While Unix time is convenient for programming, it may be difficult for a human to interpret. A more human-friendly option is the {DIGITAL-OBJECT-EXPIRATION-DATE} QuickCode Tag, which displays the expiration date in standard time.

Requirements / Prerequisites

The {DIGITAL-OBJECT-EXPIRATION-TIMESTAMP} QuickCode Tag may only be used within the digital_delivery.template.php template, and must be used between the {DIGITAL-DELIVERY-FILE-BLOCK-BEGIN} and {DIGITAL-DELIVERY-FILE-BLOCK-END} QuickCode Tags, which must be enclosed within an HTML form.

A digital object's expiration is calculated based on the digital object's Shelf Life settings in the Digital Object Editor. For instance, if the digital object's Shelf Life is set to 72 hours, and a customer places an order that includes the digital object at 11:48 am on February 23, 2013, the customer's access to the digital object will expire at 11:48 am on Feburary 26, 2013.

Example of Use

If the following code is added to the digital_delivery.template.php template:

<form id="download_delivery_form" name="download_delivery_form" method="post" action="{THIS-PAGE}">
<table style="border:1px solid black;">
<caption><b>Download your purchased files:</b></caption>
              <th>File Name: {DIGITAL-OBJECT-NAME}</th>
              <td>Expiration Date: {DIGITAL-OBJECT-EXPIRATION-DATE}</td>
              <td>Expiration Timestamp: {DIGITAL-OBJECT-EXPIRATION-TIMESTAMP}</td>

If a customer placed an order that included the digital objects named Example PDF (with an expiration date of December 31, 2013 at 11:59 pm), Example MP3 (with an expiration date of December 31, 2013 at 11:59 pm), and Example ZIP (with an expiration date of February 26, 2013 at 11:48 am), when the customer accessed the digital delivery page for that order, the following would display:
