Support » Your WordPress » Getting “Missed schedule” since upgrading to 2.8

  • I run a site that’s been scheduling posts since we were in our diapers. However, we upgraded to 2.8 and added wp-super-cache yesterday, and now are no longer able to schedule anything. Not posts scheduled before the upgrade and installation of plugin, nor new ones.

    Anyone know wtf happened? And how do we fix?

    I have solved to the problem of missed scheduled:

    – First I recognized that wordpress 2,8 is much more slow, is a fact.
    – Then I stopped looking for an error of programming. I started to find an excessive delay.
    – Then, reading, I discovered that schedule post was not a problem of WordPress 2,8 it is a symptom of a slow system.
    – Finally I found it the solution here: and consists of modifying the timeout in wp-includes/cron.php.
    Approximately in the line number 205 I changed
    wp_remote_post ($cron_url, Array (‘ timeout’ => 0.01, ‘ blocking’ => false));

    To 20 seconds:

    wp_remote_post ($cron_url, Array (‘ timeout’ => 20, ‘ blocking’ => false));

    Lamentably I have not get to scheduled post work nex to Hyper Cache (they only works together in WP 2,6) reason why you must to disconnect that plugin to see working scheduled post.
    It’s work for me. I hope help you.


    Im no techie or anything but what I do seems to work in at least getting the article to display.

    the missed schedule thing tends to happen for me when I change the date to something prior to today’s date. WP freaks and calls it a Missed Schedule.

    Seeing that, if I can get away with it, I then change the date to a time that is just ahead of the date and time I am in right now.

    I cant get it to sit up like 2 years ago, but i can get it to present itself right now (which will be the past soon enough if you know what I mean.)

    Thats not the solutioin but it is a minor work around given the circumstance that I cannot find whee in the hell wp-includes/cron.php is

    All the best


    PLugin to solve this bug:
