I need to do it fairly soon on a couple of posts. Thanks. The blog I need help with is artyoldbird.com.

You get a drop down box, and can change that to Draft, Pending review, or leave it as scheduled. July 29, 2012 at 6:17 pm #962330 sensuousinkspillerMember Oops – make sure you click on “OK” to save the changes. :-) July 29, 2012 at 6:31 pm #962333 absurdoldbirdMember Okay thanks. Does just changing it to ‘draft’ work? Only it still shows the scheduled time and date! July 29, 2012 at 6:32 pm #962334 thegiddygoatMember You will then have to edit it and change the date and time. July 29, 2012 at 11:45 pm #962407 absurdoldbirdMember Yeah, but what I want to know is – suppose I just want to take it out of scheduling altogether, make it draft again without a specific date, so that I can work on it some more. Is that possible? It’s crazy, I’ve blogged here for two years (not on my current blog) and have helped loads of people on the forums but I just can’t get my head around this!

I’ll look at this again tomorrow as it’s late and nothing’s sinking in at the moment. July 30, 2012 at 11:16 am #962430 absurdoldbirdMember Thanks everyone. It sorta makes sense. I’ll mark this resolved now. Author Posts The topic ‘How does one unschedule a post?’ is closed to new replies.
