Expected behavior

Post dates should reflect the actual date, and not be thousands of years in the future.

Actual behavior

The user created a post on the app that's being dated 9201. When they try to resolve this the app crashes

Possibly related: #10786. @malinajirka I suspect #10788 will help this case, agree?

Thank you so much for the report @sarahfg!

Hmm, unfortunately I don't think it will. The mentioned PR changes just a timezone, but it doesn't change the actual date/year. My first guess would be it's an api issue or the time on the server where the site is hosted isn't set correctly (if it's a self-hosted site). 🤷‍♂

It'd be great if we could gather more info from the user

  • when did they actually create/modify the post
  • did they create/modify it using calypso or a different device or they used only this device the whole time

+ having logs of the crash would be also extremely helpful

Additional details from user:

• I was modifying it on the 19 Aug, I'm not 100% sure if I created it that day or previously (sorry)

• I was just using this device the whole time. I did have to uninstall and reinstall the app because it had stopped syncing successfully, but the conflict happened after everything got resynced successfully.

• just tried it, and resolving the conflict worked for the first time (sigh!). Not sure if the app update fixed this (now on 13.6), or because I loaded the post in my web browser to see if I could check the date in order to answer (1)... I didn't hit save or anything, but wonder whether an auto-save 'fixed' the data?
