    Editing article & 'publish now' results in new date - why doesn't it retain it's original date stamp?

    This method of renewing date stamps for mere edits is confusing...

    Publish saves the article and sets the date to the current date/time which is by design. For edits, simply save the article and the original date will be retained. As long as the Publish Date is prior to the current date/time, the article will show without needing to be published again.

      I don't know why it doesn't retain its date. The workaround is to check the date before saving. This is a known bug and is in the issue tracker.
