Adding timestamp in RSS items

Postby ChristianVirtual » Tue Jan 07, 2014 3:36 pm

While there is a timestamp visible in the news site on web there is no timestamp inside the RSS data for each item; only an last build date.

For a 3rd party app it would be great to have a timestamp for each item instead just one on header level. It would allow to focus on the latest news (let say on month old) and hide older one.

   <lastBuildDate>Mon, 06 Jan 2014 18:19:01 +0000</lastBuildDate>
   <!-- generator="WordPress/3.5.1" -->
