Adding 'Last Updated' at the bottom of all Posts

3 Replies ·

  1. I need to add the date that each Post was last updated.

    I would like to add this just after the ‘Posted in’ and ‘Tagged’ at the bottom of each Post.

    If possible I would also like ‘Last Updated’ to be proceeded with the little calendar icon.

    Example:

    Posted in News, Photos
    Tagged 2012-06-30, Alexandria Minnesota, Arrow Wood Resort
    Last Updated 2015-05-15

    Thank you so very much!

    Copy `content/content.php` over to your child theme. Name it `post.php` and put it in your child theme’s `/content` folder.

    Then, just after line 26, which looks like this:

    `
    ‘post_tag’, ‘text’ => __( ‘Tagged %s’, ‘stargazer’ ), ‘before’ => ‘
    ‘ ) ); ?>

    `

    Add this code

    `


    `

    You can also give similar treatment to any other templates from the `/content` folder.

    For the calendar, add this to your `style.css` file:

    `
    .entry-published { margin-right: 5px; display: inline-block; }

    .entry-updated::before {
    display: inline-block;
    font-family: ‘Genericons’;
    font-size: 16px;
    font-style: normal;
    font-weight: normal;
    font-variant: normal;
    line-height: 1;
    vertical-align: middle;
    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;

    padding-right: 3px;
    padding-bottom: 2px;
    content: ‘\f307’;
    }
    `

    Worked perfectly Justin!

    Very nice coding and thank you kindly!

    As you know I have a family archive and the Posts (archives) need to reflect the last time they were updated so, this is very helpful.
