I've been doing some research into custom post statuses and scheduling posts and I had a question: I was wondering if it were possible to schedule a post to got from
future to a custom post status instead of
publish? Main reason I'm asking is that I have a custom post type called
stream and I've created a custom publish meta box that allows a user to select 2 post statuses:
offline. I'm trying to make it so that if I set a future date, the stream post will transition to
online instead of
publish as it normally would.
My train of thought would be to hijack via filter the post status to automatically transition to
online whenever WordPress tries to set it to
publish. Would that be a viable option?
