Summary of this Tutorial:

WordPress does allow you to change the dates on the posts you write.

You can publish articles with any date and time including backdating or scheduling out into the future.

To do this go to the post you want to change and click edit next to the date.

If you move the date into the future the publish button will become a schedule button.

Putting the date into the past places the post in chronological order.

    Hi, thanks for the useful post. I add some backdated posts, can I keep them from hitting my RSS feed? Thanks.

    Thank you. Very helpful. Just starting and to me it would appear silly as I set up my blog and all articles are from same date as I have written them over past 6 months.

    Would you please make a video that helps with changing the "Blog Posted On” Date To “Last Updated On” in WordPress? Thank you!
