Is it possible to add the possibility to change the publication date of a post ?

It could be helpful to import manually old posts from another blog platform.

Using amsterdam you can already import Markdown files with an old date. All you have to do is to have something like that at the top of your files:

---
title: My article
date: 2015-01-25
---

Blah blah.

Maybe we could add support for other file formats to amsterdam? Which platform are your posts from?

Otherwise, I'm not opposed to this idea, but I don't know how to make it fit nicely in the user interface… Having this field when writing an article would be confusing for many people who don't want to use this feature I think…

Amsterdam is a little tool that you can install on your computer to local files to Plume, but I don't think it fits your usage so well…

On which Plume instance are you? If you are on fediverse.blog, I can manually change the publication date from the database if you don't want to wait for the feature to be implemented.

For the moment, I'm just testing fediverse.blog but I prefer to wait the feature implemented.
Thanks :)

Hi and sorry to reply on an (very old) request.

I was trying to import the mark-down files om my old blogs. But unfortunately this is doesn't work. As the cli tools 'Amsterdam' doesn't have any debug options i cannot find why it's failing.

Is there some-other way to import old blog-files using the creation date?

Thanks!

Plume API might help you if you can write some script though I don't know about amsterdam well.
