I am using joint and robot state publisher to publish transforms with a urdf.

For some reason though all timestamps on my fixed joints is 0 while the timestamp on the continuous joints is the current unix timestamp. How can I fix this?

You don't need to fix this. The timestamps of zero are not wrong. They are special to indicate that the static transforms are valid for any time.
