    Hi, I would really appriciate a way for the posts "Published On" date to be modified automatically to whatever date it was last modified. I saw a similar thread about it:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/published-on-timedate-reset-after-updating-post

    But I would rather not go about it that way.

    Hope you guys can help me out on this, it'd reallly make my life easier. Seriously.

    If you do not want to customize code, then this may work for you:

    "...To schedule a post for publication on a future time or date, click "Edit" in the Publish area next to the words "Publish immediately". You can also change the publish date to a date in the past to back-date posts. Change the settings to the desired time and date..."

    You can use this to edit the date to whatever date you want - note this may mess with some RSS plugins and feeds as they appear by date published. That said a flag is set when a post is edited and a proper RSS setup will note that the post is modified since the original published date and the post feed will be updated at the time set in the feed reader...

    Yeah... That's what I'm doing now... It jsut sucks that I have to do it manually... I figured maybe somebody already wrote a plugin which does this sort of thing, or some code which auto updates the published-date... *sighs* ah well...

    Thanks though ;).
