Publishing options appear on the add and edit posts or pages. See Working with Pages or Working with Posts for details about creating posts and pages.
Each post or page has a number of options before you publish. You can change the status (i.e., as Draft or Pending Review), change the visibility (i.e., the privacy settings) or the publish date. If desired, posts and pages can be published immediately or set to publish on a future date.
Status: A post's status is automatically Draft until changed. Click Edit to the right of Status and select your option from the drop-down menu. Then, click OK.
Visibility: By default, the visibility is set to Public. You can change your visibility to private or password protected at any time.
Publish date: You can choose to publish your post immediately, or schedule your post for a later date and time. If you choose a future date or time to publish a post, the Publish button will changed to Schedule.
By default, posts will publish immediately. If you are happy with your post and would like accept the defaults, click Publish.
