WP Scheduled Posts Pro Is a well designed plugin that allows you to easily schedule content for publication on your WordPress website. If you're somebody who writes a lot of blog posts in one go or purchases content, scheduling your posts automatically might be a great idea. This plugin allows you to set a maximum number of posts that can be published on one day, and will automatically schedule them for you. For example, you can set a limit of one post per day on your blog post. If you schedule 2 posts on one day, it will automatically publish it on an available day at an available time period you can visually manage and edit your schedule via a calendar view.

In Depth Thoughts On WP Scheduled Posts

The use cases for this plugin are fairly straight forward. if you have a blog where you would like to schedule posts to publish at certain days and intervals, then this is the plugin for you. For example, if you're somebody who writes a ton of blog posts in one go, or purchases content (so you get 20 individual blog posts on delivery) you can use this tool to fine-tune when each individual post will be published. You can also use this tool to automatically space out your content publication.

WordPress comes with a scheduling function, but there's no automatic aspect to it, and if you're publishing 20 blog posts at one time, scheduling will probably take you around 30 minutes. This tool makes the entire process of scheduling content automatic and gives you a calendar view of when each individual blog post will be published.

If you have a multi author blog website will you get many submissions per day, but only want to publish 3 on a single day, you can use this plugin to easily do that. For example, so you get 6 submissions On Monday, but you only want to publish 3. you can use this plugin to automatically schedule three posts to publish on Monday, and then publish three posts on following days where there is availability.

Another example would be where you purchase content. So you just spent a lot of money and ended up with 365 blog posts. You can use this tool to only publish one blog post per day, and automatically schedule the blog post to publish anytime between 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM. You can upload and schedule each blog post automatically, and then your blog will automatically publish these posts when scheduled. In this example, the blog would publish one post per day for 365 days.

We ended up using this plugin in our personal websites because we create a lot of content on Mondays and Tuesdays. However, we want to automatically schedule our content to be published throughout the week. We use this tool to automatically schedule content unavailable days. This saves us a lot of time when it comes to scheduling, as we know we will only be publishing two blog posts per day.

If you are familiar with the Buffer application , which is used for social media scheduling, there's a function called the queue. It allows you to publish your social media post on the first available time slot. There are four available time slots per day. If three of them are filled up, Buffer will automatically schedule your post on the 4th slot. This plugin allows you to do something similar to the Buffer feature.

Auto Scheduler

The main functionality of this plugin is called the auto scheduler. It enables you to publish post randomly within your given time interval throughout the week. You are able to set the number of posts that you want to schedule for each day throughout the week. For example, you could post one post on Monday, zero on Monday, and four on Tuesday period you can specify the time interval in which you want to have your post randomly scheduled. In our use case, we post one post per day, except on Wednesdays and Fridays, where we post 2 posts per day.

Our time interval starts at 6:00 AM Eastern Time, and ends at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

If you don't want to use the auto scheduler, you can also incorporate a manual scheduler where you get absolute control over your time settings. For example, you can set a blog post to automatically publish itself on Saturday at 6:14 AM.

When your posts are submitted, and scheduled, you can set up email notifications to notify the respective author of their status. For example, you can have the tool automatically send them an email notification when the post is scheduled, rejected, or published. This is great for a multi author blog website.

Social Scheduling

The tool also has a social tool that it comes packaged with. You can configure this plugin to share your blog posts automatically to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. When the post is automatically published, so is the social media post. You can also use this tool within individual blog posts that are already published on the website to share them to social media. What this allows you to do is go back to posts that were published months or even years ago, and renew your readers interest in them by sharing them to your social media channels. It's very simple to do this, all you need to do is go to a sidebar in Gutenberg and click the publish to [media network] button.

You can also configure how the content is displayed in the social media post. These are called social templates, and you configure the tweet, Facebook status, LinkedIn status, and Pinterest pin settings. For example, the default Twitter tweet template setting is {title}{content}{url}{tags}, However you can easily change this around to match what you want.

Calendar Interface

Easily the best feature of this plugin is the calendar interface. Once you've scheduled your blog post, you can view it on the calendar interface, and if you decide that you want to move the publication of the blog post to another day all you need to do is drag and drop. This will allow you to see if you're publishing too much content on an individual day. For example, say you're publishing three blog posts on a Tuesday, but zero on a Thursday. You can drag and drop one of the blog posts from the Tuesday scheduling date to the Thursday scheduling date, and the tool will automatically update the time and date of publication.

Conclusion

This is a great tool to schedule posts, visually identify when they're going to go live, and automate this process. It saves us a lot of time because we don't need to think about the schedule of our posts, all we need to do is check off the schedule on this specific date button, and click the schedule button. Everything is done automatically, and we can use the calendar to fine tune our publication schedule as we want.

If you're looking for a way to automatically schedule large amounts of content , then this is the plugin for you. The development team behind this is the same team behind a lot of other powerful and well designed plugins, and the support is great.

However, due to the simplicity of the plugin, great design of the back end, and easy to use interfaces, you probably won't be needing to access the support.
