I keep reading post about changing the publish date at creation of a blog post but I am not able to find the option when I am creating a blog post.
Any information on this would be helpful.
It is RIDICULOUS that Atlassian hasn't bothered to fix this BUG after years of being aware of it.
There is however, a work around (at least for the version of Confluence that I am using - 6.0.something - I think)
If you have a blog post with the wrong date, start a new blog post, and on creation choose the date that you want - then copy and paste the text from the old (incorrectly dated) blog post into the new blog post. Then delete the old blog post.
For instance, I'd like to move my old content to confluence while preserving history dates (e.g, over a hundred release dates since 2007).
It has nothing to do with created/updated timestamp, but it must be possible to control the post history calendar and yyyy/mm/dd urls.
P.S.: We are developers, not bloggers.
Usually I prepare my blog post days before posting it (some needs technical review before publish, other needs hierarchical validation,...). But the post date is initialized the day you create the page not the day you publish it. Sometimes I forget to update the date when I "Publish" it and I then have a wrong publication date which can be months before the real publish.
In that case it would be great to be able to change the publication date to let the page appear under the right month in the blog pages tree.
It is not about lying, just use cases.
I'm exploring the opportunity to use the blog as changelog for my project. We have dates and content attached to them. And we can categorize posts with labels so that it is easy to filter them. (As workaround for having a single blog for the entire space).
Given that, I need to move already documented changelog into blog posts. I simply want to change the "container" for my entries, not lying on dates.
And of course I need to create a post ahead time of publishing. I think we need to be able to modify dates later, past creation and publishing.
