This wish is open

Description

The ability to future date, or schedule posts for later is pretty useful for any blogging platform. The idea is that you're limited to particular times for writing, but your readers like to see new content spread across the day (or week or month, or whatever) instead of getting blurted out all at once and then having the blog go silent for an extended period of time. You make the post, save it, put a date and time on it, and then blogging software posts it when you request without any further action on your part.

I'd imagine it being implemented by the user initially creating the page in a scheduling category, then at the assigned time, the system automagically creates a new page in the specified blogging category and copies the contents to the new page, and then deletes the scheduling page. That, rather than renaming the page so that the page creation date doesn't throw readers off.

To be added later. I'm pretty sure I've read some before.
