How to delay/change the time email sent to subscribers w/new post

  1. Hi! I was wondering how I can change the time (delay it a few hours) that the email is sent subscribers after I post new material. I have searched all around settings and have come up with nothing.

    Right now if I hit publish, the email is sent immediately-- which doesn't allow for error or mistake. If I had a delay, I could remove/edit the post before it shows up in my loyal followers inboxes. Please help? Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is www.7daystime.com.

  2. The blog you specified at http://www.7daystime.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

  3. If your question pertains to a free hosted WordPress.com blog like the one linked to your username then what you ask for is not possible. The post is published and instantly in the RSS Feed and sent to email subscribers and you cannot change that. Are you not aware of the "preview" setting? It's available on all draft posts and pages.

  4. If you are talking about the self-hosted site, and are using Jetpack, then your subscribers are in control of when and how they receive your post notifications.

    Readers can manage and view all of the blogs and comment threads they are following on their Read Blogs page (if they have a WordPress.com account), or at subscribe.wordpress.com (if they don’t have any account but are following WordPress.com blogs).
