Future timed posts

February 27th, 2014 at 7:01 pm by David Farrar

Someone mentioned to me a while back that they can see the titles (but not the content) of future timed posts from their user page, or similiar

As I sometimes time delay embargoed material, I want to close this “bug”. But having admin access myself, hard to see how it happens for others.

If anyone out there is able to see the title of the post timed for 10 pm today, can you comment below as to its title, and also post the URL you were on which allows you to see it.

    From the dashboard – whatever that is (had to go looking. The cat-related link didn’t open though so no content visible to me.

    Edit – not a cat but some dodgy goings on with a fox and friends

    At the top I have a menu (wordpress menu). I click kiwiblog, get a dropdown, in there I select dashboard. That takes me to: http://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/wp-admin/. On that page I can see a timed post that has a title with every letter in the English alphabet. :-)

    I’ve e-mailed you screenshot.

    There is a WP plugin which allows you to be more selective in what other user types can see in the admin panel. I’ve used it myself before for websites.

    What to see.

    Question:
    Why are you allowing people to login to your dashboard. I have a number of wordpress sites and no can login except the two with a password. I can’t be sure but think that you could leave yourself wide open to hacking. As I use a different set of templates I can’t tell you the answer on how to fix but try using the wordpress blog and ask the WP community.

    Maybe there is a better plugin available. Search thru the plugin data base and look at the various plugins. Lots there even if the database search is a bit crappy.

    What Viking2 said.

    There are numerous plugins that allow you to specify the landing page by role for example. Happy to give you the name of the plugins I use to avoid this.

    There’s a WordPress plugin called Advanced Access Manager that lets you lock this stuff down.
