[resolved] Test updated all posts to current date (3 posts)

    I have a blog with 500+ posts - all of which contain flickr images. I did a test with 10 posts and the plugin worked really well except it changed all the published dates to the date I ran the test. Obviously this isn't ideal! Any tips on avoiding this?

    Only the attachment AKA image post_date field is updated on import. Next, there's only two calls to wp_update_post and they solely update post_content.

    I wonder if you have another plugin that fire offs when attachments come. Can you check or give me an idea of what other plugins you have activated?

    I decided to back up and just go for it - it all worked fine! Had another issue but will put that in a separate post.

    Thanks for replying!
