WordPress Scheduled Posting Problems: Are You Making My Mistake?

Well, I wasted about 5 hours of research and 2 days of stress over the concept of my scheduled posts not publishing on my blog (please don’t laugh, others have had my same problem).  You see, in the newest versions of the WordPress.org blogging software, there are ways that you can save time by scheduling your posts in advance.  The first time I tried this I was extremely excited because I decided that I would save time and schedule my posts only once per week instead of posting to my blog every single day. 

When you go to schedule your blogs, you set a specific time for publishing your post by clicking on the edit button beside the words that say “publish immediately.”  Then when you are done writing your blog post you obviously go and click on “save.”  If you have taken these two steps, you may have forgotten to take the critical third step.

HERE’S MY MISTAKE!  You see, I didn’t know that you still needed to click on the “publish” button in order to complete the scheduling process for your blog posts.  I discovered this after getting frustrated and doing all of my research in order to try and figure out why my scheduled posts weren’t publishing.  You see, there are 3 different types of status’s that your blog can have when you go to “manage” your posts:  published, unpublished, and scheduled.  A blog post will stay “unpublished” if you simply schedule a publish time and then go and “save” your post.  When the scheduled time of your post arrives, nothing will be published. 

In order for a scheduled blog post to be published at the desired time, you must select a time to publish your blog, save your post, AND publish it.  This can be confusing to some people that may think that clicking on the publish button will publish their post immediately istead of the desired publish time.  This is the mistake that I made.  There are pages and pages of people that have discovered problems with the scheduled posting feature on their WordPress blogs.  I have seen people who have written specific programs to go through and publish posts around the desired time so that they don’t have to do it manually.  I wonder how many of these people are making the same mistake that I have made.

No, this did not solve my problem. There is no “Publish” button I can find after the initial clicking of the Publish button. Typical workflow will be for user to create a new post, save it, edit it, etc. Set the publish date. Maybe publish it; maybe save again. At some point they will click the publish button and the post will appear as “scheduled” But it will never show.

I am surprised by the lack of response on the wordpress site…which leads me to think maybe I am missing something or that my configuration is wrong somehow. This is a fundamental core feature of WordPress that, when broken like this, makes blogging ridiculously complicated. So it can’t possibly be happening for millions of other users. Is it possible the cron job or whatever is failing? Where would that be logged? I have version 2.5.1; should I upgrade to 2.6.x? Very frustrating. We finally got our management blogging and now I have to go in every day and check to see if any scheduled posts need to be manually published! It’s not just “user error” I tried it myself and observed the same problems.

This ABSOLUTELY solved my problem, Daniel. Because I too thought that if I hit Publish it would trigger the post to publish immediately. Looking back it would have been no big deal to test that theory, but sometimes the obvious, isn’t, until after the fact. Thanks so much for this post. Saved me HOURS of wasted time searching for a better solution when there was none.

Nothing seems to be easier than seeing someone whom you can help but not helping.
I suggest we start giving it a try. Give love to the ones that need it.
God will appreciate it.
