[resolved] Posts Still Missing Schedule (11 posts)

    My posts began missing their scheduled publishing times a couple weeks ago. (When I login, it says "Missed Schedule" in red - if I click 'update' the post publishes immediately.) A member on this support forum suggested the problem would be fixed with 3.5.1, but it is still happening. Will this be fixed with the next upgrade? Is there anything I can do?

    My site is: http://www.prayersandapples.com

    I'm new and really don't know much about all of this: what is a cron job? And is there anything I could possibly mess up on my site by trying one?

    A cron job is a scheduling feature on your server that handles things like scheduled database back ups or email to occur at certain times. WordPress has it's own cron feature that in fact is a virtual cron that checks the current time against the list of scheduled tasks (like scheduled posts) every time a page is loaded on the site.

    With a real cron job you let your server do the cron job (no matter if a page is loaded on your site) but still use the WordPress internal cron functions.

    If you're not comfortable doing this you can also use this plugin:

    Thank you! Quick question: I posted another thread about my backup plugin not working (all of a sudden it's not backing anything up when it's scheduled to) - could the two issues possibly be related?

    ... could the two issues possibly be related?

    They probably are. It could be that the plugin is no longer compatible or the load on the server is too heavy when doing the backup, which results in WP-Cron not executing fully. Try disabling the plugin and see if the scheduled posts work.

  11. kumarj? This topic is months old and marked resolved already. Most people won't look at those and your chances of getting help on a resolved topic is pretty slim.

    Can you please create your own topic instead? It's the best way to get help for your problem.
