Auto Future Date

Description

Make it easier on yourself to schedule future posts.

Auto Future Date allows you to quickly and easily schedule posts based on the
last post on your site. A simple click on a link and your post will be scheduled
for a future date based on a set of simple rules that you set up.

I use this on a blog of mine where I write several posts at a time and want to
spread them out rather than publishing them all at the same time. Future posts
are great for this, but I found myself going back and forth to the calendar
to schedule.

When activated the plugin adds an “Auto” link right next to the link that you
use to schedule a future post. Clicking on the Auto link makes an Ajax call that
will set the date for your post at some point in the future, using rules that you
set.

Options

An options page is added that allows you to set a minimum and maximum amount of time
to schedule in the future. It also allows you to set the earliest and
latest times that you want your posts scheduled.

Posts are scheduled based on either the latest future scheduled post or the current
date, whichever is later.
