time change for edit

    I am using wordpress.com. Is there anyway to have the timestamp change whenever an edit is done on a post? I have edited posts (as the admin) and noticed that the timestamp has not changed

    thanks,
    Ricky

    This does not happen automatically. The time is the original publish time. To change this when editing a pot look down the right series of blue headings and find ‘Post Timestamp’. Check the box, change the time.

    This behaviour is normal to the other version of WordPress – it is not just a .com feature.

    does changing the time stamp (to the actual time) make an updated post jump up to the top of the stack?

    If you edit the timestamp to the current date and time then yes, it will make it jump to the top.

    How can a reader tell when I posted something? In my blog the posts don’t show the time of the post. Is there any way to include that? Thanks, Nusair Bawla

    Perhaps showing the time is theme dependant I do not know. It is not a feature on the blog templates I am using but there’s always the manual method available to you. Simply type the time of completion at the end of each of your posts and your readers will be able to see it.

    Showing the time is theme dependant. You can’t change it with the setup we have here since we can’t edit the files. (If you were able to, then you would be editing them for everyone who used that theme and the same if someone else edited it on you.)
