I’m using “Volume” for my site. It Seems for showing title and date meta data volume using header element.
Now I want to display post update date instead publish date.
How Can I do this?

this doc provides the PHP snippet to change the date in a Header Element:November 22, 2019 at 7:41 am #1072649John
Works fine. But shows published date in before content as well.

Can you try disabling the Post Date in the Customizer Blog options:November 22, 2019 at 8:30 am #1072758John
The issue is solved.
One more question,
Is post Update Date(from Header Element), will show in google search as well?November 22, 2019 at 8:36 am #1072791DavidStaffCustomer Support
Your SEO ( or schema ) plugin is outputting published and updated dates in the JSON-LD for the site, so Goole will pick up the dates from there. Generally ( but we have no control over ) Google will choose the most relevant date to the article – as the only date displayed on the site is the Updated date it should prefer that.November 22, 2019 at 9:11 am #1072846John
Disabled schema plugin.
Could you please check now?November 22, 2019 at 4:56 pm #1073233TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperNovember 24, 2019 at 11:54 am #1075122John
Reactivate the Schema plugin.
I’ve updated few posts and applied them to fetch on google search console.
But unfortunately, Google doesn’t show update date even any date.November 24, 2019 at 7:57 pm #1075412TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
It’s up to Google, so the only thing you can do is provide the necessary data and hope they use it. Does all of the data exist if you run the URL through this tool?: https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/u/0/
