First thing you need to do is install and activate the Drafts Scheduler plugin. Upon activation, you need to visit Posts » Draft Scheduler to set up scheduling.
You need to start by choosing a post type. The default option is posts, but you can choose pages, or any other custom post type. Next, you need to choose a schedule start date.
After that, you need to choose the post order. You can choose to randomly publish drafts, or you can publish them in a sequential order (oldest to newest).
Alternately, you can let the plugin randomly publish drafts and choose the number of posts you want to publish per day, week, or month.
Once you are done setting up the schedule, simply click on Schedule Drafts button.
Note: as soon as you hit the schedule drafts button, this plugin will set up the schedule for you.
You will now see an Undo button at the top of the draft scheduler page. Clicking undo will unset the schedule on any unpublished posts.
