    I need to make my wordpress posts have a older date than what they really are.

    Example instead of having a new post show today's date, I want the date to be shown as created last month.
    Would this be a case of digging through wordpress' mysql database, or would this just mess up the blog?

    If you are using WordPress 2.7, in the post page there's this "Publish" column on the right.
    Next to the published date there's an Edit. Click on it to change the publication date.
    Remember to click the update button after you cahnged it.
