Sometimes you just have so much on your mind that you might find yourself forgetting to add post thumbnails, insert a signature, or just modify your post somehow. Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a way you can set pre-publish reminders for WordPress posts? Well in this article, we will show you how to add a list of pre-publish reminders for your WordPress posts in the admin panel. This neat feature can be great for multi-author blogs as well as single-authored blogs. This would keep you from worrying about whether you forgot anything when you pressed “publish”.
First thing you need to do is install and activate the Pre-Publish Reminders Plugin for WordPress. Once you have activated it you can add reminders by going to “tools” and selecting “publishing reminders” (Tools » Publishing Reminders). On this screen you have the option of selecting background colors, emphasis, and more. This way your reminders will catch your attention.
Once you have added your reminder, next time you go to add or edit a post there will be a list of reminders in your admin panel. Move them around so that they are somewhere you can easily see them.
