You can schedule your posts to be published later by default in WordPress. People, on the other hand, frequently forget to schedule their posts. Isn’t it great if you could schedule your WordPress posts automatically? We’ll show you how to schedule social media sharing for your WordPress posts in this article.
Why Should WordPress Posts Be Scheduled Automatically?
Most bloggers plan to publish their posts at a specific time. You may, however, forget to schedule them from time to time.
Using an editorial calendar to see when your posts are scheduled to be published is one way to deal with this situation.
To manage our editorial workflow, we use Edit Flow on our websites.
But wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could simply set up an automated system to schedule blog posts for you? Consider using Buffer or HootSuite’s auto-scheduling features for your social media.
Publish to Schedule is a WordPress plugin that allows you to schedule your posts automatically.
Let’s take a look at how you can set it up and customize it.
Creating a Scheduled Publish
The first step is to download and activate the Publish to Schedule plugin. To configure plugin settings, go to Settings » Publish to Schedule after activation.
You must first decide on the number of posts to publish each day. For days when you don’t want to publish any posts, enter 0.
After that, you must select a time interval. This schedule is set to 24 hours by default, but you can change it to suit your needs.
The plugin will take care of the scheduling for you. You can see when your post is scheduled to go live or opt out of seeing it. Select all of the data or just work your magic in the data section.
Remember to click the Save All Changes button to save your changes.
Using the Publish to Schedule Plugin to Write Posts
Create a new WordPress post or edit one that has already been written. Under the publish metabox, you’ll notice some changes.
The most noticeable difference is that the publish button has been replaced with the Pub. to Schedule button.
When you press the publish to schedule button, if you selected to show information in the plugin settings, you will see when your post will be scheduled.
Remember that you can always override this schedule by creating your own, as you normally would.
That’s all there is to it; we hope this article has assisted you in automating your WordPress blog posts.
