I am attempting to add posts from my other blog to my yola blog and therefore need to backdate (chage them to previous months instead of the present). Is this possible?

Hello jdjdjlmj

Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the date of the posts.

Yola provides a basic blogging platform. If your main interest is in blogging and if you require advanced blogging features, your needs would be better served by blogging specialists such as Wordpress or Blogger.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

I have the same problem. I wanted to move blog posts from WordPress over to Yola but need to change the blog post dates. This seems to be a common problem. I see several references to adding this to the to do list over the last year but this feature is yet to be enabled. It would be helpful to move all blog posts over to manage one Yola client.

I agee. Changing date or option to remove a date is pretty important... I've seen some post earlier that the date issue will be on the list since 2008, Is this going to be a function?

It is pretty much just changing the date... if this could be pass on as a feedback, it would be great. Many people would switch over if you have this function....

I take it since the last post was 4 years ago and I am now having the same problem, it is not fixed. If other blog hosts allow it, I may move my blog over.

Hi Joseph,

We are no longer developing our blog platform so we do suggest moving your blog if you require additional features. We do offer integration with Tumblr if you think that might better suit your needs.
