Is there a way to display the site page publish date on the page itself?

We would like to use this feature on the news post pages.

  • We can show the page publish date near page title, is this what you want? Mar 3, 2021 at 11:23
  • Yes. That would be pefect. Mar 3, 2021 at 11:28
  • Try below solution & let me know if it works for you. Mar 3, 2021 at 11:54
  • This shows how to add the publish date on a page, but how do you show it on a site? The best would be to have it by default for all sites in that Hub if possible. Anyone that knows this? Like on this very site, if you look at the very button to the right.... Very greatful if you have an answer!

  • Hi, I have a Wiki page in Sharepoint and I cannot find the icons you described above. Is there a way to add the publish date to a wiki page somehow? I found the page properties but it looks nothing like your screenshots. Thank you.

  • Steps given above in my answer are for modern "Site Pages". I think you are using classic experience pages. May 10, 2023 at 9:53
  • How do I know if I am using Classic Experience? I cannot publish a screen shot in a comment.

  • check this: support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/… May 10, 2023 at 9:59
  • Got it. The link says "There is no modern equivalent of a Wiki page." So I do not think it is possible to put the publish date automatically on a wiki page. I have done some searching and my search results also say this.
