Home Forums Pro Support Updated Date Meta from GeneratePress Reply To: Updated Date Meta from GeneratePress


Tom, Seems like you made an update to updated dates in GP but I still can not get this to work for WPSP?

It shows the correct updated date, but not the words “Updated”, should just add content Before CSS? I was just concerned about the Google aspects of a solution like adding CSS this way.

I mo=ust be doing something wrong given the CSS class for the date is .wp-show-posts-updated

I am using the following Snippet to change the dates to Updated in GP.

if ( ! function_exists( 'generate_posted_on' ) ) :
 * Prints HTML with meta information for the current post-date/time and author.
function generate_posted_on() 
	$date = apply_filters( 'generate_post_date', true );
	$author = apply_filters( 'generate_post_author', true );
	//if ( get_the_time( 'U' ) !== get_the_modified_time( 'U' ) ) 
		$time_string .= '<time class="updated" datetime="%3$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() )
	// If our date is enabled, show it
	if ( $date ) :
		printf( '<span style="float: left; margin-right: 3px;">Updated:</span><span class="posted-on">%1$s</span>',
			sprintf( '<a href="%1$s" title="%2$s" rel="bookmark">%3$s</a>',
				esc_url( get_permalink() ),
				esc_attr( get_the_time() ),
	// If our author is enabled, show it
	if ( $author ) :
		printf( ' <span class="byline">%1$s</span>',
			sprintf( '<span class="author vcard" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope="itemscope" itemprop="author">%1$s <a class="url fn n" href="%2$s" title="%3$s" rel="author" itemprop="url"><span class="author-name" itemprop="name">%4$s</span></a></span>',
				__( 'by','generatepress'),
				esc_url( get_author_posts_url( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ) ),
				esc_attr( sprintf( __( 'View all posts by %s', 'generatepress' ), get_the_author() ) ),
				esc_html( get_the_author() )
