Scheduled entries and pings (5 posts)

    From time to time I write posts in advance and having them as scheduled entries. It all works perfectly, except that WP pings the site update services not when the posts actually gets published on the blog but when I write them and hits "publish".

    Is there a solution to this problem? I'm using WP 1.5.1.2.

    I do believe that Skippy has a plugin for this:

    Included with WP-Cron is WP-Cron-Future-Pings. It's not perfect, and the pings don't go out exactly when the post becomes visible, but it should be better than pinging when you click "post".

    I'm trying to get better support for future-dated posts in the next version of WordPress. That would make WP-Cron-Future-Pings work a lot better.

    Thanks to both of you.

    I installed and activated wp-cron.php and wp-cron-future-pings.php but the ping still comes when I publish even though I scheduled the post to tomorrow morning.

    I also installed and activated wp-cron-reminder and got 8 60 minute reminders in less than 5 minutes.

    I know virtually nothing about php and related stuff. But I did look through wp-cron.php and saw that on row 24 when you get the hour you use 'h'. On my blog I use 'H' to get the 24-hour format instead of 12-hour format since we use 24h here in Sweden. May that be the problem?

    I changed 'h' to 'H' in row 24. Now it seems that the plugins work as intended, besides that the update services get pinged both when I push "publish" and when the post show up. But no problem with the reminder plugin.
