Post-dating articles & category appearance (2 posts)

    This may have been covered before, but I just couldn't find anything on it.

    I routinely "queue up" a long list of articles for future publication. Given my schedule, I can never be sure that I will be around to publish on a given morning, so the queue approach really works for me. I basically just put in a future date, flag it as "published", and save it. Works great under 1.5.

    Under 2.0, it still works, but the category list generated by wp_list_cats() reflects even the post-dated articles.

    For instance, if a category has 3 articles in it, but one of them is flagged for publication on a future date, it shows "3" for the article count, rather than "2".

    Also, if a category only has post-dated articles in it (i.e. nothing viewable by a normal user), the category still shows up in the list.

    I would think that the proper behavior would be to only show categories that have current articles in it, and the count for those categories would only reflect current articles.

    Thanks!

    I'll submit it as a bug with a low severity level.
