    Unfortunately, I’m not able to reproduce this. “Some time in the future” is shown when the publishing time > current time, in other words some time in the future. So it should only be visible on scheduled posts before they are published (when you look at them in preview mode).

    For how long does the date display “Some time in the future”? Does your time zone setting in WordPress match your actual time zone? And, if you know it, is the time zone on the server that host your WordPress site and the time zone setting in WordPress the same or do they differ?

    It displays for 4 hours. My time zones on WordPress is set to Easter Time, my time. I’m not sure what time zone the server is set at. Do you think the server is the issue?

    THe plugin uses the UTC time of the server to do its calculations, and it might be off. You can see the UTC time of the server in the WordPress settings where you configure the WordPress time zone (Settings -> General). Look for the text “UTC time is”. Since you’re Eastern time, you should be UTC-5. Does the UTC time look right?

    I’m sorry for such delay in my response. Yes, the UTC time is correct.

    Not sure how to solve this one, unfortunately. I’ve been doing a lot of testing and I’m unable to reproduce the behaviour you are describing. What about your WordPress version, are you using the most recent version?

    i just got the same problem…all of a sudden the “some time in the future” message comes out instead of 1 minute ago..it just happened for no reason..all i can think of is i did deactivate the plugin because i was testing other plugins…2 days later the message came out..now i activated the plug in and the message persist..im using the ajax version…i will clear browser cache delete plugin and php entries..then install again..
