#10780 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

historical dates (pre 1-1-1970) not possible

In a fresh install of WP 2.8.4, running on Linux, php 5 (on MediaTemple GridServer), when trying to change the date of a post to 1814 (or any pre 1-1-1970 date, for that matter), the date is changed automagically to 1-1-1970, including the permalink %day% %month% and %year% values.
Thus, rendering it impossible to create an archive of historical, pre-1970 content.

In this wp-forums thread it is discussed:, and a solution is suggested here:

But removing those lines does not solve the bug. So it must be somewhere else where there is a check on negative date values in WP 2.8.4.
