Scheduled Blocks


Schedule when your blocks should go live (and when they should stop being live)


  1. Copy this directory to your plugins directory
  2. Find Scheduled Blocks in your wp-admin/plugins.php page
  3. Click activate
  4. Now, whenever you select a block, you will see 'Block Scheduling'
  5. Click in either (or both) of the Start/End date fields and choose your desired date/time.
  6. You will be able to see which blocks are scheduled as a small date/time icon is presented next to them in the main editor window.


Version 0.6.0 - Removed requirement for the Gutenberg plugin as Scheduled Blocks now relies on internal WP_Block_Parser()

Version 0.5.0 - Support for Gutenberg 4.4.

Version 0.4.0 - First true public release after some tidying up.

Version 0.3.0 - Removed Licensing entirely, this should be open source and will be - First dev/public version after I sent out a tweet and more people were interested than I thought. Mild panic ensued.

Version 0.2.5 - Added subtle icon to scheduled blocks shown in the editor window - Changed to the update/license stuff only loading in the admin

Version 0.2.4 - Added thank-yous.txt file as a way of giving credit to the folks who make this possible.

Version 0.2.3 - Added software licensing - Added GPL license - Added this readme
