[resolved] How to change the post date to the update date? (4 posts)

    Hello, in my blog I tried to change the post date to the update date but I couldn't so I am using the WP Date Remover plugin that removes the date in my posts...

    How could I do this change? What plugin do I need?

    I know that have plugins that put the last updated date on the end of the post but I would like something that changes in the theme of the post like WP Date Remover does.

    Admin Dashboard>Posts>All Posts>Hover Post Title>Click 'Quick Edit'>Change Post Date/Time>Update>done.

    Note you can Edit Multiple Posts at once by selecting them from the list (which can be changed to a higher number in Screen Settings) and then using the Bulk Action selection, Edit>Apply but Date is not one that can be edited this way (who wants a hundred posts with same date and time anyway?)

    This can also be achieved in the Post Editor under Publish on right (See Screen Options if you have only one column or look below for this).

    Hello, thanks for the answer, I was thinking if there is a plugin or piece of code to modify that does it "automatically" or show the update date as post date because it is not practical changing it mannualy everytime I change a post and this happens a lot. I will let this topic open for more suggestions.
