change date in order to re-post an old post as new (6 posts)

    is there any sort of plugin or hack that will allow me take the oldest post & repost it with todays date, so my posts can rotate?

    Never heard of one and can't imagine many wanting such a plugin, but I could be wrong... it's happened before.

    Edit: What would be the point? Changing the date of the post will break the links if you have permalinks turned on. Once a post is read, why throw it back up? If a reader wants to read it again, they will either search for it or will have bookmarked it (though the bookmark will throw a "not found").

    because i dont care about permalinks. ...im using wordpress for content management rather than just a blog

    Well, you certainly don't have to display the posts by date.
