Long backdating

    I would like to know if i can back date a post to around 1868 and is there a way to enter the date directly? It isnt feasible to back click the date and i need to do quite a few posts. This is for an archive blog i am considering setting up as if its been posted in the 1800’s and coming forwards in time, to present day

    The blog I need help with is firkinale.wordpress.com.


    Hi there,

    The publish date can be entered directly in the right hand-sidebar on the post edit screen > Settings > Status & Visibility > Publish.

    Here’s a quick screencast backdating a post to 1898:

    The full documentation for changing the post date can be found at:

    I hope this helps :)
