    Hi,
    since I change to Generatepress, Google shows only the published date instead of the last modified date in SERPs. Is there any option to change this back to showing only the modified date?

    Hi there,

    the snippet provided here will display only the Updated Date:

    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/generate_post_date_output/#only-show-updated-date

    May take google some recrawls to use the updated date.

    Thanks, but adding this, doesnt work with my other customizations:

    I need to display it like this:

    TITLE
    by Paul Winkler (author name) 10.10.2019 (modified date)

    How can I combine both my own snippets and the snippet you mentioned in the last reply?

    add_filter( 'generate_header_entry_meta_items', function() {
        return array(
            'author',
            'date'
            
        );
    } );
    
    add_filter( 'generate_post_author_output', function( $output ) {  
        return '<i class="fa fa-user-circle" aria-hidden="true"></i> ' . $output; 
    } );
    
    add_filter( 'generate_post_date_output', function( $output, $time_string ) {
    	printf( '<span class="posted-on">%s</span>',
    		$time_string
    	);
    }, 10, 2 );
    
    add_filter( 'generate_post_date_output', function( $output, $time_string ) {
        $time_string = '<time class="entry-date published" datetime="%1$s" itemprop="datePublished">%2$s</time>';
    
        if ( get_the_time( 'U' ) !== get_the_modified_time( 'U' ) ) {
            $time_string = '<time class="entry-date updated-date" datetime="%3$s" itemprop="dateModified">%4$s</time>';
        }
    
        $time_string = sprintf( $time_string,
            esc_attr( get_the_date( 'c' ) ),
            esc_html( get_the_date() ),
            esc_attr( get_the_modified_date( 'c' ) ),
            esc_html( get_the_modified_date() )
        );
    
        return sprintf( '<span class="posted-on">%s</span> ',
            $time_string
        );
    }, 10, 2 );

    Hi there,

    Try removing this one:

    add_filter( 'generate_post_date_output', function( $output, $time_string ) {
    	printf( '<span class="posted-on">%s</span>',
    		$time_string
    	);
    }, 10, 2 );
