How to Schedule Revisions

PublishPress Revisions allows you to schedule revisions to be automatically published in the future.

After installing PublishPress Revisions, go to Revisions > Settings and make sure the “Scheduled Revisions” box is checked.

Here’s how to create a scheduled revision:

  • Go to the main “Posts” area in WordPress.
  • Edit a Post that has the “Published” status.
  • Make some changes to the main content area.
  • In the right sidebar, find the “Publish” date, as in the image below:
  • Change this option to a date in the future. This is going to be when your scheduled revision goes live.
  • If you change the date to the future, the “Update” button will change to “Schedule Revision”.
  • You will now see the message, “Your modification was saved as a Scheduled Revision” as in the image below.
  • Click the “View Revision Queue” link.

On the “Revision Queue” screen and you’ll see your scheduled revision:

If you click the “Preview” link on the “Revision Queue”, you will see a moderation toolbar. If this toolbar has a grey color, the revision is scheduled. You will also see the message, “This is a Scheduled Revision”.
