    WP Missed Scheduled (plugin) Requirements (minimum?) Recommended:

    PHP 4.3 ~ 5.3

    MEM: WP 32M ~ 64M (MAX 1288M ~ 256M) - ALLOCATED PHP 64M ~ 128M


    FIXED HOSTING SHARED, VPS, DEDICATED (no splitted on nultiple servers/cloud)



    WordPress 2.6+ ~ 3.5+ - Best Choice 3.1.0 ~ 3.4.3 - Optional 3.6+ ~ 3.7+

    Some plugins, or cache backend, that perform "WordPress Database Caching" could cause malfunctions.

    The Missed Schedule Problem

    The way WordPress handles scheduling is that whenever a page is loaded, either from your blog or in your admin control panel, the file wp-cron.php is loaded. At normal, if correctly configured, the server can talk to itself just fine and WordPress scheduling system will works perfectly. It’s only when you start doing strange and weird things like not having DNS setup properly or blocking loopback connections then it will cause you problems. It is possible that certain web hosts are not allowing WordPress cron jobs to run.

    Publish a bunch of future posts noticed that they won't publish and when time comes to go live they just turn Missed Schedule. Took a look at the WordPress code and noticed future posts get assigned a cronjob ($unix_time_stamp, 'publish_future_post', array($post_ID)) wp_schedule_single_event.

    Dealing with WordPress Missed Schedule

    If you are scheduling blog posts in WordPress and seeing a "Missed Schedule" message, it's likely caused by an issue with your web server, or it is WordPress that is causing the problem of your blog posts not being posted as scheduled. This is an annoying problem. However, there is a very simple fix that is easy to do. The "Missed Schedule" problem seems to point to the web server and WordPress. The "time/date" comparison needs to match in order for your blog posts to get published as scheduled.

    How to Work Plugin WP Missed Schedule?

    Why don't you just look at the database and publish all posts with future status and date in past?

    My plugin WP Missed Shcedule looks for posts with a date in the past that still have post_status=future. It will take each post_ID and publish wp_publish_post it.

    This plugin will check every 5 minutes, if there are posts that match the problem described. 'WPMS_DELAY',5

    To not use too many resources, it fix for 5 items per session, one session every 5 minutes LIMIT 0,5

    All others failed will be solved in future sessions, until no longer exist.

    When you activate this plugin the first 5 "Missed Scheduled Future Posts" are fixed immediately. All others are fixed the next batch.

    On some case (rare?) are also fixed live. If you have "Missed Scheduled Future Posts" after this plugin is activated, is not one error or bug: wait the next checking. If "Missed Scheduled Future Posts" persist, verify that WordPress installation is clean, or exist conflict with other plugins.

    N.B. If have active others plugins with the same functions of "WP Missed Schedule" this is on conflict and not work. I suggest to delete or deactivate all others, clean related database options table, and use only "WP Missed Schedule". In the same way "WP Missed Schedule" could create conflicts with other plugins with the same functions. In this case, delete or disable it and only used the others.

    WordPress comes with its own cron job that allows you to schedule your posts and events. However, in many situations, the WP-Cron is not working well and leads to posts missed their publication schedule and/or scheduled events not executed.

    To understand why this happen, we need to know that the WP-Cron is not a real cron job. It is in fact a virtual cron that only works when a page is loaded. In short, when a page is requested on the frontend/backend, WordPress will first load WP-Cron, follow by the necessary page to display to your reader. The loaded WP-Cron will then check the database to see if there is any thing that needs to be done.

    Reasons for WP-Cron to fail could be due to:

    DNS issue in the server.
    Plugins conflict
    Heavy load in the server which results in WP-Cron not executed fully
    WordPress bug
    Using of cache plugins that prevent the WP-Cron from loading
    And many other reasons

    I installed this plugin (easy peasy lemon squeezy) and it works very well. My only issue is that subscribers to newly published blog posts do not receive an email if I've scheduled a post with this plugin activated.

    So I'm now publishing manually daily.

    Is there a solution to this issue?

    @sLa NGjI's It 100% does not work that way and even joking around you should not ever make statements like that here. KimbaLikes is just posting a question and that will never get a "ban".

    This may have been a better response:

    KimbaLikes? Can you please post your own new topic after reviewing the text starting at the top of this page?

    Many users of the plugin have written to ask clarifications about manual installation of the "Special Gold Edition".

    Here's everything you need to know:

    1 - Download manually, locally, the gold version from the repository.
    2 - Extract the contents locally.
    3 - Identify the version with a time of checking desired.
    4 - Rename the file locally in wp-missed-schedule.php
    5 - Overwrite, via ftp, the local file with the file that is installed on WordPress.

    That's it!

    There are various versions with the time of checking variable from 1 minute to 24 hours!

    Foe example, you will want to install the version with a time of "checking 1 hour", perform the following:

    rename wp-missed-schedule-60.php to wp-missed-schedule.php


    For any other question, about it, please post @ at wordpress.org/support/plugin/wp-missed-schedule

    Thanks :)
