    Date problem in 6.0.5

    Hi,

     

    In my source filt I have the following element:

    <ObjectCreateDate>2011-02-10T10:07:00</ObjectCreateDate>

    In my import steps I've setup the createDate as follws:

    createDate =ObjectCreateDate with format yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss

    The createDate is still being set to now.

    Also tried the format without the 'T'. Didn't work either.

    I really need to import the original date. How to fix?

    Hi Vincent,

    Yes sorry. I have seen it myself also. The underlying API of Umbraco V6 doesn't allow to set the create date anymore. It always falls back to now. I will remove this option in a future release. Waht you can do is create a separate property and use that in the site to display the create date.

    Cheers,

    Richard

    Richard,

    Thanks for the swift reply. That's exactly what I just tought up. 

    Stupid I didn't think about checking the V6 API.

    Hi Vincent,

    Yeah I always want to avoid using the database directly instead of the API.

    Thanks,

    Richard

    Hi Vincent,

    Sorry for the delay on this but I've just released version 2.4 of CMSImport which ignores the create date in Umbraco V6

    Hope this helps,

    Richard
