      Description

      It might be handy in a number of situations to prepare an announcement ahead of time and have Moodle make it available as scheduled. In other words, when preparing a new item (I think this feature should be restricted to news-type forum only), I should have a radio switch to post it immediately or at/after scheduled time.

          Assigning to me temporarily because Vy-Shane no longer works for Moodle HQ.

          Reassigning to Yu.

          This feature now has a help file displayperiod.html and a capability mod/forum:viewhiddentimedposts and just requires an activation GUI.

          Just discovered a forum_enabletimedposts setting in the Forum settings (via Administration > Modules > Activities). Thanks Yu!

          I assume this can be resolved then.

          Reopening issue due to following bug (in latest 1.8.2+):

          Users with the role of students can set a display period despite the cap mod/forum:viewhiddentimedposts not being set.

          Fix commited. People without mod/forum:viewhiddentimedposts are now prevented from seeing hiddentimedposts before the due date.
