This module allows content to be published and unpublished on specified dates.

Dates can be entered either as plain text or using a HTML Datetime field.

NOTE: A simplified version of the scheduled publishing functionality is now
available in Backdrop core. If that is all you need, you may not need this
module. It might get confusing to try to use both at once.


Configuration and Usage

    set when the content they create is to be (un)published.
  • Checkboxes are provided when configuring content types, allowing you to
    enable scheduled publishing and/or unpublishing for that content type:

scheduled content.
