We have a situation in our Forum where we need to change the timestamp of around 350-400 posts!
While this can be done via the rails console, I think its about time Discourse get a simple button in the UI to change timestamp on posts.
I think such power should only be in the hands of the admin and so at the moment i think a good place for adding “Change timestamp” button will be in the menu which opens up when you select a post:
Go to a topic as the admin
Click the wrench icon
Click "Select Posts…"
Select a post and you get the option to change its timestamp
Since there is a counter which counts the number of posts, we can restrict the change timestamp button to only show up when one post is selected?
My initial plan is that we will fork discourse and edit the code for ourselves. Not sure if Discourse wants such a feature? If they will be willing to accept a PR?
Anyways, im here for suggestion, tips!
Any suggestion for a better place in UI?
Im currently studying the discourse source code, so i will begin my work by the day after tomorrow.
And of course if anyone wants to volunteer their help, that would be awesome too!
