Plugin / Automatic Post Publishing Scheduler

Will Brubaker



This plugin allows you to gain very precise control over when posts are published to your site.


  1. Allows the creation of any number of time slots for post publishing
  2. Admin users are able to allow or disallow publishing on any given day(s) of the week through a simple interface
  3. Further control is allowed by specifying dates that will be explicitly allowed (or disallowed) for publishing, thereby overriding the weekday setting – as an example, if your publishing schedule allows for publishing on Tuesday, but a major holiday falls on Tuesday and you don\’t want publishing to take place on that particular Tuesday, simply specify it in the easy-to-use interface.
  4. Any admin/editor user can publish a post ‘NOW’ by clicking the “publish now” link in the posts screen.
  5. Any admin/editor user can alter the scheduled date by using the quick-edit screen.
  6. Normal users (authors, etc) can alter the scheduled time/date of their posts, but the defined time slots will still be respected.
