Default Post Date and Time

Default Post Date and Time | Greg Ross


When you create a new post in WordPress, the publish date is set to ‘immediately’, this plugin allows you more control over this behaviour and set a date or time of your choosing.

For example, you can choose to have new posts scheduled for:

  • first Tuesday of next month at 5:30pm
  • next Monday at 09:00
  • Friday at 19:30

Any format that PHP’s (strtotime)[] function can understand can be used.

Settings are on a per user basis, just go to your profile page!

This code is released under the GPL v2, see license.txt for details.


  1. Extract the archive file into your plugins directory in the default-post-datetime folder.
  2. Activate the plugin in the Plugin options.
  3. Customize the settings from the the Your Profile page, if desired.
