Timestamps for custom fields? (1 post)

    Is there a way to pull the timestamp of a custom field or field(s)?

    Here's what I would like to do to help clear it up as to what I am looking for...

    I want to be able to use the timestamp for custom css. If the timestamp is today's date, then I want it to display as "today" rather than the date format. By doing so I can use it to apply some custom css. The css would be to indicate if a custom field was added, edited or modified today.

    I've tried different implementations of the standard date code to no avail - <p>Date posted: <?php the_date(); ?></p>

    It only pulls the date for the post or page.

    Now... I am also using a plugin called Magic Fields 2. Basically just uses custom fields.

    OR... If anyone knows of a nice way to show what has been added, edited or modified on a page (including custom fields) since a user's last visit...that would work too...basically the same thing as above.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!
