WP's getting dates wrong

  • Hi there,

    I’ve already tried updating to 3.5, but I WP keeps showing the wrong date. I’ve published a new post today and it’s still filed under ‘December 26’. I’ve tried changing the general settings and even though my time zone and location are correct, it won’t update to January.

    (I’ve had this problem since the start of 2013 and I haven’t installed any new plugins since so deactivating those probably won’t help)

  • Hi,

    Did you check date managing with your server host ?

    Thank you! I can’t contact my server host directly (my website is hosted under somebody else’s domain) but I’m not sure if this is the problem. Me and a friend both got our sites running under the same host, and her WP works perfectly fine.

    Also, I got this error today when I tried to upload an image: Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2013/01

    Very annoying, since I can’t do much with WP at the moment and I have no idea how to fix this.

    I think I fixed the uploading problem by creating a new folder and labeling it 2013 in the content/uploads area, but WP’s still getting the dates wrong.

    Are there any plugins known to cause this error? (I have about 30 active plugins running on my blog but if there’s no other solution, I will deactivate them one by one..)

    if there’s no other solution, I will deactivate them one by one

    Yes, that’s the standard troubleshooting process.

    Well I’ve just deactivated the whole bunch, and with no success. As soon as I try to manually change the dates of my posts, WP adds them to my queue of scheduled posts.

    Anything else I can try?

    I’d suggest resetting the plug-ins folder — just in case any are not completely inactive — which happens: http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_Troubleshooting#How_to_deactivate_all_plugins_when_not_able_to_access_the_administrative_menus.3F

    And with no plug-ins, switch to a default theme (twentyeleven or twentytwelve) to see if that makes a difference.

    This is probably a very stupid question, but resetting my plugins will lead to the loss of all my settings right? (I’m asking this just so I can make screen caps of my settings if necessary)

    I did some browsing and found this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/wrong-date-on-new-posts?replies=6

    Seems like I’m having the same problem, but I’m not sure about the offered ‘solution’. What should I do with the current_time data to fix this problem?

    (switching to twenty eleven didn’t help by the way..)
