  • I have made some XML posts by program, and all is well with the post and it looks great… it just seems that I may have failed to put something in the XML to make it fire when ready..I am showing the post date in the future, so once I import the file.. it does show as scheduled, but when it comes time to post it says “Missed the post” and if I edit and update then it immediatley posts… Surely I don’t need to come in after an XML upload and edit and click “Update” on each one to make sure they post when ready… any suggestions would be appreciated..

    Here is what my <item> file looks like…
