I have searched for two hours, probably 200 different pages trying to find a list of other date variable options. I know "entry_date" and "current_time" and want to find some kind of "modification_date" or SOMETHING like that...to display that instead of "entry_date". Does this exist? I don't know what to call it, nor do I know how to search for it...I found the ExpressionEngine "Date Variable Formatting" but that's for the format of the variable. Not a list of the variables themselves. Someone please help me. I'm going nuts! :-)

The exp:channel:entries tag has an edit_date variable. Here are the docs.

  • Thank you. I wish Expression Engine made searching for answers easier. I tried "modification_date" and "_date" and all kinds of things, never got there. It worked exactly like what I'd hoped. :-) Dec 30, 2015 at 2:25
