WordPress – Schedule Post

Video Tutorial

Script & Screenshots

In this video I’m going to show you how to schedule a post or page to publish at a later date.

On the right side of the page, you should see the Publish box.  Here you will see near the bottom:  Publish On.  And then a date.  That date will default to the date and time of when you created the new post.  If you’d like to change it to be posted at a later date, click on the Edit button.

Click on the drop down arrow next to the month if you’d like to change it from the current month listed.

I’m going to choose for my post to be posted a month from now.

Once you’ve selected the month, date, year, and time you’d like, click on the OK button.

Then click on the Schedule button.

Now you’ll see that it says it’s Scheduled to post on the date you selected.

Now if you change your mind, you can always change it to another date.  Click on Edit again and change to to a future or past date.

I’m going to change the month back to April and click on OK.

Once you make any changes, click on Update.

Once again, it shows the time I chose, and now that it’s back to a current or past time, it will say Published On, instead of Scheduled For if it’s a future date.

That’s it for this video.  I’ll see you in the next one.
