    I just posted my second hub. (on 12/31) I want to keep the same date. How can I edit without changing the date? Or there is no such feature?

      Editing your Hub doesn't change the publishing date.

      The statistics page in your HubPages account displays the date a Hub was first published and last changed. The publish date is not displayed when a reader visits your Hub, but the date the Hub was last changed is.

        True. However, the concern Yukiko initially brought up in this thread is to have the date of publication displayed even when updated. A solution that I see some people don't take advantage of, is to enable the copyright statement in the display options of the hubtool. The copyright displays the year of publication, which never changes.

    It shows the last edit date.  Ask a team member for clarification.
