UpdateAuthoredOn is a plugin that modifies the interface of Movable Type. When the plugin is installed, you can click a button to set an entry's Authored On timestamp to the current date and time.
UpdateAuthoredOn requires the BigPAPI plugin, which is included with the UpdateAuthoredOn distribution.
UpdateAuthoredOn is compatible with MT 3.16 and higher.
To install the UpdateAuthoredOn plugin, upload the file
UpdateAuthoredOn.pl to the
plugins directory within your Movable Type directory. If
BigPAPI.pl is not already present in your
plugins directory, upload that as well.
UpdateAuthoredOn is available free of charge under a Creative Commons license.
Please use the support forums for all support requests, bug reports, feature requests, questions, and comments regarding this plugin.
- Create New Entry
- Edit Entry
When UpdateAuthoredOn is installed and you edit an entry, you'll see an
Update button above the Authored On 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 Authored On 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.
