Forgive me for sounding dumb.

When I add an entry to the BLOG and save it.....

1/ It doesn't record the timestamp I make (ie. I want to back date some entries). I am altering the date in the fields shown, but in the blog entry , it shows today's date and time now.

2/ Is there any way the BLOG can be set to display all entries in oldest first , rather than the latest entry first. For a diary , one would have to scroll right down to the bottom and work backwards to read it correctly.

Thanks for any assistance.

Ok forget the date stamp Q ...dumbo has figured you have to put a tick in the box next to the date change!

Still would love to auto display earliest entry first.

If you add this to the top of your index.php then your blogposts will be displayed in ascending order :-

<?php $order = 'asc'; ?>

My index.php file now has

<?php $order = 'asc'; ?>
* This is the main public interface file!
* This file is NOT mandatory. You can delete it if you want.
* You can also replace the contents of this file with contents similar to the contents
* of a_stub.php, a_noskin.php, multiblogs.php, etc.
* b2evolution - {@link}
* Released under GNU GPL License - {@link}
* @copyright (c)2003-2004 by Francois PLANQUE - {@link}
* @package main
* Note: we need at least one file in the main package

Now the BLOG doesn't display at all.

if you change the first line to :-

$order = 'asc';

it'll all start working again ;)

You can change the date format in admin > settings > regional.
