Need some help with diaplying the current date in footer

I have defined a PDF stylesheet for a space i would like to include the current date in the footer whenever i print the page. I used the @bottom-left { to define the footer. Is there a function to print date in the footer.

Hi Karthik, 

By default, Confluence doesn't have this option, but it can be done through macros.

You can use the dateFormatter's formatGivenString() method to specify a format:

$action.dateFormatter.formatGivenString("dd-MMM-yyyy", $some_date)

Hope this helps!
