The Power of the Publishing Panel

The power of the publishing panel inside the wordpress content management system is often an overlooked gem of your brand’s or businesses workflow.  I this unobtrusive little space you’ll find tools to save your work as a draft, something I encourage you to do often, as well as access the revisions of those saves.

The real publication power comes into play once you hit the scheduling options.  Being able to schedule my posts has been a valuable ability over the years because the moments I spend writing aren’t always the best moments to publish that material, let’s say it’s really late at night.

I want that post to go up on my website and get distributed to social networks like facebook and twitter at a time when I know they’re most likely to be seen.  I always end up scheduling the post, even if it’s just for the next day.

Just Save As Draft

Use The Publish Button Carefully! If you’ve got social sharing options configured like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or LinkedIn, the post will be broadcast to all your social channels.

It’s best to just save your post as a draft until you’ve got it perfect for publication. [/box]
