I am searching for a way to do this myself, but for slightly different reasons. I need to put trade shows that my company will be attending in the future. I was hoping we could use the blog for this, but couldn’t find a way to set the date on articles.

Currently I use two pages to handle this: one for recent items, and a second one that has the complete list. The recent item list is something that is displayed on the front page. I manually update both of them when I need to add a new item.

Being able to update the date of an article would seem like a simpler solution.

I sixth the motion. This should be done via an app though. With our API you can change the publication date of blog entries:

http://api.shopify.com/article.html#update

PUT /admin/blogs/id/articles/id.xml

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<article>
  <created-at type="datetime">2010-08-26T20:00:00-04:00</created-at>
</article>

An app could add a 'Change Publication Date' link to the article page in your admin.

This link doesn't go anywhere.  Shopify should make this flexibility as part of the theme template, just like it has a place for an excerpt, a seo summary, etc.  Another app is unnecessary

Is there a solution for this yet? This is very basic functionality that should be built in and not require an app purchase.
