• On 8:45 PST Dec 10 the first scheduled post has missed publication since about 10 years ago. We have published daily posts for all that time, with them mostly queued ahead of time to be published 6:45 EST every day.

    On Dec 10, ’22, this suddenly stopped.

    Is this scheduled publication a native function of WordPress, or is it a Theme function? If it is WordPress, does it use cron jobs on the server?

    Thanks, but it seems to me there should be a reason for this happening. I have neither installed new plugins recently nor changed any plugin configuration. WordPress just stopped publishing queued posts out of the blue, after working flawlessly for 10 years or so on the same site!

    I take it on faith that a plugin will fix the situation, but it shouldn’t have to depend on a plugin. …

    First, I’ll increase the memory limit. I’ll see if that makes a difference.

    Increasing WP memory made no difference. We now have more severe issues, with the Admin interface being nearly unusable, and I’m not sure I can install a new plugin.

    What do you mean by “nearly unusuable”? Please elaborate.

    This is what I see in the Admin interface : https://ssnet.org/dl/admin.jpg

    Try manually resetting your plugins (no Dashboard access required). If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

    If that does not resolve the issue, access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account’s control panel, navigate to /wp-content/themes/ and rename the directory of your currently active theme. This will force the default theme to activate and hopefully rule-out a theme-specific issue (theme functions can interfere like plugins).

    Thanks.
    Yes, I already deactivated all plugins. It made no difference at all. So I re-activated the most important ones – especially spam protection!

    Had not thought of simply deactivating current theme. That’s not something I had tried. That’s probably not it, but it’s worth a try.

    Thanks.

    H’mm… that didn’t exactly work. The Dashboard appearance did not change, but no “default theme” went into effect. I just got a message that the theme directory (which I renamed) does not exist. No site content showed up at all.

    Is there a way to set up a “default theme”?

    (I undid the change, and the public side of the site loads fine. Just the Admin section doesn’t have any styling whatsoever.)
