Time is a sensitive topic sometimes. A call for attention if something needs to be done swiftly, or for many other reasons, because time plays such a big role in our daily life.
The time a post is published is registered with its timestamp. In this specific case, I want to publish this post next Tuesday, as I’m writing it on Sunday morning.
Just to keep my post coming out on a regular schedule, every week on Tuesday. Now I can write this whenever I want, and yet publish very constant. At least that’s the idea.
On other cases, sometimes the content of a website is published in bulk. To prevent this from looking unnatural, editing the timestamp is a useful tool. In wordpress, you can easily change the timestamp of a post using quick edit, or in the publish block on the rightside editing a post or article.
