Limit Modified Date

Omschrijving

Prevent the modified date from changing when making minor changes to your content.

This plugin adds a checkbox to the Publish box, “Don’t update the modified date”. When checked, saving your post does not update the post modified date.

Minor changes like adding tags or fixing typos won’t bump the modified date.

This plugin will maintain the previous modified date. It does not let you specify a custom modified date.

When you’re ready to publish a major content change, you can uncheck this setting before saving the post.

Gutenberg Compatible

We are fully compatible with both the Gutenberg block editor (the new WordPress content editor) and the classic editor.

Customization

Your theme will need to use get_the_modified_date() to display the modified date.

This plugin only applies to the post post type by default. You can customize which post types it appears on using the limit_modified_date_post_types filter.

add_filter( 'limit_modified_date_post_types', function( $post_types ) {
    $post_types[] = 'page';
    return  $post_types;
});

Thanks for this great little plugin. I had an issue after migrating to a new SEO plugin. I had a few hundred posts that needed a simple update to fix the issue. But as my blog shows an updated date, it would have wrecked the real recency of articles. It solved the problem! And also, now I can make any minor updates without changing the modified date. Thanks again.

May god bless the author of this plugin. This is a very very useful plugin for sites which display Last modified date on the front end. repeatedly the one issue which arises is that u make one small change and the date changes. This plugin helps us do massive changes on site without tweaking the dates too much. Thanks again
