Timed Posts

All,
I just migrated my blog on EBE and it is really, really cool. Is there a way to have timed posts in the future? What I sometimes do is prepare a post but do not want it to be published until a certain date and time.
Is there a way to do this? Basically it would mean that posts are not seen on the main page if PublishedData is bigger than the actual date
Thank you

Roger,

The CKS:EBE fully supports all of SharePoints features and so you can create a post & just not approve it until the appropriate time. This won't be automatic, but at least you can get the post "ready".

It would also be possible to achieve what you want by modifying the XSL. You could check the date in the XSL and not display the ones in the furture.

You could also add new new column...PublishDate...and modify the queries (or XSL) to take this into account.

The only problem I see is the RSS, but if you can write some code you can get around that too.
