How does pausing a Content Category affect your schedule?
When you pause a Category, it doesn't disappear from your schedule.
- Instead, the posting times when the Category is scheduled will be skipped, until the Category gets reactivated.
- In your View Your Next Posts tab, you'll notice that any Category that is paused will still show up in your schedule (for you to know exactly what posting times are getting skipped).
When should I pause a Content Category?
You can pause a Category when you want to stop publishing something short-term, without having to modify your current schedule to accommodate that.
E.g., If something happens globally, and your current schedule posts are not appropriate anymore, you can pause the Category and wait until the dust settles.
