[resolved] Changing Post Data with Function (3 posts)

    I would like to find out how I could change the post_status and post_date from inside a function (plugin).

    I have used wp_insert_post_data to edit the post_status and post_date before but now I need a scheduled event that will call a function and that function must change a posts status and date.

    Any idea how this could be done?

    You will want to research WordPress implementation of cron jobs. You can read how to schedule an event in the Codex.

    I ended up fixing my issue by using the $wpdb global and changing the post_status directly in the database. Thanks
