- Create New Entry
- Edit Entry
When UpdateEntryDate is installed and you edit an entry, you'll see an
Update button above the Entry Date field. (Obviously, if your preferences for the current weblog are set not to display an
Editable Authored On Date, you will see neither the field nor the button.)
When you click the Update button, the date and time in the Entry Date field will be set to the current date and time. (Current, that is, on your computer, not on the server where MT is running.)
The entry's date in the MT database will not actually be updated until you save the entry.
