Extending WordPress’ literary, documentary & archival potential, this plugin allows publishers to easily customize the publication year of posts & pages.
After installing and activating the plugin (https://codex.wordpress.org/Managing_Plugins), visit Settings > Advanced Dates. There, publishers can chose to either adjust dates site-wide or on a page-by-page and post-by-post basis. If a publisher choses the latter, s/he’ll be able to selectively (de)activate the plugin, customize the annual differential, and (un)freeze dates on each page/post’s editing screen.
Please note that the plugin will not take effect, even after activation, until a publisher chooses one of the two options in the Settings > Advanced Dates admin screen.

- Developer Notes
SH is very interested in the ways in which publishers use the Advanced Dates plugin. Please share ideas and usage notes in the comments section of the plugin URI: http://studiohyperset.com/wordpress-advanced-dates-plugin/4016
Also, the WordPress functions
the_timework only on pages while
the_datework only on posts. This is largely meaningless since developers can display the same date, time, and publication information using all four. Nevertheless, when developing a theme that builds on the Advanced Dates plugin, or trying to integrate the plugin into an existing theme, developers will want to keep these WordPress boundaries in mind.
Moreover, if a publisher or developer finds the plugin isn’t working for a particular theme, it’s likely the result of improper usage of one or more of the four date-oriented WordPress functions referenced above. For the Advanced Date plugin to work, developers need to use the
the_timefunctions on pages and the
the_datefunctions on posts.
