WP Last Modified

WP Last Modified  adds the ‚last_modified_date‘ shortcode to your WordPress installation. This shortcode shows the last timestamp of your post/page. Simply use the „format“ attribute for custom date formats (it uses PHP’s date() function).The “description” attribute enables a brief description which changes has been made with the last modification.

WP Last Modified shows also the actual revision of and the publication date of the  post/page.

You can customize the text which will be shown under each post/page under settings -> WP Last Modified Settings. You can also hide one of the elements if you do not want them.

With version 1.1.0, WP Open Last Modified was renamed to WP Last Modified (read more).
