Blot now tries to extract a publish date from a file’s path. A file named
2016-2-23 essay.txt will have a publish date of
February 23rd, 2016. The order is important. Please use
Periods, underscores, slashes or dashes can separate the components of the date. This means you can use folders. These are all equivalent:
/2016/2/23/essay.txt /2016/2/23-essay.txt /2016/2-23-essay.txt 2016.2.23 essay.txt 2016-02-23-essay.txt 2016_02_23_essay.txt
You can use this feature to change the date of image posts. It will work nicely with scheduled posts. You can also specify the hour, minute and second.
2016-2-23 11.25 essay.txt will have a publish date of
11:25 am, February 23rd, 2016.
Please note this feature is optional. Blot will still prioritize a date specified in a post’s metadata and will still use the file’s creation date if all else fails.
