I know this might be a slightly obscure problem, but please hear me out nonetheless.
I am working on a project that involves "posting" blog posts before 1900, basically I am setting up a historical timeline and would really like to use the archive by year functions that wordpress provides. I have posted over 100 of these historical posts and now that I have reached dates before 1900 I have realised I might not be able to continue my work and everything was pointless.
I would really really really appreciate any kind of help and can provide links or any helpful information if needed.
Thanks in advance.
