#57473 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Unclear Documentation for wp_insert_post for post_modified property

Reported by: dshanske's profile dshanske Owned by: audrasjb's profile audrasjb

The documentation for wp_insert_post implies that post_modified and post_modified_gmt can be set using this, but it cannot if this is an update, only if it is a new post.

Personally, I actually wanted to be able to have this not updated for minor edits, which is why I was looking at the code, but noticed the explanation is misleading.

Thanks for the ticket @dshanske and for the patch @mehulkaklotar!

The patch removes post_modified and post_modified_gmt params from wp_insert_post() docblock, which looks good to me, since those params are not used in this function.

Self assigning for commit.
