I (and others) have asked about this, but I'm still in the dark.
I'm hoping for a template modification or plug-in that will allow me to show future dated posts on my home page.
I tried Event Cal but it obliterated my site. I also tried the Future Post plug in but had no luck. (I think part of the issue could be that I have removed the perma-links from my site, as I don't want them for my posts).
This is the last major piece in the puzzle of this site I'm developing and I'm hoping someone can lend a hand or some code. I really appreciate it!
