I’m not sure if Darren will cover this in this particular 31 days, but it is a great tool to keep the blog rolling, even when you’re not. So much. Rolling. And I get a lot of questions about this not working in wordpress. Also I receive comments from people finding that it is a bit “flakey”; meaning one day it will publish on time, and the next time, it won’t publish anything. This is user-error probably just because you forgot to click on “Publish”.
If you follow this carefully, it will work EVERY time.
- Write a post or draft. Save Draft.
- Go to the “Publish” panel, click “edit” beside “Publish immediately”.
- Edit the date to your chosen publish day and time.
- Click “ok”.
- Click on “PUBLISH” or all you have done is scheduled a DRAFT to post, which won’t happen. Once you click on “publish” your tummy will get all in knots, (is that just me?) but don’t worry – it WON’T publish until your scheduled date and time.
Be sure to let me know if there are things that you need covered in regards to your wordpress blog, and how to use it. I’ll do my best to cover it in a future post.
