Is there a way to actually display old old time stamps? I did enter time stamp of post original date … you know diary like september 10, 1961 or the like … and it comes up with the day I entered, not the day I meant to show.
Any way to get that to work correct? I presume WP cannot count this far back? Is that the issue?
Dates prior to Jan 1 1970 can be problematic in some PHP versions. The best way to deal with this within WordPress is to store your historical date in a custom field (preferably in the format yyyy-mm-dd) and then edit your theme templates to display this field instead of the date that the post was actually created.
