Change post date in WordPress


  1. Sohil Memon

    Hey hello,

    Thanks for the tutorial. But it didn\’t help. In fact, in my WordPress post it\’s showing \”Schedule\”? Can you please help me to resolve the problem?

    1. Sohil, if it\’s saying \’Schedule\’ that means you\’ve changed it to a future post date. Click it and you\’re good to go, brother!

  2. Thanks SO much! I wanted to make all my drafts go to the bottom of my post list and your tip helped me do that by backdating the post dates. Appreciate it.

    How do i change my wordpress posts dates from \”13 days ago\” to reflect the actual date, for eg, \”13 Aug 2015\”


    1. Hi Yani. That would be a theme based change. I\’d be happy to take a look at your site and let you know what it would take.

    I’ve posted a few times on WordPress and backtracked the dates to weeks ago, but the post still comes up as “19 hours ago” on my reader page ?? But it says the publish date when I click on the post ? How do I change it on the reader aswell ??

    1. Hi Brittany. Are you referring to your reader page on or the front side of your own site?
