Scheduled Posts



  • A feature that I would love to see, not just for me but for my team, is the ability to post "early" and schedule a post to not appear until later. This could be posting a post or an entire thread, both would be ideal. Thread is the more important of the two. Would be extremely handy as we have people who post news items and things of interest and would like them to be spread out, not all posting all at once.

    I can see this being possible with a private category, and moving the post to a different category when the scheduled time hits.

    using some automation? That would be great.

    What we can do now is write if offline, have it ready and post manually when the time comes. But that is cumbersome enough that we don't bother and just post all at once, or miss posts.

    If you are willing to write them offline, you could use the write-api plugin, curl, and at to schedule posts instead.

    Yes, have definitely considered that.

    It may also be possible to set up a script running client-side that would submit a post at a certain time, though that would require you keep your tab open (but would probably be better than the CLI method).

    Making a little app that does it externally would only be so hard, too.
