Latest Post Date

Adds two template tags `latest_post_date()` and `latest_post_modified_date()`.

Adds two template tags, latest_post_date() and latest_post_modified_date(), the first echoes the most recent post publication date, the second echoes the modification date of the most recently modified post.

Each template tag takes two params: $date_format, standard WP date formatting string (defaults to the default date formatting for your WP blog), and $echo, display the date, if TRUE, or return the date to be used in PHP, if FALSE, (defaults to TRUE).

For example: <?php latest_post_date( 'l, F j, Y', TRUE ); ?> would return a date similar to Friday, September 24, 2004 for use in PHP. Another example: <?php latest_post_date(); ?> would echo a date in the default formatting for your WP blog.
