XF 1.2 Edit Thread Start Date

Hey all,

I was just wondering if it was possible to edit the start date and the first post date and time of a thread? I have imported posts from a blog using the RSS and would like to backdate the posts to the first post date that they were put on my blog.

I did have a look in the Admin CP and couldn't see anything. Then into the database to see if I could hack it about but the time format isn't what I was expecting.

Any help would be great!

In the database, the time format is UNIX (or EPOCH) time. It's the number of seconds since January 1st 1970.

That can convert to and from that time format.

James' suggestion of an add-on that can do it for you may be easier.
