    Does it exist? :) Plugin that allows you to schedule your posts, set interval for posting (e.g., 1 post every 2 hours, 1 post every 4 hours, etc, so on)? I've tried to find it, but seems like nothing exists ;-/

    cron jobs through the cpanel is the only thing that I could think about right now.

    What delay would you like to add to each post?
    something like one post every 8 or 12 hours? or randomly in this interval ?

    Please help me view your needs, I might be thinking of something ;)

    Right you are. I want to parse content (or to search by keyword using coffeinated content), create posts and schedule them, for example, post 1 post every 2 hours randomly in this interval (2 hours). Pity, there is no such plugin, it would make the life easier :)
    Cron jobs and email posting is great, but if you want to run 100-200 blogs, it's better to have some tool to set and forget. Or almost forget :)

    I don't understand... doesn't coffeinated content as well as quite some other autoposting plugins (including mine ;) ) do exactly what you're asking for?

    rawasch, sorry to mislead you) I mean not "caffeinated content" (it was only an example), but if you have content (lots of posts, you can write them or rewrite, etc) it would be very convenient to schedule them using some plugin.

    If you have your own articles to post, I am using auto blog feeder, or drip feeder its called. You upload articles in folders of categories in your wp directory, and you schedule them in hours to post to your blog. Very easy to use.

    Are you adding the posts manually? If so, just set a future date on them. If you are using a plugin to auto post them, then either modify the plugin to set a future date on the post rather than the current date/time, write a plugin to filter save_post and modify the date before it goes in the database, or if you have an option to add all your posts as drafts, just write a script that checks your posts table every few hours for drafts, give them a random future date, and change their status to published.

    No, he wants this plugin to have the articles published in an autoblog.
