Time Release

Queue up posts to be displayed after a period of inactivity. If you don't post during that period, the queued posts are published.


For more detailed instructions, see the author's page.

To mark a post as Time Release

  1. Create a new post,
  2. On the post edit page, check the box “Queue post for time release” in the “Time Release” sidebar widget,
  3. Save the post as a draft.

Find Time Release posts

You can see your Time Release posts by going to the “Edit Posts” page of your blog. You’ll see a new column with a pill icon for a title. All Time Release posts have a little pill. Time Release posts that haven’t been published yet show a count to the number of days before the post is published.

Control when Time Release posts are published

Expand the "Settings" box in the administrative pages, and click on "Time Release". The settings page has controls for email notifications and the amount of time that must elapse before a queued post is published.

Usage notes

  1. Time Release publishes your queued posts after n days of inactivity. If you create a new Time Release post, and it has been more than n days since your last post, the post will appear within a day.
  2. Time Release publishes one post at a time.
  3. Time Release checks your inactivity twice daily. It sets the publication time to the time that it runs at.
