Description

Hi ,

I had edited few earlier post's publish date to today. It make that post appear as recent post, it is not recreated because I can able to see the likes and comments that was there earlier. So I believe it is just updating the publishing date info in the db , so Total count should not increase, But it is showing total count mismatch in two pages , I have included the screenshot for your reference.

One page shows 105 which is correct, others show 106 ( wrong one)

Yes, that's what happens when you change a post's published date. The date gets updated. It doesn't create a new post for you.

Regarding the count mismatch, you need to reach out to WordPress.com's support available at https://en.support.wordpress.com/ since you're using WordPress.com. WordPress.org and dotcom are two separate and independent projects.
