Historical dates for blog posts?
posted by Victorvacendak to Computers & Internet (11 answers total)
Back in the Wordpress 2.6 days, I had a blog of World War II letters where the posts were time-stamped in the 1940s. It was pretty neat until Wordpress 3 came out, breaking it, and its handling of dates no longer worked with these old 20th century years.
I am trying to figure out the best way to write a plugin to handle these old dates, or whether a different CMS like Textpattern would work better with them. My only idea so far is to design a Wordpress custom field that keeps the 1940s dates, but then I wouldn't know how to make Wordpress sort them chronologically, so I am wondering if there is a better approach. Any help much appreciated.
