Thanks but can we please do this one step at a time as I have literally no idea what you posted.

Step 1: "You need to convert the modified date to a unix timestamp" (using e.g. strtotime($this->item->modified)) where do I need to do this?

Here's the code you need for everything:
<?php
// First check if the item was modified/updated at all
$isUpdated = ($this->item->modified) ? true : false;

if ($isUpdated) {
    // The item is recently updated, so get it's modified date and convert to a unix timestamp
    $dateModified = strtotime($this->item->modified);

    // Get the current time as a unix timestamp
    $now = time();

    // Calculate the difference in days
    $diff = ($now - $dateModified)/(3600 * 24);

    // Check if the difference is less than 2 days & output some message
    if ($diff < 2) {
        echo '<span>Item was recently updated!</span>';
    }
}
?>

Use that in your own item.php template override.

Hi, many thanks for putting that together, I'm just having some issues getting it to appear on site.

This code will ideally go on my category item.php but I've tried to add the above to both item & category php files in nearly every position on each page to no aval, plus I also used the standard K2 files with just this code added...again it didn't seem to appear anywhere??

Is there something I still need to add to this or is there an option I need to apply in Joomla/K2 backend even though its hard coded?

Let's start with the basics... Did the items you check actually have a modified date?

Nope! I mustn't have been on an item that had been updated in the past 2 days - which I believe it was setup to show!

But its all ok now & it is showing great, I just completely rushed the testing in my haste to see the code working...

I've actually added it to the 'Featured flag' area (see attached) on my category pages and removed the <?php echo JText::_('K2_FEATURED'); ?> as words 'Featured' were literally displaying on every item & didn't it really stand out at all on my Category pages anyway.

But I'm really happy with this though, and I'm sure it will be useful to others (as not all items added to sites can be brand new stories every time) so giving the user a clue if you've modified on an old item is a really good feature!

Just one final thing though on the Homepage; which file am I to upload for this to display there...is it just the category.php??

It's category_item.php to be exact.

Ok that's strange as I have the code working in the category_item.php in the position below, but it doesn't appear to want to show on the homepage??


<code>
<?php if($this->item->params->get('catItemFeaturedNotice') && $this->item->featured): ?>
<!-- Featured flag -->
<span>
<sup>

<?php
// First check if the item was modified/updated at all
$isUpdated = ($this->item->modified) ? true : false;

if ($isUpdated) {
// The item is recently updated, so get it's modified date and convert to a unix timestamp
$dateModified = strtotime($this->item->modified);

// Get the current time as a unix timestamp
$now = time();

// Calculate the difference in days
$diff = ($now - $dateModified)/(3600 * 24);

// Check if the difference is less than 2 days & output some message
if ($diff < 14) {
echo '<span>Recently Updated!</span>';
}
}
?>

</sup>
</span>
<?php endif; ?>
</h3>
<?php endif; ?>

</code>

Your homepage may retrieve K2 content from a module or some other view. That's why you don't see it.
