You generally write your article and publish its right off, or if you write more than 3,4 posts a Day in this case you either schedule them or save it to the Draft. And publish it on the right time.
Why not use those completed or scheduled posts to shows as upcoming posts on your website. This lets the visitors know What is now coming next.
In this article, I will talk about it How you can show upcoming posts in your WordPress site.
For this, I am using a SOUP – Show off Upcoming Posts Plugin which lists your future posts on the website. It uses your scheduled posts for listing. It is very simple to setup and does its job very well.
I am assuming that you have scheduled your some of the completed posts if you don’t know how to do it you can check my earlier post – How to Schedule Posts in WordPress without plugin.
1. Install and Activation
First, you need to install and activate the SOUP – Show off Upcoming Posts Plugin. After activation goes to Widget from Appearance here, you see a new Upcoming Post widget in Available Widgets section.
2. Set up
Add the widget to your Sidebar.
The widget allows you to set the Title of Widget, the number of posts display in the widget. You can also show date and RSS link for subscribing, sort order. Set message to display when there is no future posts and link for subscribing to Newsletter.
And click on Save.
Visit your website for seeing the changes.
