The MU forums have moved to WordPress.org

Timestamp and Date Showing as 1969-12-31 (27 posts)

    Hello all,

    If this has been covered in these forums, I couldn't find mention of it.

    When I post a new entry, the post doesn't show up on the index page. I eventually figured out it is because my installation is dating it 1969-12-31 - so the post is showing up at the bottom of the 'manage post list'.

    I have tried to change the timestamp (yes, I checked the box :)) to no avail. Is this a known probem others have had?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    Never heard of that one happening.

    What are your MU, PHP, and MySQL versions?

    I haven't a clue. I am on the latest version of Wordpress, however, and using a company called HostGator.com.

    Then you're in the wrong forums.

    This is WordPress MultiUser, aka MU.

    You need to go here for WordPress.

    I'm having the same issue. I'm not sure of my MU version... I think I upgraded but y'all didn't think screwing up the updated version was a big deal, so I'm not sure. It says 1.2.1

    PHP 5.2.2

    MySQL 5.0.24a-standard-log

    Can you open up a ssh connection to your server and see what it's reporting at teh correct time and date?

    I've seen this as well at school, I think this may be posts are not published. I'm not at school so I can't check this. I don't know if the date fixes itself when published and I don't know whether its just the auto save or when the save button is clicked.

    I'm not on the new version at school either. (slack)

    You know guys. Yes, some of you think I'm rude and all that. I gotta admit that sometimes I don't thnk much of some of the folks atround here.

    Also after the update to 1.2.3, are we talking about previous posts that were made or new ones you're written and published afterwards?

    Regards,

    I just managed to replicate this on my test server. Editing and reediting a post but never publishing (and maybe never sving via the button -- I'm not sure produces an old date 1999 in my case on MAMP) Publishing the post fixes the date for me though.

    So while it is a bug it may be considered a quite minor one. pyman73 and mzman may want to confirm if this is their experience as well before adding a ticket to trac.

    Ya know, screw it. I'll figure it out myself. You guys are rude as hell.

    Maybe you need to work on your manners as you're the one who ignored those trying to help you.

    edit: Twice in fact.

    If you don't think that

    "CAN YOU OPEN UP A SSH CONNECTION TO YOUR SERVER AND SEE WHAT IT'S REPORTING AS THE CORRECT TIME AND DATE?

    is rude, then you need to learn some things about decorum or you need glasses.

    Why even post, if you're going to be such an ass? Why not just move right along and leave the thread alone, instead of bashing someone that wasn't even in on the original post?

    Note: There is a difference between users:
    Mzmartipants
    Mysorehead
    Pyeman73

    I did NOT ignore someone trying to help me. If you go back AND READ the thread you'll see that the post that follows your advice is from Mysorehead, NOT ME. And he was simply stating he'd duplicated the error.

    Also, if you notice Drmike, I was responding to Lunabyte's question, not yours. I'm not well versed in SSH commands and it took me a while to figure out the commands to get what I needed.

    I didn't IGNORE you at all, I simply hadn't figured that part out. When I did, I posted my answer. By then, you'd already made an ass out of yourself. I don't need this kind of treatment in a forum that is supposed to be about helping others. If you don't like all the newbs here, why not go over to the advanced forum and only help those users?

    This appears (to me) to be an ajax save issue. I'll have a look later in the week and post to trac if no one does it first.

    Richard

    drmike, you have chastised others for being rude by using CAPS before, just a few days ago I think.

    drmike, I was referring to this thread:

    "...I don't need this kind of treatment in a forum that is supposed to be about helping others. If you don't like all the newbs here, why not go over to the advanced forum and only help those users?"

    Ditto...

    drmiketemp obviously knows a lot about mu, but most of his "help", unfortunately, comes with a real big attitude attached. Personally, I agree with mzmartipants...I would rather figure it out myself than to deal with the attitude.

    edit: You know what? Screw the reply. I'm here to help folks. The people above are just here to lash out since they can't have their hand held and just want to interfere with those trying to help others.

    @mysorehead: again, please read the rest of the post that you copy from as you may have missed it.

    Hey all,

    Sorry I couldn't check the forum this morning before work. I have nothing against you (drmike) and am grateful for all the work that you do in supporting the many wordpress communities.

    I think the things have picked up in the last few weeks on this forum and drmike and the other regulars should be congratulated. To me a lot of the negativity has disappeared. I might still pick on the regulars occasionally but its all because of ( as lunabyte calls it above ) campfire love for possibilities of this software. And to me this forum is an integral part of the success of this software.

    I guess because you (drmike) are on this forum so much its hard for others to get in before you. And because of this you appear to set the tone. I've been trying to make a concerted effort to check these forums as often as I can and contribute when I can but there is no way I can get close to your output (or knowledge).

    This is ramblely and probably doesn't make much sense but I guess I'm trying to say is keep up the good work drmike and to the others who may have been slagged off in the past on these forums -- give these forums another go and lets make wordpress mu the best it can be.

    Yours in world peace,
    Richard

    PS. I love the new filtering makes us all look so *** naughty!

    I'm having this problem as well, but I noticed that the error only happens on some pages (even when the links are for the same posts...) For example, links created from the index.php file in the template have erroneous dates (yes, the template is using the 'the_permalink()' function,) but the same posts display the correct dates when viewed from the archive.php file (still using the 'the_permalink()' function.)

    @drmike: The dates in the seo links are based off the unix time stamp from the time that each post is made. The only way that this error can be caused by incorrect time is if a user (or each user in this case) had there clocks incorrectly set to the unix epoch January 1 1970 00:00:00 GMT at the time of posting. Plus users mentioned that the problem accrued in multiple posts, so their clocks would have had to have been stuck on that time. Not throwing stones, just an FYI.

    For what it's worth, I tested the php time() and date() functions on my server and they are working correctly.
