Display upcoming posts in WordPress

Some of us often schedule some post for upcoming days. This is more occurred in magazine style blogs.

If our clients have such a nature, we can create an upcoming posts list in there page or sidebar. This will make readers look forward to what they are going to publish in a few days and can help to get new RSS subscribers.

<div id="future_posts">
	<div id="future_posts_header"><p>Future Posts</p></div>
	<?php query_posts('showposts=10&post_status=future'); ?>
	<?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
		<div >
			<p class><b><?php the_title(); ?></b><?php edit_post_link('e',' (',')'); ?><br />
			<span class="datetime"><?php the_time('j. F Y'); ?></span></p>
	<?php endwhile; else: ?><p>No future posts scheduled.</p><?php endif; ?>

We just use WordPress query_posts() function at here. In this code snippet, this function retrieve 10 posts with the post status future. If this query can’t find any future posts, it return an error message.
