timestamp of the last post published (5 posts)

    I would like to have one website where i could have the timestamp to automatically get the date and time of the last post in the database, and increment N day(s), everytime I post a new article, instead of having the current date and time.

    My idea is to post a series of articles, like chapters of an e-book for example, and the website would publish them one by one, everyday or every week for instance.

    I am not that good with PHP/MySql. Is someone interested to develop this? I am sure that could be helpful to many people.

    You can post your articles and change the timestamp to a date in the future. When it comes to that date, if I understand how it works, it automatically posts. No stress, and very commonly done around here.

    The timestamp is on the WRITE POST screen. Below where you enter your post. Be sure and click the checkbox to EDIT TIMESTAMP.

    i'm not sure what you're really trying to get at, but it seems like you want future posts? This is already in wordpress. You just have to go into advanced edit when writing your post and set the date you want it to be published.

    Of course, but the idea was to get a system that is less time consuming since I have in mind a website that would have one post a day for a year. changing the date 365 is a bit of a pain. Of course I can do it manually, but I thought it could be interesting for several non-blog projects to set up a time incrementation (hours, days,...) and post a whole chunk at a time.
