How to Publish a WordPress Post at a Scheduled Time?

WordPress allows publishing your posts at your scheduled time; however, you will find this feature slightly hidden from plain sight. If the user is a beginner, they may not have been aware of this feature. You can write your post at any time, and using the WordPress schedule option, you can easily publish it at a specific time, i.e., on the date and time of your choice.

Why Should I Use Scheduled Posts in WordPress?

If you publish your post on a date and time when your website is at its peak of users, you can take advantage of peak traffic hours to leverage that traffic and increase page views. In addition, you can utilize the scheduled post option if your users are in a different time zone. For example, the peak hours on your website are between 12:00 AM to 03:00 AM; scheduling posts will be helpful in this case.
