If you’re feeling prolific and you’ve suddenly written a whole load of posts, but don’t want to publish them all at once, or put them into draft mode and remember to come back to publish them on other days, why not schedule them in advance to go out automatically on the days you want them to?
Magic Moment #4 will show you how. After you’ve written your post, you’ll probably go to the Publish Menu at the top right:
And I’ve underlined Publish Immediately Edit – and yes, you’ve guessed it, click on Edit:
Here you can see the date and time, which you can edit to whatever you want in the future:
Once you’ve selected the date and time in the future that you want, click on ‘OK’:
Click on ‘Schedule’ and everything will be saved to publish at your desired time. If you want to check if everything is OK, click on ‘Posts > All Posts’ in the left sidebar and your scheduled post will show in its timeline.
If you’re canny, you will also notice that this post went out on the 9th August when I obviously wrote it on the 3rd.
