Schedule Posts In WordPress

Wordpress post schedulingTame the rollercoaster. Do you create a flurry of articles as you nurture your creative process? Some of us must have the time and focus to sit down and develop a series of articles, optimized for our websites and totally congruent with our overall message.

Although many writers discipline themselves to write an article on Tuesday and Friday mornings, the norm seems to be the creative rollercoaster. You can tame the rollercoaster by scheduling your articles to post using the WordPress post scheduling. Here’s how:

pub1If you use the native WordPress posts authoring interface, select the “Edit” link next to “Publish Immediately” It will open to a dialog to give you the option to post in the future. Select the date and time to publish and then select “OK”. Hit the "Publish" button when you have completed the post to publish at the desired time and date.

You can also change the publish date to a date in the past to back-date posts. Change the settings to the desired time and date and select “OK”.

If you use a local client like Microsoft’s Live Writer to create and post your articles, select “Set post date” to schedule. That’s all there is to it.
