The MOD was originally named "Future Posts MOD", but it has been renamed.
Modification Description: Allows users with the proper permissions to compose a new topic and specify a date/time in the future that the topic will be posted (i.e. made publicly viewable) right from the posting page. The topic will not be viewable to the public until that scheduled time. Moderators and Administrators with the proper permissions can view topics that are set to be posted in the future in their respective forums. All permissions for using the future post feature and for viewing future topics can be set in the ACP for each individual forum/category on your board.
Modification Version: 0.0.2
Modification Download: NOTICE: This is a Beta, and it should only be used in a testing environment.

Additional Information (Updated - July 21, 2010)
I plan on submitting this to the Customisations Database as version 1.0.0 in about a week or so, so please download this Beta, test it, and report any bugs or issues you may find. There may be an issue where a forum with a future post in it remains marked as read even though every other current post has been viewed. In this case, just click "Mark topics read" for that forum and the issue will be fixed. If you find any bugs with this MOD, please report them in this topic. Thank you.
