editing timestamp without modifying post URL not possible?
|Reported by:||mikafoobar||Owned by:||markjaquith|
When editing a post which has been published already, I can edit the timestamp using the "Published on:"-item within the "Publish Status" box, but then the URL of my blog entry (using the "Day and name" permalink structure) changes. So instead of keeping $DOMAIN/blog/2008-05-10/foobar as the blog entries URL it will become $DOMAIN/blog/2008-05-22/foobar instead; people linking to the old entry ("$DOMAIN/blog/2008-05-10/foobar") will get a 404 error then. :(
IIRC it was possible to edit the timestamp of a specific blog post without changing the "published on" property in earlier wordpress versions, that's the behaviour I'd like to get back. :)
So instead of modifying the URL of my blog entry when updating information inside an article I'd like to just modify the timestamp of it so people get an update of the post via RSS.
