post in advance

    Is it possible to post in advance? I’ve done it twice. Once it worked, once it didn’t. I changed the time and date settings into the future, but then t only worked one time. Any reason why? I need to set up a few days of posts and know that they will come on.



    I have started to set the post stamps in advance when I have a burst of topics to write about. Each time they have worked as expected.

    If you can document the particular circumstances of the post that did not work, then it may be better to send specifics to support.

    AFAIK, there is no limit to the number of posts that you can publish in advance, but sometimes you can trip up by not remembering that the set time may not be your local time.

    Depending on the frequency of your articles, I would set them all to some future date/time and monitor. If they work they work, if they don’t, try to record accurately what you did so that support can reproduce the problem or track it down.



    One thing I have noticed is that if you post in advance, the posts will NOT display in tag pages or Most Recently Updated until you edit them. I just edited one that went up last night, and poof! There it is now.
