"Future posting" requested ... BTW, Gallery does not work in Safari. (3 posts)

    I would like to request the ability, or permission, to publish pages and posts on FUTURE dates ...

    Not to have them scheduled, but to have actual pages sitting there in public for special dates in the future, dated accordingly.

    I know this has been raised before in past version and discussions (and various plugins exist, but I would like to raise it again. Previously, it was just said, "That is not the way blogs works" ... but I, and others, do not see why not. If we want to, why can't we? I cant see technically what the problem is. For an example, I'd like to discuss Christmas Day dated "25th Dec" and publicize future events on their actual day in combination with a calendar plugin so folks can see dates in advance.

    BTW, to me it does not seem to be that Gallery works right in Safari (3.1 running on 10.5.2). I guess I might have to dig deeper in the prefs, or it may be template related, but it does not seem to auto-thumbnail.

    I have gotten images on top of each other or in different sizes at random across the page etc.

    Am interested to see how this release develops. Thanks.

    There isn't. Go open post.php and delete the line $post_status = 'future';.

    That's it. Any posts you make from now on will always show up, regardless of the timestamp.

    There isn't. The only difficulty lies with posts marked 'future'. "Future" posts are not "published". Therefore, all you have to do is stop WordPress from marking posts 'future'.

    How? Go open post.php and delete the line $post_status = 'future';.

    That's it! Any posts you make from now on will always show up, regardless of the timestamp. Even your monthly archives and calendars will reflect this. Happy? ;)

    Hey, send me an ecard if this helps!

    P.S. To change ALL 'future'-marked posts to 'published', run this SQL command: UPDATE wp_posts SET post_status = 'published' WHERE post_status = 'future';

    P.P.S. I noticed that upgrade.php sets future-dated posts as post_status = 'future' too. Darn it. After each WordPress upgrade, you have to run the UPDATE command again.
