Display Time of Scheduled WordPress Posts with Scheduled Time Plugin

Display Time of Scheduled WordPress Posts with Scheduled Time Plugin

If you have bigger sites with multiple authors or even a smaller site but you like to schedule your posts in advance then you have probably realized that WordPress only tells you the day that you have scheduled and not the exact time. If you have multiple posts scheduled for the same day though, it can be useful to know the precise timing. Jeff at WPTavern talked about a quick way of doing this by hovering over the date with your mouse cursor which will display a tooltip with the time. Although this is a useful trick you can also use the Scheduled Time Plugin for WordPress.

In order to get started go ahead and download the plugin. Once you have activated it go and look at your posts display. If you have any posts scheduled for publishing you should see something like this:

As a cool little extra it displays published, scheduled, draft, pending review, and trashed posts in different colors.

    @wpbeginner Got one for you. Ever seen a ‘coming soon’ setup? Can you list titles of items marked pending or scheduled?

    • wpbeginner

      @rigger82 already got that covered long ago – http://t.co/HVxd9CGn <<

      • Rigger82

        @wpbeginner Great!

      • Rigger82

        @wpbeginner Question, is ‘future’ a custom one? I have ‘scheduled’ as a default.

        • wpbeginner

          @rigger82 future is the status WordPress assigns to posts that are scheduled.

    It’s good if you have multiple posts scheduled for the same day. But I’d rather use the default one in WordPress instead of installing another plugin. Besides, when you hover on the scheduled post in the WP admin, it can tell you the time.

    • wpbeginner

      @something4ken The plugin has no baring on your front-end load time. Its just to make your life easier as a person who manages the blog. The notion about having more plugins is bad is just not right.There is nothing wrong with hovering over to see the date. We suggest that as an option also. But if you are running a site with multiple posts scheduled for the same day (or even weeks in advance), that just won’t suffice.
