Automate WordPress Post Publishing: There are the many features WordPress Bloggers rarely take advantage of. One such feature is Post Timestamp. I typically use this feature when I plan to go on vacation, during holidays or when I know I will be busy with other things. The Post Timestamp settings allow me to set a drafted post to be published at a future date (let's the post go live in the future) while I am away from the computer. The following simple tutorial explains how this is accomplished.
How to Automate WordPress Post Publishing:
Login to your WordPress administration panel and begin to write a post as usual. However, don't publish the post just yet. Once you have finished writing the post, proceed with the following steps.
- Under the Post Status section, select the Draft option.
- Under Post Timestamp section, check the box to Edit timestamp and then set the date you would like the drafted post to publish.
- Click Publish
If all went well, your post should automatically be published in the future at the date and time you set. :)
