Update (05/04): Thanks to Phydeaux3 for stepping in. Some people were complaining on Consuming Experience about the script breaking the post editor buttons. These have now been fixed.
Update: Thanks to Improbulus for reminding me about this. I have now fixed the script to auto check the box when you’re editing unpublished drafts. I don’t know how stable my method is though, so if it doesn’t work for you, or breaks under any condtition, please let me know!
This script breaks Blogger’s inbuilt Spell–check. I think it has something to do with the repeating check for the time. I’ll look more into it and try and come up with a fix. In the meantime, this will be a good opportunity to try out Firefox’s wonderful spell check :)
Blogger Beta doesn’t fix this still, so I had to take things into my own hands! I missed the functionality of the original by Jasper, which broke in the new post editor. Hence, I have redone it to do the same thing, but now for Beta. Except a few known bugs, it works quite well! :)
It works the same way. A little toggle checkbox will show up right at the bottom of the post options box. It’ll be auto–checked for you if you’re starting a new post. However, I couldn’t figure out how to check for difference between editing a published post and an unpublished post, hence couldn’t create conditions to auto–check the checkbox. It’s a minor glitch which shouldn’t be a problem for most people. Just check it, and it’ll update your date and time! :)
As an added feature, it also keeps your post options open for you by default, as compared to the Blogger default of having to click the ‘Post Options’ link :)
I'm not very sure if the date formats differ depending on what you set as your time zone. The favonian format is MM/DD and rest of us follow a DD/MM format. If you see a discrepancy, please let me know, and I’ll make the necessary changes! As usual, any bugs or glitches can be reported here! I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
