Time stamp for future posts doesn't work (2 posts)

    Hi there!

    I'm slightly getting insane. For a couple of hours now I'm trying to get my WP to schedule posts which I want to have to be published in the future but it doesn't seem to work.

    That is what I have done:

    I wrote a post as usual. Then checked the "edit time Stamp". I put in a future time (e.g. five minutes to future; just to test the scheduling) and pressed the "published" button.

    I let the time passed so that the post have to be published and have to appear on my blog. But it didn't.

    A took a look into the database and I saw that the post_status was still set to "future". I can't stand it no more! What the f.. is going wrong? Should it change to "published" when the point in time passed? Or the other way: Doenst it have to be a "published" post in the post_status field and WP is checking if the post time is higher than the Server time so that the posr have to appaer in the blog?!

    In the meantime I have tryied every possible combination when posting such as:

    -Radio button draft or published
    and/or
    -Time Stamp Edit checkbox check or unchecked
    and/or
    -Pressing Save or publish

    but nothing worked.

    I'm using WP 2.1.2.

    Has anyone an idea what's going wrong?

    Thanks a lot

    It will publish when the time passes, however it's possible that you're an hour off due to daylight savings time or something.
