  • I’m manually duplicating an old WordPress blog (2.7.1), because it can’t be exported/imported automatically (a long story).

    Not sure why that would be true…if you have the db, then it “should” be upgradable and would save you a lot of work.

    Like I said “it’s a long story”. The fact is that it’s easier to do it this way – it being a small blog. And I get to leave behind a bunch of custom coding that the previous admin installed that was causing problems and to start fresh. Tried CSV export/import – no good.

    Now back to my question: What’s the best way to change post order/dates?

    In the table wp_posts edit post_date and post_date_gmt.
    Either via phpmyadmin or via mysql commandline access.

    The fact is that it’s easier to do it this way…

    Well, I was going to offer to restore it for you, but if it’s easier for you to do it manually, okay…

    Now back to my question: What’s the best way to change post order/dates?

    Open each post individually and change the timestamp.

    Thanks for your kind offer figaro – much appreciated.
    I didn’t realize I had access to the timestamp – will check that out.

    Thanks also rsciw, will use db edit (via phpmyadmin), if I can’t edit the timestamp via WordPress 2.8 and my theme.

    Cheers!
