My b2evolution Version: 1.10.x

I found the following information on editing post's timestamps in

Below the Save and Preview buttons you'll find the advanced properties section. If you want to change the date and time of your post, check the checkbox for editing the timestamp. Then adjust the date and time.

However I don't have any such checkbox in my write tab (expert mode)...What do you think I might be missing?...

Thanks for your help! :)

Thanks for your tip.

I checked out the demo and found out there is definitely something wrong with my blog backoffice, since the edit timestamp fields are missing (please see screenshots below).

What might have happened for these fields to go missing?

Once again thanks for your help...

since the edit timestamp fields are missing (please see screenshots below).

It's there ;-) check "Issue Date" on the second screenshot on the bottom left

Yeah but the second screenshot is of the demo, not the site. You can tell because right above it it says 'screenshot of the demo'. ;)

Very sorry.
Are you in simple mode or in expert mode ?

Also permissions come into play but I can't say for sure what level of permission you need to set where. Are you blogging as user ID #1? As a rule #1 has all perms everywhere. Food for thought...

Very nice, EdB. The file _item.form.php in /blogs/inc/VIEW/items/ reads on line 192 (b2evo version 1.10):

if( $current_User->check_perm( 'edit_timestamp' ) )

and continues with creating the timestamp form.

Interesting... I've got the same thing happening on a fresh 1.10.2 installation.

The thing is, the date and time fields are there, but the edit checkbox is not. This is happening under the admin account, and also under a privileged blogger account with all checkboxes for group and user perms enabled. It is *only* happening for already-published posts and for drafts... For new, blank posts, the checkbox *is* there...

So what happens when a draft is finally published? It shows the date the draft was first started? What if it was being drafted over several days? The draft gets published with a date of several days ago?

(The reason I ask is because I've never actually used the draft feature before, so I'm not sure exactly how date/time works with drafts)
