WP Super Cache
Error 404 when previewing scheduled posts (3 posts)

    Hello everybody.

    I'm using this amazing plug-in and it really helps me, but it have a very little bug that I imagine it's easy to fix.

    When I schedule a post for a future date, then I click in the "View post" link, this link sends me to the permalink URL of the blog. But my post it's not published yet, so it returns a 404 error.

    My WP Super Cache is configured to threat logged in users like anonymous users, so it serves me a supercache file even I am logged in.

    So, if I add a "?preview=true" after the permalink, i can see the page normally.

    So, my suggestion is: When a post is scheduled to a future date, add the querystring ?preview=true in the "View" links of the WP Panel.

    The plugin really should disable the anonymous setting when a post is previewed. Added to my TODO list.

    AH, interesting. There's no easy way of detecting if you're looking at a future post or not at the time when the plugin makes you anonymous. There is a check for the preview parameter though. That's the best you'll get.
