WordPress Tip – Publish At Later Time June 29, 2009

If you use WordPress, you probably already know how to set up your posts to publish at a later time. It really is very easy, but it took a couple of tries for me to get it right. So, for anyone new to using WordPress, here is how to set up a later publish time.

When you are on the Add New Post screen, in the top of the right-hand column is the Publish box. It looks like this:

See where it says Publish immediately Edit? Click the Edit button, then you can set the date and time you want the post to publish.

When you are finished, and have the date and time set, then you click the Schedule button in the lower right of the Publish box.

Sounds simple, right?

Well, it is! I missed the step about clicking the Schedule button, and my posts were just sitting in my list. Once I figured out this last step, my posts have appeared right on schedule.

So, for anyone new to WordPress who hasn’t tried to use this, or for anyone having trouble scheduling posting times, I hope this helps.

Good luck!!
