How to Change Date and Time on WordPress

Updated at

To change the date and time on WordPress, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard.
  2. Go to Settings > General.
  3. Under the "General Settings" section, you'll see options to change the "Date Format" and "Time Format".
  4. Select the desired format for the date and time and click on the "Save Changes" button.

This will change the date and time format for the entire site, including posts and pages.

If you want to change the date and time of a specific post or page, you can do so by editing the post or page and changing the date and time in the "Publish" section.

It's worth noting that changing the date and time of a post or page will not affect the post or page's URL or its position in the site's archive pages.

Additionally, you can use a plugin like "Custom Post Time" which allows you to change the time and date of the post, this plugin gives you more control over the post publication time, and allows you to set the time and date in the future, which is useful if you want to schedule a post.

It's important to keep in mind that changing the date and time can affect the site's functionality, and it's recommended to test the changes before making it live, especially if you have a plugin or theme that depends on the date and time.
