Support » Fixing WordPress » Missed Schedule Problem (WP 2.8)

  • A couple days after WP 2.8 was released, I upgraded my blog to it from 2.7.1. Since upgraded, I’ve scheduled a number of posts and they’ve all worked fine. However, this past weekend, I ran into a problem.

    I wrote a post last Wednesday, July 1 and scheduled it for Saturday, July 4 at 6:00 a.m. When I woke up Saturday, I checked my blog to see if the post was published and I noticed it wasn’t there. I logged in to my WordPress admin panel and saw that the scheduled post was labeled “Missed Schedule.”

    I manually published the post, but I’m wondering what would cause this all of the sudden. The post did have four links to other posts on my blog and only the first one resulted in a trackback, so I’m not sure if that caused the problem.

    Can anyone shed some light on this problem? Thanks!

  • same issue. i have same problem too. and dont know how to fix it

    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.
