TIP:  You can , add images and videos to your posts but do these before you hit the Scheduler button or you will have to reset it again.

Before you start to scream for help as you don’t know where all your posts have gone – all Scheduled posts are listed in the Activity Log (found under the “Edit Page” button in the Admin Panel).
