Allow us to edit the date of our Blog Posts

I think one of the most important and basic feature of any successful blog is allowing the users to edit the date of each and every blog entry.

And since Yola do not offer the feature of importing a blog from a different or outside source (like wordpress, blogspot, etc) then I think it is only fair to let us at least change or edit the date of our posts.

I don't really get why you would need or want to update the date.

Imagine if you already have a previous blog but you wish to move it to your Yola Site.
If you can't edit the date of your entries then all your previous posts are almost worthless.

A blog is somewhat considered a diary or journal right?
If it's a personal blog then you need to post a specific activity on a specific date.
Thus, editing the date is a must to show consistency.

This is exactly what happened to me - I moved my entries to this blog and they all have the same date which looks silly.

Hi Leonides,

The decision is that it won't be looked at in the foreseeable future along with other developments of the Yola Blog.

The Yola recommendation is to use another blog platform but it's not possible to migrate the Yola blog to any other as this has been pulled by Yola. So sad!
