Hello and welcome to the WordPress plugin guide for Auto Post Scheduler, which is a plugin that schedules auto post checks to publish new posts and/or recycle old posts automatically.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) On the Dashboard of your website, scroll down the left-hand sidebar and click on Plugins


Step 3) From the Installed Plugins page, click on Add New at the top of the page. Alternatively, click on Add New from the dropdown menu under Plugins on the sidebar.


Step 4) On the Add Plugins page, type in the name of your plugin in the search box on the right hand side, at the top of the page.


Step 5) From the Search Results page, scroll down to your chosen plugin and click the button marked Install Now. If you would like to learn more about your plugin, click the blue link marked More Details


Step 6) The plugin is now installed and unpacked into your website. The last thing to do now is click Activate Plugin


Step 7) Once activated, you will be redirected to the Installed Plugins page. From here, you can read all the info about your plugins, and deactivate and delete it if you no longer need it.


Step 8) From your Admin Panel, click on Settings >> Auto Post Scheduler.


Step 9) At the top of the page, you will see that the current status of the plugin is Disabled. To enable the plugin, click on the button marked Enable Auto Post Scheduler.


Step 10) The options for the Auto Post Scheduler include setting the time range for each auto post check. You can set it in seconds, hours and days. You can also set a time delay for each auto post check, and check a box that will reset the scheduler if posts are published manually or by other plugins.


Step 11) The next step is to set limits for the auto post scheduler. These include post types and categories. You can also limit the plugin to work on set days, and exclude certain dates, e.g. Christmas Day, Bank Holidays, etc.


Step 12) The next options are related to eligible posts and recycling posts. You can set the plugin so that it checks posts that are set as Draft, Pending and Publish. If these are checked, these post types will be checked for posting. If there are no eligible posts, old posts will be recycled if the Recycle Posts Mode option is checked. You can then set a minimum recycle age for your old posts.


Step 13) The Log File for the plugin is present at the bottom of the page, and you can display extra debug information to the log file by checking the box underneath. You can clear the log file by hitting the button at the bottom of the page.

    Thank you for your detailed article. This really looks like a handy plugin.

    What I would like to do is to recycle all old posts over 90 days old and post the recycled post to my blog once a week. How do I set this up with your plugin?
