What Are The Benefits of Using This?
We use this is on websites where we know there will be posts that are regularly revised to stay relevant and correct.
This also stretches back into the Google search with this date appearing instead of the original published date.
The shortcode we use is [post_modified_date], which is now included in Genesis since v2.1.
Showing the post modified date was possible before, but now it’s even easier.
The example snippet below shows the shortcode being used to replace the usual post date in the post meta, but as with all shortcodes, you can use it wherever you please.
This code would be placed towards the bottom of your functions.php file.
