You can set the terms of publishing your post in the Publish box.
For Status, Visibility, and Publish (immediately), click on the Edit link to reveal more options.
- Posts that are published and visible to everyone (including users who are logged out) are given the publish status.
- Drafts that are not yet published are assigned the draft status.
Visibility includes options for password-protecting a post or making it stay at the top of your blog indefinitely (sticky). The Password protected option allows you to set an arbitrary password for each post. The Private option hides the post from everyone except editors and administrators. Publish (immediately) allows you to set a future or past date and time, so you can schedule a post to be published in the future or backdate a post.
