Symptoms

After upgrading the posting date fields are no longer visible when publishing a page.

The problem

In 0.6.8, these fields were made invisible unless a certain config option is set.

The Solution

To turn them on, from the console or inside an extension, run this:

Radiant::Config['page.edit.published_date?'] = true

For example, this is what you might see if running the command at the console:

script/console production
Loading production environment (Rails 2.0.2)
>> Radiant::Config['page.edit.published_date?'] = true
=> true
>> quit

Don’t forget the “production” after “script/console”, otherwise you will end up changing the config option in the development environment, which is probably not what you want.
