I am auto posting into WordPress from RSS feeds.
I can't set the post_date or post_date_gmt to the date in the RSS feed item.
I have researched this but with no success.
I read on this forum that WordPress wants the date in ISO 8601.
I am capturing the data going into WordPress by also adding it to custom fields.
The RSS feed contains the date as follows which I believe to be the standard format:
Mar 16 2012 07:26:02
$my_post_date= gmdate('c', strtotime($rss_date));
I get the following:
Nevertheless I am still getting for post_date the time when the post was published by WordPress.
