Site Health Status

One of the first things you see when you log into your website’s dashboard is the WordPress “Site Health Status” widget. Sometimes the status is “good” with a green circle; often it is “Should be improved” with a yellow circle. Rarely, it will be a red circle.

Here is what you need to know, actions you should take, and things you can ignore relating to your site’s health status.

Setting a Future Action on a Post

Setting a future action with the PublishPress Future plugin is an easy way to automatically schedule changes to a published post or page in WordPress.

When creating or editing a post or page, you can use the plugin to change the status at a given date and time in the future.

Post Quick Edit and Bulk Actions Edit

“Quick Edit” and “Bulk Actions” on posts allow you to make changes to the status, categories, date/time a post was published, or set a future action on one or multiple posts without having to open each one to edit.
