I'm wondering whether Drupal keep tracks (keep timestamps) of every time a node is updated (not just the last updated). If it does, how could I access this in the front end?

  • I think you will only get these timestamps if you provide revisioning.

Yes, Drupal stores the updated date, but for that you need to enable revisions on the content types you need it. From your revision table, you can get when a node has been modfied. You can also get how many times you have created a revision and other revision details.

Check the node_revision table; you will get the details.

  • But do you know how to access the node revisions on the view? Commented Oct 6, 2015 at 9:51

    Content revision: [field_name] In this way you can add the field on the view. Commented Oct 6, 2015 at 10:30
  • @WagnerMatosUK Also, a revision can be updated in place, so you won't necessarily see all times a node had been updated. Commented Oct 6, 2015 at 20:41
