  4. It will highlight older posts by moving them back to front page and in the RSS feed.
  5. RevivePress will improve your blog visibility, traffic and SEO!
  6. And also Google likes updated content if it’s done right.

How to customize original post publication date format on frontend?

To customize original post publication date, you need to add this following snippet to the end of your active theme’s functions.php file:

add_filter( 'wpar/published_date_format', function() {
    return 'F jS, Y \a\t h:i a';
} );

Will it work with my theme?

Yes, our plugins work independently of themes you are using. As long as your website is running on WordPress, it will work.

Are posts duplicated?

By default, no. But you can configure it from plugin settings. The date on posts is updated to the current date making a post appear new. URLs don’t change and comments continue to display with the post.

Doesn’t changing the timestamp affect permalinks that include dates?

No, plugin can handle it efficiently by tinkering the Permalink Structure.
