I'm using this module 'Blackbird Advanced Content Manager 2' for blog posts.

I want to get the date created / published / modified and output it in the php template.

There is no mention of this anywhere in the docs. Has anyone worked out a way of doing it?

Such a simple / common / necessary thing for blogs, can't believe there doesn't seem to be a function for it :/ Judging by the lack of information online I'm guessing no one uses this plugin because it's rubbish?

If I try their method to 'get all raw values' $content->getData() Annoyingly I always get a 'php memory exhausted' error (Even when I set memory_limit to 50Gb!). So I don't know if there is a 'date' field available in there. I've also searched the module php in app/code looking for any mentions of date variables but couldn't find anything useful.
