Since most of us lead such busy lives, it is hard to write content to an exact schedule. If you own a blog and want to make sure that you post content maybe once a day, twice a week, or once a week, the chances are that you will not be able to write the content exactly when you need it to be published.
For this reason, it is wise to have a few posts in hand and schedule them to post at the frequency you want, so that if your scheduled blogging time is taken up by another activity, you still have some posts that will be published in your absence.
Scheduling A Post
Fortunately, scheduling posts to display in the future is very simple. You write the post as you normally would. Then, instead of saving it as a draft, or publishing it immediately, you simply hit the “Edit” button next to where it says “Publish immediately” and you will be presented with a simple dialogue that asks when you want the post to be published. Just type in when you want WordPress to publish the post, click OK and the blue “Publish” button will become a “Schedule” button.
Viewing Scheduled Posts
When you hit the schedule button, the post will save and you can head back to your Posts, where you will see that the post is marked as scheduled for the date you set earlier. You can always make it more apparent by color coding your posts.
WordPress iPhone app
This also works on the iPhone WordPress app. Once you’ve written your post, hit the “Settings” tab on the bottom of the screen and you will be presented with an option for setting a “Publish Date”. Use this the same way as you would above.
