The Instant View Editor uses a three-column layout, so you really want to use it on a desktop screen that's wide enough. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Issue #1

date is wrong. today is 2019.4.17, so 3 years ago should be 2016.4.16/or 2016.4.17, seems you're extracting date from url here, as admin confirmed before

>Doesn't matter that the site might abuse "today" date formatting. It's more important that IV shows the same date as the original article (even if the latter is wrong).

Yes, they have cached the date wrongly on the page, but it matters mostly what user sees on the page.

I don't agree with the admin.

But user doesn't see 2016.4.16 date. He sees "3 years ago". IV does not support this format, it always displays the day, month and year.

This means that we do not show the same date as in the original article, we show another date in any case. I think in this case it is better to show the correct date obtained from the source code. This is better than having an absolutely wrong day and an absolutely wrong month that is not even in the original article.
Declined by admin
"3 years" is pretty ambiguous. It's not specific and does not necessarily mean exactly 3 years ago from today.

The date in this IV seems reasonable.
