WordPress lacks a feature to schedule content updates. Keeping your posts and pages up to date manually can often waste your precious time, especially when you already know you’ll soon have to update the same page again.
- Promotions: Automatically publish versions of your pages that contain temporary promotions and schedule content updates where these promotions are removed as soon as they ended.
- Events: Schedule content updates for pages that list events. Automatically publish an updated version of the page after an event ended.
