Editing post without bumping up last activity date


Hi All

Is there a way for admin to edit a post without bumping up the last activity date?

I have imported contents into Discourse and am in the process of cleaning up some older posts that contain spam or unauthorized links. Each time I edited a post in my forum, it bumps the post’s last activity date and bring the post to the top of the forum.

Some of these posts I edited are very old so it looks odd that they are bumped to the top.

Only the last post in the topic behaves this way.

You can change the timestamp of the post after you make the edit.


@scombs Thanks!! I have no idea we can edit the time stamp, will give that a try …
