How do I use this plugin?
I have a WordPress blog in an evergreen niche (Family and relationship), where the content is never outdated. I often use this plugin to add freshness to the “Modified date”, and it gives more confidence to the readers, as it seems like the post is new and relevant. Again, this would work only in the evergreen niche.
1. Search the plugin name and Bulk edit publish date on the Add Plugins page.
2. Install and activate the plugin.
3. The plugin adds a bulk action to all post types that allows the admin to set the publish date to a specific date time.
