ability to set "publish on" back to "immediately" (12 posts)

    if one sets "publish on" and saves a blog post, it is impossible to set it back to "immediately" ("cancel" does nothing).

    i have several times accidentally "published in the past", as i don't pay attention to that field much - but some other author might have set it for their article that i publish later.

    we do not use any external software, just plain wp.

    this has been discussed before, but looks like the actual feature request was ignored.

    I'm not sure what the issue is here. You can simply edit the post and set its status back to draft.

    So you're talking about a scheduled Post?

    possible. not sure about wordpress terminology. user level description is in the first paragraph in the first post :)

    clicking cancel just leaves the previous date/time, but i want to make it "immediately" again.

    it was never published :)

    but for the draft (somehow) september 10th or so was set.

    Reset the date to Oct 2 with the time set to just a few minutes ahead of your current time.

    You can't. This is the closest you can come to it and will have virtually the same effect.

    yes, i spotted that i can't, was hoping devs might get interested in it ;)

    the effect also seems to be different, doesn't it ? if i'd like to set it to "immediately", but i don't know when it would be published - could be today, could be in a week - i can't really reset that value and forget about it...

    The difference is about 60 seconds or so.
