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

In selected article publication date is specified as "СЕГОДНЯ" (today), and there is a little question I do not understand: how does the function "datetime" handle relative date format?

Will the publication date always display the _current date_, if the original version is in a relative format, and is displayed as "today" or when only time is present?

Because at the moment the relative dates in Preview are not processed as it should.

Article that loaded on June 4, displays _current date_ if the publication date contains only time, and displays current date + 1 month, if date is specified as "today".

Some examples how it works on page that loaded on 4 Jun (input date // parsed value)
today // 10 Jul 2017
today, 00:00 // 10 Jul 2017
today, 11:00 // 10 Jul 2017, 11:00
yesterday // 09 Jun 2017
yesterday, 11:00 // 09 Jun 2017, 11:00
00:00 // 10 Jun 2017
11:00 // 10 Jun 2017, 11:00

P.S. articles doesn't contain any other usable meta-tags or scripts where article date have absolute format.

Did I do the right thing in this case, by specifying "00:00" instead of "СЕГОДНЯ" as the published date, or would it better not to try to parse the relative date format and display IV without a date?

Sorry it took us too long to reply to you. It is acceptable not to parse the relative date format and display IV without it. Since you’re able to parse a relative date well, it’s a fine approach too, but we will consider reports if they show how this approach leads to troubles.
Type of issue
IV page is missing essential content
