Is it possible to leave the date/time unchanged when updating an existing post?
  • I know I can "Edit date..." in the Edit menu, but I want to be able to leave the entry's date/time exactly as is when I upload a change. My blog will re-order an old blog entry to the top if I update the date to now, which isn't what I want when I'm fixing a typo in an old post!
  • Hi Mark - it is in fact MarsEdit's default behavior to omit the date from any API calls unless you specifically set the date using Post -> Edit Date.

    So the fact that your blog system is updating the date when you edit, is in spite of MarsEdit leaving the date off. You can verify this using Window -> Network Log if you feel like looking through the precise values MarsEdit includes when it edits the post.
