WordPress has a really cool (hidden) feature that you can use for planning (program) posting articles to your WordPress blog. This is a very useful feature that many newbie bloggers don't know about.

In this article, we will show you how to schedule and automate the publication of your articles on WordPress.

But, if you've never installed WordPress discover How to Install a WordPress Blog in 7 Steps et How to search, install and activate a WordPress theme on your blog 

But back to why we are here.

Why plan to publish articles?

In a specific day at a specific time each website reaches its highest peak in number of visitors. But, if you live in a time zone other than that of your readers, then this can become an issue.

Imagine that the hour when you reach the peak of the number of visitors is 3 am; at the moment you agree with me that planning the publication of your posts becomes imperative.

Other situation: is if you go on holiday, and you do not want to give up your blog.

How to overcome this difficulty?

It's simple: schedule the publication of your articles in advance. This feature allows you to continue blogging and generate income even when you are not around. You can prepare them a week or months in advance and WordPress will take care of the rest.

How to plan a Post in WordPress?

Once you have written your article, before you publish it, look at the option just above the button Publish which reads "Publish now".

Follow the steps above and you can then program your articles in WordPress.

Some users prefer a fairly reasonable time. So if you're writing an article at 19:30 PM, schedule it for your users to read in the morning while having their coffee. Your visitors, as well as the search engines, must predict the time when your next article will be published.

  1. Hello,

    thank you for your article which allowed me to see the scheduling feature that i hadn't noticed until then.

    However I have a size problem, indeed I am using W3 Total Cache, and when I schedule an article it tells me that it is published on the scheduled date and time, BUT if I do not empty the cache the article does not appear on the site.

    Do you have a solution for me? Because, there, I block and I wonder what the planning is for if I am forced to act by emptying the cache.

    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards.

  2. I have become a faithful reader of your articles because they are relevant in clear language and strong interesting

    Good continuation,

    cordialement,
