The Instant View Editor uses a three-column layout, so you really want to use it on a desktop screen that's wide enough. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Issue #3

This article was published on October 23th and last time updated on October 15th. Your template reports the last update time as publishing date.

Here are the dates found in meta tags:

In Checklist 6.1.2 it is mentioned:

"Tip: Between ‘date published’ and ‘date last edited’, choose ‘date published’ for articles."

You may argue that these are conflicting dates, but are not. There are no two different publishing dates found in the source.
This issue does not make sense. October 15 comes BEFORE October 23. It is not possible for an article to be published AFTER it is updated.

Preference should be given to the date that is visible to an ordinary viewer looking at the page, and the date listed is October 15.

It does say "Updated" rather than "Published" in the text, but I think this label is just a mistake. It is the earliest date mentioned, so they probably mean the first time it was updated, which is essentially the publish date.
