Is there anyway to publish a post at a time in the past? I’ve got some posts that refuse to import so want to set the correct dates if I do it manually. @help

@gr36 you can publish it and then go back into the post and change the date after the fact. If yo the quick no one will notice 😂

@AndyNicolaides @gr36 exactly , you can publish it and then change the date. And even if we notice, what’s wrong with reading something that’s old for you but maybe new for some of us 🤷🏻‍♂️

@Gabz it will change the url slug won’t it? I’d rather just get things done properly but still haven’t had a response from my help email.

@gr36 I see, I’m not sure about that.

@gr36 To set a date in the past before it's published, you'll need to use a different app. I recommend either MarsEdit on the Mac, or Quill on the web.

@gr36 While the new draft is open in MarsEdit, choose Post menu → Edit Date.
