Why Should WordPress Posts Be Auto-Scheduled?

Most bloggers set a specific time for the publication of their posts. But occasionally you might overlook scheduling them.

Utilizing an editorial calendar that shows you when your posts are scheduled to go live is one method to handle this scenario.

To control the editorial workflow on our websites, we use Edit Flow.

However, wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could build up an automated system that would schedule blog entries for you? Consider using an auto-scheduling function from Buffer or HootSuite for your social media.

A WordPress plugin called Publish to Schedule allows you to automatically schedule your content.

Let’s look at how to configure and set it up.

Publish to Schedule setup

The Publish to Schedule plugin needs to be installed and activated first. To set up plugin settings after activation, navigate to Settings » Publish to Schedule.

Decide which days and how many posts to publish.

You must first decide how many posts you will publish each day. When you don’t wish to publish any entries that day, enter 0.

The next step is to select the time interval. This schedule’s default setting of 24 hours can be changed to suit your needs.

The scheduling will be done automatically by the plugin. You have the option of choosing whether to view the scheduled appearance date for your post or not. Select every piece of information or just use the information section’s magic.

Next to the publish button, select how much information you want to see.

To save your options, don’t forget to click the Save All Changes button.

Using the Publish to Schedule Plugin to Create Posts

Edit a current document or start a new WordPress post. The publish metabox has undergone various changes.

Just keep in mind that you can always define your own timetable and override the current one.

We sincerely hope that this article enabled you to automatically schedule WordPress blog entries.
