Another observation...didn't see this on Beta 2, just with the newly released 4.7.1 final.

Reproduction steps

  1. Create a topic, modify the 'Publish' setting from 'Immediately' to some date in the future of your own choice
  2. Edit the topic
  3. Modify the 'Publish' setting to 'Immediately'
  4. Save the change
  5. Edit the topic
  6. Expected result
    • The 'Publish' setting should be set to 'Immediately'
  7. Actual result
    • The 'Publish' setting is set to the date/time at which the edit in steps 3/4 was performed

Just realized I have not the exact same case:

  • New topic created
  • Immediately deactivated
  • Future publish date entered (options were grey)
  • Saved

Result: Future publish date ignored, immediately published.

  • Thread edited, again entered future publish date
  • Now the date is saved and thread is shown with clock symbol in forum listing

So I performed both of the following and both worked:

  1. While creating a new topic, set to immediately publish, then come back and edit in a future publish date. 
  2. While creating a new topic, set a future publish date.

Could I confirm that you're on the latest release and have all third party applications/plugins disabled?

I think I found the issue: It's the browser, in this case Safari. Everything tested with a clean 4.7.3 install.

  • Safari shows the current date greyed out
  • Chrome shows placeholder (tt.mm.jjjj) – German placeholder BTW

Safari:

Could contain: Page, Text

Could contain: Page, Text

Chrome:

Could contain: Page, Text

Could contain: Text, Page

If I try to enter an incomplete date, Safari doesn't complain but Chrome does.

@Jim M & @Marc Stridgen – Can you try this with Safari?

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention! I can confirm this should be further reviewed and I have logged an internal bug report for our development team to investigate and address as necessary, in a future maintenance release.
