If you’d like to set a post to publish at a future date, WordPress makes it easy. Here’s how to do it.

Posting at a later date in nice. But how about unpublish at a later date.
I use this feature on .tv sites to ease the pain of publishing through the week. With those sites I use the onDemand theme so prepping the featuredimage and thumbnail for each post can be done all at one time.
Great video! and just that kind of info I needed right now…
Agree with Ronald would be a nice feature to unpublish at a later date
This is such a great feature! WordPress makes it possible to arrange a writer’s work times with those of his/her readers. Thanks to WordPress!
This is a great feature I was not aware of. I will take advantage of this tool in my future posts.
Oops, you said “publish” rathar than “schedule”. Anyway, good video :).
Its a great feature. Thank you very much.
I love these videos and this feature is really cool but I have a question. Saturday I wrote something and set it up to be published on Monday afternoon. Sunday morning I woke up and wanted to make a couple small changes before it publishes. I can’t find it. Where did it go? It’s not in drafts or anywhere else I looked. Thanks!
It should show up as “scheduled” when you look at the Posts » Edit list. If you don’t see it there, give the search box at the top of the list a try.
The best place for you to ask questions like this is on the WordPress.org support forums if you’re using self-hosted WordPress, or to check the support page on WordPress.com, the the WordPress.com forums, or even by submitting a support request if you need help with a blog hosted at WordPress.com.
Amazing post, keep it up….
we have previously used another system and want to bring into our new wordpress blog, previously published items. Can you use this facility to back date? ie An article published last year, imported into wordpress and published/timestamped in a date that has passed
Yes, you can – just set the publish date for any time in the past.
You should have a link to them on YouTube or perhaps a video podcast channel on iTunes. Something for the iPhone user.
Two questions: if I set the time at 6:00, does it post AM or PM? 2nd question-I had one scheduled for a few days later. I decided I wanted to publish it immediately but could find no way to make that change.
The time in the publish box is in 24-hour notation, so your example would be 6 a.m. – 18:00 would be 6 p.m.
Once you’ve scheduled a post, you have to set the time back to something a little before the current time or a touch after for it to be published “immediately.”
great! thanks for the video too …
like the feature….thanks for sharing.
This scheduler hasn’t been working for me. Each time I schedule a post, it gives me a “missed schedule” status and does not post. Can anyone help with this?
