One of the most useful content management features in Joomla is the "Start Publishing" option. This tool allows you to schedule publishing your Joomla article on a later date. It also allows you to set the article creation date to a later date.
The start publishing date allows us to decide the future date when an existing article will be published automatically. This allows you to create time-sensitive content before you need it, and publish it automatically when it is considered the right time to publish it.
Why schedule Joomla Articles?
In a nutshell, scheduling Joomla Articles can help your business:
- Save time creating individual articles
