Most beginners are not aware of how to schedule a post in WordPress.
If you want to auto-publish a post at a later date or time rather than publishing immediately, WordPress allows you to do it in an instant.
Even when you have a complete post that’s ready to publish, you may want to publish it at a time when most of your readers will be able to see it.
Or you may want to schedule multiple posts in a row so that they go live automatically in your absence. In both cases, you can schedule your finished posts quickly and easily from within the dashboard.
If you have a WordPress website follow these instructions to schedule a post:
- After you have completed writing a post, don’t hit the Publish button immediately. Look closely above the Publish button and you’ll find many options. One of them is ‘Publish Immediately’. Click on the Edit link that is next to the option.
- As soon as you click on the Edit link, you’ll be provided with options to choose a specific date and time. Choose the date and time according to your specific requirements, when you would like to have a post published automatically.
- Click the OK button. You’ll now notice that the Publish button has been replaced with a Schedule button. You can click the Schedule button so that post is scheduled to go live at a later date and time.
That’s how you can schedule posts in WordPress ahead of time so that they are ready to go live automatically. This is a very simple thing and can be done in a few clicks.
