Put this in the appropriate template.

<?php echo human_time_diff( get_the_time('U'), current_time('timestamp') ) . ' ago'; ?>

Normally the php file you should look for would be entry-meta.php

Remember to use a child theme..

  • @Eleonorarossini great it works ;-) can you please mark the answer as the correct one? Many thanks!
