Showing A Last Modified Date on Your WordPress Posts

 / Published in: PHP


If you run a blog where posts are regularly updated, you may want to consider updating your post meta data to also reflect the last modified date when applicable, rather than showing just the original posting date.

  1. Look for the code that displays the post date. It should look something like the following:
  3. Posted on: <?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?>
  5. Now replace it with the following code (slightly modified from Ardamis’ post):
  7. Posted on <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>
  8. <?php $u_time = get_the_time('U');
  9. $u_modified_time = get_the_modified_time('U');
  10. if ($u_modified_time != $u_time) {
  11. echo "and last modified on ";
  12. the_modified_time('F jS, Y');
  13. echo ". "; } ?>
