Restrict Publish

Restrict Publish allows administrators to the restrict the dates on which other users can publish.

For restricted users the plugin replaces the WordPress dropdowns and input boxes for date selection with the jQuery UI datepicker. This datepicker will have the ‘forbidden’ dates disabled.

If the user does try to publish (or schedule) on a ‘forbidden’ date, the post will be returned to draft status and an appropriate error message displayed.
