I posted a question in here earlier, and it was answered promptly and helpfully. That encourages me to ask how to solve a new problem I have!
My problem is the time stamp. Honest to God, I do not even begin to understand how it works. I've looked at the FAQ, and the explanation there for changing a date doesn't address my issue. My issue is that I just published (about 10 minutes ago) a post with the title "Marry Him! (Even If You Can't Stand Him). I live in the USA, East Coast, and even though it was still Feb. 9 when I published the post (and still is, actually), the date on my published post was Feb. 10. Perhaps I should have just left it like that -- hey, it'll be Feb. 10 in a few hours anyway, right? But God made me stubborn. So I went into Edit Post and tried, about a dozen times (at least) to change the time stamp so that the post would be Feb. 9, at 10 pm or so (it's now 10:25 pm here). But what happened was that the system interpreted the time as being am not pm (I don't know why), and my just-published post was moved way back in the queue.
I know the time formatting is in some programming language called PHP, and I tried to figure out a solution by looking at the table of PHP characters. Bad mistake. I got even more confused. I simply do not understand how that time stamp works. I know there's got to be some kind of rational thinking behind it, but to me it makes no sense that I can figure. I know it's not, but it feels totally arbitrary to me because I don't know how it works.
However, I'm certain that there are many people here who understand this a whole lot better than I do. So if someone can explain to me how to modify the time stamp in such a way that my Marry Him! post will be on top, I would be endlessly grateful.
You guys are awesome, truly. Thank you in advance.
