Nayem Just noticed that the date field on front-end is not even working. No matter what date/time you choose, it always saves as the current date/time on your computer. Can you please take a look what is going on with this?

Please see the screenshot above.
It saves correctly on date under custom field but not on actual post(Published on).
How do I make it to actually change the published date on the post??
(That’s how the previous version worked).

Hello O Park,

Yes, you are right. I got this issue. But I have to discuss with my developer before providing any solution to you. Please allow me some time.

Hello O park,

Did you change any code in render-form.php file? Because In our latest version I did not get the issue. I saw that in another topic you were talking about custom date feature. So please make sure that you did not change anything in your code.

I did change it to the code you guys gave me and found it has another issue (does not update date). I ended up reverting back to what is was.

I believe I have the latest version and it still does not update actual published date but updates date under custom field

Please update to the latest version which is v2.3.9. We did not get this issue in our latest version. Please check and let me know.

v2.3.9 does not fix the issue. Please see to see what the issue is.

Date field is actually working. However, it does not update ACTUAL PUBLISHED DATE on the post. Instead it just adds date on custom field.

It seems to be a BUG not a wrong set up on my site cause this is happening on your demo site too.

1.Please go to

2. Write something on the form and select date (*Don’t select today). see

3. See the post date on the published post. see

Please see, This entry was posted in Uncategorized on September 15, 2015 by demo although I select Sep/1/2015 it shows up as Sep/15/2015

YES!!! it is happening on your site.

PLEASE READ. SEPTEMBER 15, 2015 right underneath your title (DATE)

The date you highlighted red is date under custom field, the actual published date for that post is still SEPTEMBER 15, 2015.

Well that’s what I have been asking from the beginning of the time.
How do I change the actual date on post publish rather than custom field date?
