Change Date And Time To Promote/Move Posts

Chrome uses published data to decide where the post is shown in Blog Archive or feed, we can change the published data after publish to move the post.

  • when set published date to future:
    • Update the exiting one: this will not change the date and time in the url but will change where it's put at Blog Archive
    • Publish a new one or again: this will schedule the post to publish it in the future
  • We can change an old post to a newer date to move and promote it
  • We can move similar posts together or distribute them into different months/years.

Add a post to the past

  • Publish a post first (using Automatic time)
  • Revert it to draft
  • Change date time to past then publish it again
  • ex: Awesome Tips about Chrome Vimium was added on 5/30/2019 and changed its date time to April 08, 2019

Thanks for this post! I used to have various blogs with blogger, now I want to merge all in one and transform it into Vuepress.

Sorry, it's true.
