My users aren't able to see scheduled posts. Instead they get shown a 404 error. I'd like to show scheduled posts as well.

    Please elaborate on your question, this way it's poor standard - see: Help: How to Ask. Like I mentioned on your other question wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/117240/… you are maybe not getting the concept of scheduled posts - they will be visible after the scheduling time, because then they will be published. – Nicolai Oct 9 '13 at 11:06

    I suspect that you are trying to use scheduled posts for something they are not meant for. Please explain the actual problem/project that you are working on. – s_ha_dum Oct 9 '13 at 14:50

If you want to display the scheduled posts in the main wordpress loop you can use 'post_status' => 'future' as an argument for the array. This will now show your scheduled posts for all users. It's pretty handy for things like event listings.

However there is a problem with this and I believe this is what your problem may be. When any user with a role set lower than editor, or a non-user, tries to access that post on it's individual page you will not have the rights to view it, and it throws up a 404.

Not sure why this is and why admins and editors can see it.

If you place this code in your functions.php file it should get it working for everyone.

    /* Show future posts */
function show_future_posts($posts)
   global $wp_query, $wpdb;
   if(is_single() && $wp_query->post_count == 0)
      $posts = $wpdb->get_results($wp_query->request);
   return $posts;
add_filter('the_posts', 'show_future_posts');

I found it from this post on Wordpress
