Backdate publishing

Hi @asmecher
Would you please guide me on how to publish back-date issues in OJS 3.2.1-1 as we have one issue that was published before installing OJS and now we want to publish it on the OJS platform? I have uploaded the article files and completed the process and given the back dates for publishing the articles but the problem is with the whole issue, when I click on publish the issue that shows the current date of publication; whereas, I want it to show the backdate for publishing the issue. Is there any way to do this?
Thank you for this unending support.


you can edit the date of the issue after it had been published… just select the back issue and edit the date…
