Un-scheduling a Post

If you’ve scheduled a post to be published in the future, but changed your mind and want to publish it immediately, head back to the Edit Post page for your scheduled post.

In the Publish module, click on the “Edit” link next to the date for which you’ve scheduled your post.

Then, enter today’s date and time as your scheduled post time and click on “Ok.” When finished, click on the “Schedule” button and your post will be published immediately.
