Display Scheduled Posts

A plugin that let's you display posts that are scheduled to be published on any page or post of your choice by adding [scheduled-posts] to it

The Displayed Scheduled Posts plugin, let's a user create a page or a post which will display a list of posts that are scheduled to be published with their titles and schedule date. It also, contains an additional feature that let's a user mark specific posts as special. The title of a post marked as special is not revealed on the page that lists the scheduled posts and is instead replaced by something user defined. The user defined text can be controlled from the plugin's options page. The reason this feature was added was to prevent visitors from stealing topics to write about by looking at the title of a post. The owner of the blog might not want to reveal the title of a particular post being published on a given day but he or she might want to inform the visitors that there is (or are) going to be posts scheduled for that day.

The newly revised version of this plugin adds a new feature which allows users to enter a temporary title for individual posts that are scheduled to be published. This works similar to the 'Mark as Special' feature which is already present in the plugin however this feature provides more flexibility. Again the purpose of this feature just like the Mark as Special post feature is to provide a method against preventing users from stealing ideas by looking at the post titles.

When a temporary name is used for a scheduled post, the real post title name won't appear until the post is published and made public! Using this method will allow your readers to get an idea of what your scheduled upcoming post topic is about, while guarding the real title from title thief.

The plugin is very easy to use. All that you need to do is upload the plugin and activate it from the admin panel. Once the plugin is activated, create a page or a post where you want to display the schedule or you can also opt on using an existing page/post. You would just need to add [scheduled-posts] in the content area and publish the page/post and the plugin would display the list of scheduled posts there. The posts are displayed using an unordered list with a class named sp which you can use to style the list. Basic styling that you can use is as follows. You'll need to add this to your stylesheet (style.css) located under your theme's folder.
