    Social autobroadcast was not working since I installed 'WP Missed Schedule' on my site, I try to change it from

    Automatic (WP Cron) (easiest)

    to

    Manual (advanced)

    but still not working (http://rubiinforma.com/index.php?social_controller=cron&social_action=cron_15&api_key=XXXXXXXX)

    I enabled 'Debug Mode (nerds only)' but nothing was write to debug_log.txt (0Bytes)... any idea what's happening??

    I had the same issue and I identified the following cause :

    The social plugin publishes only when the publish_future_post cron job is run, which is the Automatic method. However when 'WP Missed Schedule' is installed, the cron job is never executed and therefore the social plugin doesnt broadcast.

    I think the WP Missed Schedule deletes the publish_future_post job, manually fetches the ID of the missed post and publishes it but misses the step which is used for social broadcasting:

    remove_action('publish_future_post','check_and_publish_future_post');

    Just an update to anyone facing the same issue. I uninstalled the WP Missed Schedule plugin, disabled WP CRON in wp_config.php and configured a manual cron job to run wp_cron.php every 5 minutes. This resolved the missed schedule and social broadcasting issue.
