I'm making a list of suggestion here. I need to insert current date/time for each of my suggestions - they are added accumulatively.

If you have any idea on doing that, please share.

  • Gi Vu: Do you do this via the regular post editor, or via the API? Because I thought both default to the current date and time if you don't specify it?

  • @Jan Fabry: Via regular editor. The date/time I need is in the post content not of the post itself.

  • Gi Vu: What if you would insert something like [curdate] in your post, and replace this in the content_save_pre hook with the current date and time? Because you do it before you save it to the database, it won't be updated the next time (because [curdate] will be gone).

  • Gi Vu: Nevermind, I did not notice you were on WordPress.com.

You're on WordPress.com, so there's no way to add functionality that will allow you to do this. You could always type the date/time manually whenever you update it.
