Hi there,

Does anyone know if there is a way to schedule a blog post for future release at a specific date and time?  I can't see that it's supported out of the box. Has anyone done this with a custom module or anything?

Thanks in advance...

To the top right of the post editor page you'll see a "Set Publish Date" just below the Author dropdown.  Click on "Manual" and enter a date.

If CodePlex had a real forums app I could include a screenshot, but you should see it easily.

Good luck,

Hi Dave,


Yes, I've already seen that, but all that does is set the displayed publish date - it doesnt actually hold it from being published as soon as you save the post.
