Check out this tutorial on how to create a post template for your blog using Oxygen Builder.

Why change the date format?

Some bloggers prefer to use the 'Post Last Updated' format as opposed to the 'Post Published On' format.

Why?

If a blog post that's been published a few years ago has recently been updated, it's often a good idea for people to know that the post has been updated with fresh and relevant content. In this case, displaying the 'Post Last Updated' format makes a lot of sense.

Also, search engines like to display the date published for blog posts. So if the post date is a few years old, some people might not click on the post in the search listings with the thought that the content could be out of date.

OK, so go ahead and watch the video tutorial below for the more detailed process on changing the post date to 'last modified' for your blog posts -

If you want to add your own custom CSS to your Last Updated Info, here is the CSS selector. Simply copy this and paste it into Stylesheet and modify it.

/* CUSTOM POST DATE 
------------------*/
.post-last-modified-td {
     font-weight: bold;
}
