When I changed my timezone, my older posts didn’t change.

    This would be fine normally but I’m working on putting several posts on the same day, and I don’t want to go back and change every single post before I changed. Is there a way to easily fix this?

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


    Anything already published will not change. It will only apply to posts you make after the change.

    The reason for this is that the date is part of the URL permalink for the posts, and once those have been published, you do not want to change them. If the search engines have picked up the posts already, then changing the date will change the URL, and that will mean that the links the search engines have will then be dead and result in 404 file not found errors, and the search engines do not like that.
