A publish date allows you to set a future post date for your admin blog articles. Some users prefer to add multiple articles to their blog in one session, but do not want the articles to get published at the same time, nor do they want to log back in to "Publish" an article and make it live on their website.
With the "Publish Date" functionality website admins can now set the date they wish articles to be published on their website.
Important: This functionality is exclusively supported for the "Admin Blog" feature (the feature which uses the "Feature - Blog Articles" form). The primary reason this is not available to the member blog feature is that your members would be able to cheat the system and re-publish articles allowing their articles to always show first on your website.
