Support » Fixing WordPress » Post timestamp..

  • I have a fairly simple question. How can I make WordPress show the time I started to post rather than when I finish? What I do is edit timestamp to show the start time and without fail it will show the time I finish. It’s so minor but annoying to me. I may start posting at 11:50 PM one night and get up to do something and it’ll say 12:30 AM the next day. I want the post to reflect the time I started the post. I promise you if you try it you can duplicate it. It would appear to just not save the “edit timestamp” setting.

  • I just changed the timestamp on a post and the post KEPT that timestamp. Note: using version 2.6.3.

    Did you change it before first publishing? I don’t mean after the fact. I’m trying to do this with current posts as I post them. Maybe I’m doing something wrong? I’ve been using WP for a while now and have never read documentation detailing the use of this feature.

    I just duplicated it on my WordPress.com as well. Maybe it’s a feature that’s not actually there that I think is? Here’s the scenario:

    I start posting at 12:49 (just now). I select “Edit” next to “Publish immediately” and it shows the time I started posting. I take however long to post and at 12:53 I’m ready to publish. I believe that if I publish it should say 12:49, but it says 12:53. Am I missing something? You can clearly see “Edit” change to “Cancel” when selected but I’m not canceling it, I’m opting for that start time.

    I guess no one can confirm or even understand what I’m trying to say?
