When writing a post I often edit the timestamp so the post will go up at 7am the following day. However recently the post is delayed by some 7 hours after the time I indicate in the “Edit Timestamp” box.
The date and time in the “Options -> General” settings are correct for my timezone and the output under “Default date” and “Default Time” correctly reflect my date and time.
It is only the “Scheduled Entries” on the Dashboard that indicates the post will go up 7 hours after I’ve scheduled it.
Any ideas on why this is happening and how to solve it other than to trick WP into thinking it’s 7 hours earlier that it actually is?
I know this is an older post, but I am having the same issue. In my case here is the relevant data:
EST Timezone (GMT-5)
MST Server Timezone (GMT-7)
MST MySQL Server Timezone (GMT-7)
I schedule a post for a future time and it does post on the correct day. In every single case it publishes the post 5 hours late. So a post set for 5:30a will not actually post until 10:30. When I look at the post data the post time is what I scheduled 5:30, but the entry for GMT shows the actual GMT time it posted, in this case 15:30. What is really odd is that the other two time entries in the DB for when the post was last modified shows the correct offset for instance the above post was last modified at 11:09 EST and it shows as 16:09 GMT.
I cannot find a resolution in the forum even doing a site: specific search using Google, so that is why I am posting this here. Since it is the same issue achudnow has and it is still open I just added to his rather than opening another thread.
One more note. immediately published posts show the correct time in post local and GMT fields.
