    Hello Na,
    You can use the [DATE] to display listing creation date

    Where do I put the code [DATE], as the listing page was created by users.

    Besides, how about showing editing time?

    Use [MODIFIED] to display edit date
    Please go to Theme Setup >Page Setup >Listing Page >Enable Custom Display >Get Code From Default Layout.You can then add the shortcode where you want to display the date

    How to use [MODIFIED] in Theme Setup > Page Setup> Search Page > custom sort by options? I want to display the options for users that they can choose the newest and oldest modified listings, but don’t need to set [MODIFIED] as default display order because I have set [FEATURED] as the default one. I once wrote [orderby=MODIFIED&order=desc] but no results.

    Your suggested webpage showed the code as [orderby=modified], then I tried a few different combinations like [orderby=modified&order=desc], [orderby=modified_date&order=desc], [LISTINGS query=”show=10&orderby=modified”], but all of them showed error pages.
