    return $post_types;
}

I have a number of posts that update every day from tables, but I also had to edit each one, just to update the date every day. This little plugin lets me select those posts, and update the post date for them nice and easily. A real time saver. One little issue. I have to set the new time for the post about 12 hours earlier than my time zone, otherwise it schedules the post somehow. But other than that, it's perfect.
