get_the_modified_time() WP 2.0.0

Retrieve the time at which the post was last modified. Works similar to get_the_modified_date().

Often this function is used within The Loop.

If you specify the $d parameter (display format), then this function will work exactly like the get_the_modified_date().

Works based on: get_post_modified_time()
✈ 1 time = 0.000164s = fast | 50000 times = 2.66s = fast | PHP 7.0.8, WP 4.6.1
Hooks from the function
Return

false/String. Formatted date string or Unix timestamp. False on failure.

Usage

get_the_modified_time( $d, $post );
$d(string)
Format to use for retrieving the time the post was modified. Either 'G', 'U', or php date format defaults to the value specified in the time_format option. The comprehensive list of formats.
Default: ''
$post(int/WP_Post)
Post ID or WP_Post object, the publication time of which you want to get.
Default: current post

Examples

#1 Get the last modified date for the post

echo 'The post was modified: '. get_the_modified_time(); //> 01:39

#2 Get the last modified date for the post with the custom format

echo 'The post was modified: '. get_the_modified_date('H:i:s'); //> 01:39:56

#3 Add HTML tags to the date

To add HTML tags to the date, you should escape every character of the tag with backslash \ to avoid its interpretation as a date format character:

echo 'Modified: '. get_the_modified_date('j\<\s\u\p\>M\<\/\s\u\p\> Y');

// Modified: 25<sup>Dec</sup> 2011
