Fresh install of v2.0.1
All of my uploads are not populating the date they were uploaded.
i.e. the details are as follows:
TypeJPEG Image - good for photos
First uploaded01/01/1970, 37 years ago
Last changed24/04/2007, 3 days ago
As you can see, the 'Last Changed' date works fine, but the 'First uploaded' date is obviously not being populated in the database correctly at the point of upload.
I haven't researched any further than merely reproducing the error.
I've noticed this thing in the past but didn't deem it severe enough to be fixed; I'll ensure it gets on our to-fix list :)
The error is fairly understandable... 1/1/1970 is the "beginning" of time for PHP in most situations, if you're wondering why that particular date is being shown :)
Yeah I realise where the date comes from. Just not sure why it is not being populated.
You're right, it is no big deal, and in fact, I just uploaded some PDFs (as opposed to the GIFs I was uploading before) and it seems they are adopting the correct date, so who knows.
It looks like this bug occurs in specific circumstances. I'm looking into it.
So far I've been able to add both jpg and gif images with the associated first uploaded date being correct.
Let me know if you find out what these circumstances are. ;)
It appears when I do some changes (like changing title) and then save.
Any more info on this? I see the same problem when I update any article on my site. It changes the date to 12.31.1969. Please send any help!
