  • Discovered through repeated expereince in use.
    This behaviour is a regression over 2.2

    Reproduction steps.
    1) Write post #1.
    2) Set publish date to be in the future Day 7
    3) click publish
    4) write post #2
    5) set publish date to the same future date & time Day 7
    6) click publish
    7) open post #1 and re-set publish date to be day 14
    8) click SAVE (there is no publish date)

    Actual behaviour
    on day 7 both items publish automatically

    Desired behaviour
    on day 7 post #2 published
    on day 14 post #1 publishes

    work-around?
    I haven’t found one other than being sure you get the publish date right first time around

  • You might have a look at http://trac.wordpress.org/ to see if something like this has been logged there.

    If not, log away 🙂

    Well, I repeated the steps above… true, not with days but minutes – I am still waiting to see the results 🙂

    As I said above: I repeated the steps above ad literam (using minutes instead of days) – and it worked as it was supposed to. Maybe there is an issue when it comes to days… but in principle it worked.

    I’ve had a reader write to me indicating that he can see my published posts up until December 17th. When I look at my view I only see posts with a publish date that has already passed – no future posts – I’m not sure if this is a bug.

    I’ve not suffered from the above problem again because I’ve been using a work-around. I will stop using the work-around and see if it repro’s for me.

    Thankyou very much for checking this out and finding it doesn’t reliably reproduce elsewhere.

    The user who saw my future posts says he clicked on this link: http://wendyhome.com/wp-admin/lost%20my%20passport-1%20in%20my%20US%25

    somehow I accidently put an admin link in a hyperlink. The result appears to be that all future posts are shown.

    Feature request
    if an admin link is placed in a post the log-in page should be shown, of a failure to show anything rather than publishing all future posts.

    Thanks 🙂
