    if i publish a post and then set it to draft,
    then i publish it again (and 3 times more).

    What will be the post date? will be the first publish time or the last publish time?

    Thank you!

    The first publish date and time will appear on the post no matter how many times you update the post, or put it into draft mode. However, you can change the date/time of a post. In the top right corner, in the "Publish" box, you'll see "Published on [date] [time]"--click "Edit" next to this and you can manually adjust this as you wish.

    Note that the time on your server/within WordPress may be different than you local time.

    To view or change the timezone settings within WordPress, visit Settings > General.
