Need help sorting out how to use 23? Or have you discovered one of those nasty bugs?

photos.setDates doesn't change posted date.

I am trying to make a simple script to change posted date = taken date, however something is not working right.

If I call photos.getInfo before changing the dates are correct (i.e. it shows the actual date I uploaded it), then I call photos.setDates to change the date, which works just fine. Afterwards I call photos.getInfo again, and the posted date is in fact changed.

However, on the site itself, the uploaded date remains unchanged.

I also tested my script to try to change the taken date, which works just fine and is reflected on the site.

Hey syntobu,

I think I know what's wrong on our end -- could you give it another try and see if it's better now?

Worked like a charm, thanks for the fast reply!
