    Apologies if this has been asked before or it is a Pro-Version. I did try searching for this topic with no success..

    Wondering if there is a way to have a short post created automatically by Events Manager a few days prior before the upcoming events?

    Would love to automate the posting process, so we're not continually having to remember to post upcoming events. And sometimes forgetting to post since life gets in the way.

    Love this plugin and would love to streamline the process so we can buy this plugin.

    Thank you.

    you can automate the posting process by editing the publish schedule at Publish Metabox "Publish immediately Edit" (click edit).

    Is this what you mean?

    I think this will only work if you're exclusively using WP archiving at the moment, because one an event is published, it's going to be considered published in our search index tables regardless of publish date (since we usually deal with future dates)

    in the future, this would work once we integrate our search algorithms with wp_query as well.

    @aglonwl: It would create a new post say a few days before the event to generate interest. I would hope it could be done a few days prior.

    @Marcus: Also published on my website too as a New Post? Because I've found people don't always go to the Events Calendar first, so manually posting the event helps direct their attention to the Events Calendar.

    is this on your home page then i.e. mix posts with events on the same page?

    If so, see something like http://justintadlock.com/archives/2010/02/02/showing-custom-post-types-on-your-home-blog-page
