[resolved] how to schedule post for release in the future, but using postdate in the past? (2 posts)

    Hi,

    When I write a few entries for the blog at one time, I want to release them to the blog just one per day. I can future date the post and let the standard WP scheduler handle the publishing, but then the post has the publish date on it, not the date that it actually happened (which is in the past).

    How do I write a post for date-1 in the past, but have it made public in the future on date-2?

    Can anyone tell me how to do this? Do I need a plugin? Is there one?

    Since I couldn't find a way to do this, I decided to write my own plugin for it. In case anyone else is wanting the same thing (publish in the future with a post date in the past) then see here:

    Cheers,
