Schedule posts for the future

How exactly do you schedule posts to go live in the future? Should they set the entry to "live" status and then set the entry date into the future? If so, that doesn't seem to be working. Thanks for your help!

    Hi Jacob,

    Unfortunately you cannot schedule the publishing of a BWF draft, this can only be done via the CP.

    This is a frequently requested feature and something we hope to make available in a release soon.

    Best wishes,

    Wow. That is a huge issue. I can't believe it doesn't offer that basic
    functionality. :-(

    Hi Jacob,

    I'm sorry this is a problem. We hope to be able to offer this soon but there are some technical challenges to overcome.

    There are other draft add-ons on the market, perhaps one of these will work for you.

    Best wishes,

    A big huge +1 for this! I have been asked this by so many clients.

    This is on our backlog and we have started the refactoring work required to make this possible.

    We are currently concentrating on EE2.6 and 2.7 compatibilities but once these issues are overcome we will try and make a version with this feature available.

    HI Rianne,

    We are hoping to have a new version available soon but I'm afraid the ability to schedule the publishing of drafts will not be part of this.

    This is a feature we would like to include but we have to look at the business case and unfortunately this is a complex feature.

    Best wishes,

    Any updates on this feature? Is there a git repo we could branch off to integrate this feature if we roll our own?

    Hi Jamie,

    Thanks for your message.

    This feature is still on the backlog but we haven't proceeded with it. When weighing up the demand with the complexity of implementing it the sums didn't add up.

    The BWF repo is not public so I can't give you access to this. you're probably best starting your own repo based on the latest version.

    Good luck with the dev. Let me know if you need any pointers.

    Best wishes,
