How to Schedule a Post in WordPress

If you follow this carefully, it will work EVERY time.

  1. Write a post or draft.  Save Draft.
  2. Go to the “Publish” panel, click “edit” beside “Publish immediately”.
  3. Edit the date to any future day and time.
  4. Click “ok”.
  5. Click on “Schedule” or all you have done is scheduled a DRAFT to post, which won’t happen.  Once you click on “schedule” 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.
