How do a make a post show how many minutes ago it was created, rather than the standard date created

is there a way to keep track of how many minutes ago a post was created?

The easiest way to do this is to insert dynamic text that calculates 'current date/time - (minus) this post’s created date/time. The resulting text will be the difference between the two dates. There is also a date range feature that may be applicable:


Here’s a super easy way:

Current date/time:extract UNIX - [whatever data type your post is]'s Creation Date:extract UNIX / 1,000 / 60.

Should display exactly how you want it to.

UNIX will give you a representation of each time in milliseconds, which you divide by 1,000 to convert into seconds, and then divide by 60 to convert into minutes.
