It's a website about hiking and to make things more user-friendly for the administrator, I renamed 'Posts' to 'Hikes' and wanted to use the publish date as the date for when the events are carded.
I'd originally found a way to make wp_query display links to the future posts like this:
// Create WP_Query
$args = array(
'category_name' => 'my-category',
'post_status' => 'future',
'orderby' => 'date',
'order' => 'ASC',
'posts_per_page' => 3
$my_query = new WP_Query($args);
Although I need to throw that out now that I have that plugin installed (linked above).
The 'post_status' on the database for scheduled posts is now no longer 'future', so I'll have to find some way to search records by the date instead.
