    Hello Daniel (and other wordpressers)

    I have a wordpress blog (3.4.2) running Edit flow 0.7.3.

    Whenever I make a post and save it, it changes the publish date from immediately to the current date. It seems to be similar to http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-edit-flow-custom-statuses-create-timestamp-problem.

    Steps I use to reproduce:
    1. Click New post
    2. Put in a title and body
    – Status is Pitch by default.
    – Publish immediately is set by default.
    3. Click the save button
    4. Click the save button again.
    5. Add some content to the body.
    6. Click Save
    7. The publish date is now set to the current date, if not repeat steps 4 to 5

    I confirmed that Edit flow is causing the issue, since disabling the plugin makes the problem go away.

    When you say:

    The publish date is now set to the current date, if not repeat steps 4 to 5

    Do you mean that if you were to publish the post 5 hours after creating it, the post would have the timestamp of when you originally created the post? Or does it have the timestamp of when you published it?

    Also, what happens if you change the publication time of a post before publishing? Does the post retain that time when you publish, or does it get changed to another time?

    Doing some more tests, the post keeps the date of originally created post.

    If you change the date before publishing (or clicking save), it keeps the time selected.

    To See the bug in action, I’ve created a Screenr recording:

    at the end you can see that after clicking save, it changed the publish date from immediately to the current date.

    I see what you’re talking about, thanks for taking the time to make a screencast.

    I’ve seen this issue before, but it should’ve been fixed a while back. I also can’t reproduce locally. As such, it might be a conflict with one of the plugins you’re running or your environment. Have you tried disabling all plugins and seeing if it reproduces?

    Without being able to reproduce reliably and confirm the problem is with Edit Flow, it’s difficult for me to help provide a solution. Apologies.

    I disabled all the plugins and the problem still exists.

    If you’re trying to recreate the issue, the problem doesn’t show up all the time, play around with the save button and editing the content and it occurs at seemingly random times.

    I might’ve reproduced this today. I’m going to take a deeper look.

    I just had the same issue. I looked a bit deeper, and I think it is beyond your plugin. There is a core bug in WordPress. You can find the trac ticket here:

    http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/19907

    Basically, I used the quick edit feature to quickly changed the post status… Apparently, it also sets the date.
