#6483 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

Using mt.publishPost results in posts having date of November 30th, 1999

Reported by: nstech Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 2.3.3
Component: XML-RPC Keywords: mt.publishPost publishPost xmlrpc
Focuses: Cc:


I am guessing that the functionality of mt.publishPost should be analogous to that of clicking "Publish" on the standard WordPress "Manage" > "Posts" screen.

Creating a draft post in WordPress, then publishing it using mt.publishPost however results in the post having the date of "November 30th, 1999" rather than the current date as it would when using the GUI.

Can you provide the exact contents of the XML-RPC request and response?

Please see below:

POST /wordpress/xmlrpc.php HTTP/1.0
Host: server
Content-Type: text/xml
User-Agent: The Incutio XML-RPC PHP Library
Content-length: 260

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<?xml version="1.0"?>

I am using the Incutio XML-RPC PHP Library from


include "";

// Create the client object
$client = new IXR_Client('http://server/wordpress/xmlrpc.php');
// Run a query for PHP
if (!$client->query('mt.publishPost', 27, 'admin', admin)) {
    die('Something went wrong - '.$client->getErrorCode().' : '.$client->getErrorMessage());

// Display the result
echo '<pre>';
echo '</pre>';

What we need is the request that created the post. The only thing that mt.publishPost does is to publish an existing post.

i could fix that by using

<?php echo mysql2date('r', get_the_time('Y-m-d H:i:s')); ?>

instead of

<?php echo mysql2date('D, d M Y H:i:s +0000', get_post_time('Y-m-d H:i:s', true), false); ?>

in feed-rss2.php e.g.

But i do not think that is the right solution, just my workaround for my blogs and maybe i`m totally wrong here.. then sorry of course! ;)
