I’m sure most people know about this but the ability to post things in advance with WordPress is absolutely great. My two blogs (this one and Binary Joy) posted 16 articles whilst I was on holiday despite me not being there.
To post in the future all you have to do is:
- write your post as normal
- find the Post Timestamp panel
- edit the time and tick the Edit timestamp box
There you have it. Easy!
Why use this?
Apart from the obvious things, like going on holiday, I find that I often get into a blogging “mood”. I will feel like blogging and then do many posts, so rather than have them all go out at once, and then nothing for a week or two, I will make a series of posts and let them dribble out over the week or two gap. This means I can forget about my site and let it continue to update itself.
