Are you planning a vacation this summer, but would like to keep your blog running while you’re away? No worries. WordPress allows you to schedule publishing dates for posts in advance.
The first step is to log into your dashboard and write a post. Once it’s ready then look at the publishing area to the right of the editing area.
Click on “Save Draft” to save the post. Then click on the “Edit” after “Publish Immediately.”
Then you’ll see a place to set the date and time that the post will be published.
Enter the date of when you want your post to go live. Then click on “OK.”
You’ll notice that instead of “publishing” your post, you’ll now be “scheduling” your post.
Click on “schedule” and you’re set! WordPress will make your post live on the scheduled date.
