Yes, I must admit, this is a linkbait post. As you can see, this blog doesn’t have ads, I am not about the money, but I like the fame. So, here goes a very funny WordPress trick.
There is a vulnerability in WordPress that makes use of a known feature called “Post Timestamp”, meaning you can write a post and set a posting date into the future; the post will only be displayed at that time.
The vulnerability, first released by Michael Brooks, also reported a while ago on Bugtraq and today on XSS news, allows you to see “future posts”, posts that are not yet ready for posting. This means you can know the future of your preferred blog.
And it works. For instance, tomorrow, ShoeMoney is going to post about UFC 79 Nemesis Matt Hughes VS George St Pierre.
Update: Problogger is even funnier, with post for the 23th, 24th and the “Best of ProBlogger – 2007″ on the 25th. LOL.
