Dates

A blog post’s publish date is the same as the file’s creation date by default. You can specify a different date in the file’s path or in its metadata:

 Post.txt 
Date: MMMM Do, YYYY

Blot supports a variety of date formats. These all produce a post with the same date:

MM/DD/YYYY   MMMM D, YYYY
M.D.YYYY     YYYY-MM-DD 00-00

You can use underscores, dashes, slashes and dots to seperate the numbers in the date.

Using the file’s path

You can specify a post’s publish date in its path. For example, all four of these posts share the same publish date:

 YYYY /    MM /    DD /    Post.txt
 YYYY /    MM /    DD-[Post.txt]
 YYYY /    MM-DD-[Post.txt]
 YYYY-MM-DD-00-00[-Post.txt]

Please note that a date specified in the file’s metadata takes precedence.

Schedule a post for publication

If you specify a date in the future, your post will be published then.
