    How to make sure Publishdate/Last edited post date doesn't change in the backoffice

    I was wondering if there was any way to edit the backoffice so that whenever a publisher makes a small adjustment to their post that the publish date/ last edit date does not change.

    Thank you in advance.

    I don't think you can ... But there are 2 dates you can use, the CreateDate and UpdateDate. The first one will never change obviously because that's the date the node have been created.

    What is the use case here?

    I've been wondering if there is a way to, in essence, get the same function that Optimizely has. A function where that whenever a publisher makes a small edit that's not significant, that it won't update the date in the backoffice.

    Hi Alan,

    I've had requests like this before and the right way (for us/the client) was to not try to tamper with Umbraco's built-in security measures (who did what and when) but to add a Published date property on the document(s) and use that for display.

    This way the posts could always be sorted correctly on the frontend, while any corrections etc. could be shown in the Audit trail whenever there was questions about when something had been updated etc.

    Hope that helps,

    /Chriztian

    Hi Chriztian,

    Thank you for the quick answer, it has been really helpful. I've been using a PublishDate property for this reason but I've always wondered if there would be a way to actually implement this in the actual backoffice as well. But it does make sense to not tamper with Umbraco's own security measures.

    Thank you tons!

    /Alan
