Change multi post publish date or modified post date is a simple task in WordPress bulk post editing plugin. It can be changed in less than a minute even for thousands of posts at the same time. This means you are able to change publish date on your blog via the WordPress change post date plugin (WordPress bulk post editing)
To do this, follow the below steps:
Step 1: Filter multi posts at the same time
As we discussed before, to filter multi posts at the same time you can use “Filter Form” or “Quick Search” fields in our plugin.
In this tutorial, we need to change the multi post publish date of those posts published under “Lifestyle” or “Food” categories. So, we use “Filter Form” as below:
- Open “Categories / Tags / Taxonomies” tab in the “Filter Form”.
- Select “OR” from “condition” box.
- Select “Lifestyle” and “Food” from “Selection” list.
- Click on “Get products” button.
As we expected all posts with “Lifestyle” and “Food” categories are filtered. Now, everything is ready for bulk editing their published or modified date.
Step 2: Add columns
To better track the changes we are going to make by changing multi post published or modified date, we are going to add those columns to our post table from the “Column Profiles” form.
Although this is not a necessary step for using bulk edit and you can ignore it in this part, however if you want to change multi post published or modified date by using “Bind Edit” which we are going to explain it later, adding those columns are required.
Step 3: Change multi post publish / modified date
Using bulk edit to bulk edit publish date and change multi post publish date
Change multi post publish/ modified date is really simple and quick by using “Bulk Edit” form in our plugin. After, filtering your custom post, you just need to:
- Open “Date & Type” tab from “Bulk edit” form.
- Click on the box in front of “Date published” field.
- Pick your date from the displayed “Calendar“.
- Click on “Do bulk edit” button.
For example, as we picked “15.01.2021” from the calendar of “Published Date”, thise date were changed for our filtered posts:
Using bind edit to change multi post publish date
Another way for changing multi post published or modified dates at the same time, is using “Bind edit”. As we mentioned before, to use the “bind edit” option, you have to add the columns you need to be edited to the post table as we have already done for published and modified date columns.
Now to quickly change multi post published or modified date you need to follow the below actions:
- Select the proper posts by marking their check boxes.
- Mark the checkbox next to “Bind Edit”.
- Click on the “published date” column of one of the selected posts.
- Pick a date from the displayed “Calendar”.
- Push “Enter” on the keyboard.
Then you can see all published or modified dates of those selected posts will be changed simultaneously by the plugin.
