There are two ways you can use it. Either by modifying the template files (e.g. single.php or page.php or footer.php) of the currently running theme or you can add the shortcode within the blog post or page through the WP admin post/page editors.
To use the shortcode within the template file add the following PHP code:
<?php echo do_shortcode('[rup_display_update_date]'); ?>
To use the shortcode through the post/page editor:
= Can I control the date/time format for the shortcode?
Yes, you can. Through the widget settings (WP Admin > Appearance > Widgets > Recently Updated Pages) you can now control the date/time format for shortcodes.
= I'm trying to display the update date/time like 20th Aug 2010 at 5:30pm, but the word "at" shows up like "pm31". Why?
