Last Updated Shortcode

Creates a shortcode to display the date/time when a post/page was last updated (with optional formatting).

What is the shortcode?

You can use either [lastupdated] or [lastupdate], they both work identically.

What formatting options can I use

You can use any of the special date variables listed at this WordPress codex page. If you want to insert plain text (like the word "at" for instance) escape each letter with a backslash, \l\i\k\e \t\h\i\s.

How do I insert this in theme files?

Just wrap the shortcode in <?php do_shortcode( ); ?>. So to get the default display, just insert <?php do_shortcode( [lastupdated] ); ?>

Why did you make this?

Everyone likes a good shortcode!

Can I change the shortcode?

Yes, just open last-updated-shortcode.php and add or change what text you want to trigger the shortcode in on of the arrays near the bottom. If this gets any kind of popularity, I'll make that easier by adding an options page.

Can you add this feature I just thought of?

Can I? Yes. Will I? Yes, if I think it would be a helpful addition. I'm trying to keep things clean and simple, but there's always room for improvement, so let me know if you think a feature is lacking!
