    I am working on a site that needs to feature 40 posts, one post a day, ordered by the current date. All the posts will be previously published to the site. At the end of the 40 days the slider will begin to publish 5 random posts from the pool of 40. The slider will be in the between the header and nav. I am using iThemes Builder, Mason child theme.
    I can’t find a way to schedule the daily posts. The best I can find is to start and stop a slider using the expiration date. But I’m not sure this will be able to do what I want to do.
    And the client must launch on Wednesday, 16 June.
    Any ideas?




    Couldn’t quite figure out what exactly you are trying to do so I’ll try and break things up, please correct me where I’m wrong:

    1. You have 40 scheduled posts that will be published one post/day for the next 40 days.
    2. After all 40 posts are published, you want to randomly create slides from these posts and display them into a slider.

    If the above is correct, here goes:

    1. Your scheduled posts will be published using the schedule feature available in WordPress.
    2. To randomly publish posts from the 40 posts pool, you should put them into a category and create a slider that is ordered by random and pulls posts from that category.

    Please let me know if I got this right, thank you.
