Why do I need to schedule my posts?

You may want to avoid having new content publish during times of low user engagement, such as overnight or weekends. The plugin will ensure your editorial calendar is consistent and predictable.

How are publish dates and times determined?

When a new post is saved, the plugin will check all previously scheduled posts against the publication schedule and update the new post’s publish date to the next available time slot.

Can I set a specific publish date and time?

Yes! Admins and Editors can use the ‘Publish Now’ to publish a post immediately, or manually override the scheduled date on the Post and Quick Edit screens. Authors do not have the ability to set a custom date.

What happens to a time slot if I manually publish (or override) a scheduled post?

The time slot that the post was originally scheduled for is freed and becomes available for the next new post. Posts already scheduled will not be modified.
