Support » Plugin: WP RSS Aggregator - Automatic and Powerful Content Aggregation and Curation » Immediately publishing instead of scheduling future-dated feed items

  • I made a few minor changes to my RSS feed today and when I refreshed the feed it immediately published all future dated items instead of scheduling them like it has before. Any thoughts or solutions? Anyone else have this problem?

  • What is the time zone you have set in Settings > General? Have you set the same time zone as the scheduled publish time?

    Also, please review the server time zone. Your host or system administrator should help with that.

    Let us know if having all three time zones consistent helps you resolve this.

    I’m having this problem too. We import a list of upcoming events from an RSS feed here: I have my WordPress template set to only show feed items with “Future” publishing status so it will show all upcoming events, not ones that have already occurred. When the most recent event was imported, instead of having a pub date of Nov. 6 in WordPress like is specified in the “pubDate” attribute of the XML, it set the pub date to be the same as the time it was imported to WordPress.

    I’ve rolled back the WP RSS Aggregator plugin to the 4.11 version (I just picked that version randomly), re-imported the items, and the pub date was set correctly, so this must be a bug in more recent versions.

    The time zone thing didn’t fix it. All three time zones were already correct. I also rolled back my version to a previous version of the plugin and things are working correctly. I’m thinking it’s a bug in the current version.

    I’m having the same issue on a site that has an RSS feed of upcoming events. Works with version 4.11 but not with the most recent version. Not a time zone issue. Please fix this bug. Thanks!

    Hi all. We had explicitly removed the ability to import items with future dates. This was because of timezone differences between the feed and your site accidentally making items being imported as “Future”.

    Given the demand that you’ve all brought forward, we’ll be adding an option to feed sources that will re-enable this behavior. Does that sound good?

    Yes the scheduling future posts option is why I use this plugin. Adding that back would be amazing. Thank you!

    That would be fantastic. Thanks!

    Thanks so much @mekku
