Every once in awhile I like to throw in a tip for WordPress users who find their way here thanks to the diggIntegrator plugin. Spurred on by a post over at ProBlogger, I started looking for a method to post content to my blog at times when I couldn't otherwise be sitting at my PC. What I found, which is thankfully built into WordPress, is a method of writing a post and setting it to be published at a later time or date.
Let me stress again, you write the post and WordPress just waits to post it.
It's really simple too.
Depending on the version of WordPress you're using you'll want to move to "Advanced Mode" when writing your posts - in WordPress 2.0 this is the default setting.
When writing the actual post look for the "Post TimeStamp" box located on the right of the page. In this box you can change the date and time to reflect exactly when you want the post to be published. Just remember to click "Edit Timestamp."
That's it... nothing more to it.
As for when to post? You can check out the previously mentioned ProBlogger post for some tips.
