    I know the reference but not being able to implement it properly :(

  4. in a child theme of Twenty Twelve, create functions.php, and add the edited code of the 'twentytwelve_entry_meta()' function;



    function twentytwelve_entry_meta() {
    	// Translators: used between list items, there is a space after the comma.
    	$categories_list = get_the_category_list( __( ', ', 'twentytwelve' ) );
    	// Translators: used between list items, there is a space after the comma.
    	$tag_list = get_the_tag_list( '', __( ', ', 'twentytwelve' ) );
    	$date = sprintf( '<a href="%1$s" title="%2$s" rel="bookmark"><time class="entry-date" datetime="%3$s">%4$s</time></a>',
    		esc_url( get_permalink() ),
    		esc_attr( get_the_modified_time() ),
    		esc_attr( get_the_modified_date( 'c' ) ),
    		esc_html( get_the_modified_date() )
    	$author = sprintf( '<span class="author vcard"><a class="url fn n" href="%1$s" title="%2$s" rel="author">%3$s</a></span>',
    		esc_url( get_author_posts_url( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ) ),
    		esc_attr( sprintf( __( 'View all posts by %s', 'twentytwelve' ), get_the_author() ) ),
    	// Translators: 1 is category, 2 is tag, 3 is the date and 4 is the author's name.
    	if ( $tag_list ) {
    		$utility_text = __( 'This entry was posted in %1$s and tagged %2$s on %3$s<span class="by-author"> by %4$s</span>.', 'twentytwelve' );
    	} elseif ( $categories_list ) {
    		$utility_text = __( 'This entry was posted in %1$s on %3$s<span class="by-author"> by %4$s</span>.', 'twentytwelve' );
    	} else {
    		$utility_text = __( 'This entry was posted on %3$s<span class="by-author"> by %4$s</span>.', 'twentytwelve' );


    you might also want to edit this text: entry was posted .... on %3$s


    what search engines display might not be influenced by that output(?)

    Is there any way you can post a functions file for how to get the modified date AND the original post date?

    I'm looking to have my site display something like: "This entry was posted on [original date]. Last modified on [modified date]"
