Postpone Posts

Description

Imagine you wrote a lot of posts that you planned to publish in the future. Now an event occurs that forces you to change your plans. Either there are overlapping posts or you have to postpone (i.e. reschedule) all your future posts.

This is where Postpone Posts comes in handy. It takes all planned posts and postpones them by a selectable number of days.

Postponing can only be done by users with edit capabilities.

Important: this plugin is created and tested for a one user installation of wordpress. Currently, there are no extensive safety measures for access rights etc.

ToDo

This is a collection of things to do, I will implement them as I see fit and as my time allows. If you want to help, please use github for conversation, issue tracking, or pull requests.
