Wrong Freshness for Scheduled Topics
I need to be able to schedule topics in advance. For example, I might come up with an idea and draft a topic at 11pm on Sunday night, and I might want it to go live at 9am on Monday morning.
That’s no problem. I just create the topic in the admin area and use WP’s built-in scheduling feature. The topic goes live on the forum at 9am the next day as expected.
The problem, though, is that the freshness in BBPress doesn’t reflect this. At 9:30am, for example, it should show a freshness of 30 min ago for that topic. But instead, it’s showing 10 hours ago — based on the time the draft was scheduled rather than the actual scheduled publication time.
This is a particular problem when I need to schedule a week’s worth of new topics at once (to keep a growing community regularly updated with new discussion points). They all show that they have similar freshness when people view the main forum or category pages, instead of showing that content is being published at regular intervals.
Is there anything I can do to fix this so BBPress reflects actual publication time (like WP does in general) instead of relying on the time the topics were physically edited?
