    so I bought the premium theme but at the moment downgraded to the free theme because of ezoic errors. So I want to know how you can help me in showing article’s edited date while the original date remains.

    Hello there,

    You can try adding a filter like this:

    add_filter( 'generate_post_date_output', function( $output, $time_string ) {
    $time_string = '<time class="entry-date published" datetime="%1$s" itemprop="datePublished">Published on %2$s</time>';
    if ( get_the_date() !== get_the_modified_date() ) {
    	$time_string = '<time class="entry-date updated-date" datetime="%3$s" itemprop="dateModified">Updated: %4$s</time>
    	<time class="entry-date published" datetime="%1$s" itemprop="datePublished">Published: %2$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> ',
    }, 10, 2 );

    Thanks Fernando,

    Would it be possible to use that snippet within a header element? I’m currently using {{post_date}} but I’d like to automatically show the modified date instead if one exists.

    I would recommend using block element – post meta template.


    Thanks Ying! I was able to get the published/updated date working within the post meta template. Is it possible to pull the template into a header (hero image) element?

    Customer Support

    Hi Kumara,

    What type of Header – Hero Image are you planning to create?

    Perhaps using a Block Element – Page Hero would be more appropriate? Reference: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/block-element-page-hero/
