Schedule a Post on Child Sites

Scheduling post on Child Sites is almost the same as the publishing it. The only difference is before clicking the Publish button (step 10 from the previous tutorial) is setting it to Scheduled status and setting the time. To do this,

  1. Follow steps 1 to 9 from the tutorial above
  2. In the Publish metaboxSet Schedule Settings
    1. Locate the Publish Immediately option and click the Edit link
    2. Set the wanted Date and Time
    3. Click OK
  3. Click the Schedule button

Important Notes

The Post Preview action is not available in the MainWP Dashboard. Since the post will look different on each child site, previewing it on the Dashboard site doesn’t help much.
