Scheduled Post Shortcut


If you’re someone who blogs with any type of regularity, then you likely have a
number of posts sitting in the scheduled queue in your WordPress back-end.

The problem? It’s a little tedious to access them. You have to navigate through
the Posts menu, view All Posts then click on the Scheduled tab. And if
you’re an author who spends a lot of time in WordPress, then this can become
a bit of a chore.

Scheduled Post Shortcut aim to make this easier. The plugin introduces a new
Scheduled menu item under the Posts menu that will take you directly to the
Scheduled Posts page so that you can manage your content.

This is yet another plugin that aims to streamline your blogging process. Should
you opt to uninstall this plugin, then no data will be lost or affected.


Thank you for choosing Pressware’s plugins to streamline and improve

Running the Tests

Scheduled Post Shortcuts includes a server-side test suite that verifies the
plugin’s functionality works as expected. In order to use these tests, your
development environment should include:

Once the tools are installed, run the following commands from within the root
directory of the plugin:

  1. $ composer update
  2. $ wp scaffold plugin-tests scheduled-post-shortcut
  3. $ cd $(wp plugin path scheduled-post-shortcut --dir)
  4. $ bash bin/ wordpress_test root root localhost latest
  5. $ vendor/bin/phpunit

This will make sure that PHPUnit, WP-CLI, and the necessary scaffolding is set
up and the tests are executed against the plugin without interfering with your
installation of WordPress.
