Support » Fixing WordPress » future time stamps keeps changing and not posting

  • Resolved mrsdeane


    I have a bizarre problem since upgrading to WP 2.2.3 (I think that’s the one). I usually edit the time stamp so the post will show up on the next calender day, say something around 00:01. In the past this worked fine. Now the post will be scheduled, but not posted. When I check at, say, 00:09 no post. The Dashboard tells me the post is scheduled for publishing in, say, 14 minutes. I wait 20 minutes. Nada. I look at the Dashboard and it tells me the post is waiting to be published in 35 minutes. It is trying to escape me, it seems, running ahead of the clock.
    I have no idea what causes it. I can solve this by going into the Dashboard > manage > posts > edit post. I change the time stamp from 00:01 to 00:02 and voila, the post is published. Really weird, and slightly annoying, since I can’t rely on the time stamp feature this way.
    Anyone with a bright idea how to fix this?

    NB I did not change anything in my time settings. I am two hours ahead of UCT times, as usual in this season.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Thank you

    Well, the only thing that helped was upgrading to the new version 2.3.1 – which confirms my suspicion that this was a WP error rather than something going wrong somewhere else. I must I was a bit disappointed with the lack of responses on my query, especially since I wasn’t the only one with this problem.
