I understand now, and won't be putting anything on the schedule unless it's ready to post.
My question is this: Is there ANY WAY to undo the mistake I made in dragging things to dates when I hoped to work on them and publish, but didn't get to it? I have some that are still unfinished, yet they're posted. I deleted the calendar (planning to reinstall after I solve this, now that I understand) but the posts are all still publishing on the days I dragged them to.
I gotta solve this! I'm spending more time a day copy/pasting drafts to a new post that ISN'T on the calendar, then deleting the published posts, than I am getting any actual work done each day. Eons of time!
It's true. I have a huge number of drafts, and stupidly dragged them to dates. I can't seem to undo it no matter what, even with the calendar gone, deleted, vamooshed.
DANG ME! Not your fault. MINE.
But I don't know how long this will go on! Even the ones I tried changing the date on into the future are still showing up. The date hasn't arrived but my unfinished posts have!
Valuable lesson: never install a plugin until you truly understand the rules that govern it.
Welcome to my nightmare! ;D
Thanks, kids. I'm an old gal, so maybe it was brain-fade that made me do it. (nah. just plain dumb.)
