public const string CurrentDateTime


Note that this can result in unexpected behavior when using write times or other variable date/time values for documents (as Statiq Web does). For example, if you set this value to a date in the past, any time you edit a file, the write time for that file will be set to the current time and it will no longer be considered before your set CurrentDateTime value. When using this setting, you should also set explicit dates for all content where applicable (such as "Published" in Statiq Web).
