Yesterday I showed you an Easy way to Schedule a future post in WordPress, and although I’m sure that you are busily creating posts for the next 4 years, I thought I would share this with you.
The problem I have with future posts is that I want to link to them in other future posts. This is especially helpful if you are writing a series of posts and want to point your readers to the first post in the series.
Well, I figured out that doing this is almost as easy as automatically posting in the future is.
Step 1: In another browser window or tab, go into your WordPress site Administration, and click on Manage.
Step 2: Click on the “view” option next to the post you want to link to.
Step 3: Copy the URL.
Didn’t I say that it was simple?
One warning though, if you are using the “Date and Name based” option for your URLs, and you change the date of the post, then the link will be broken.
