    when scheduling a post, WordPress resets the scheduled time to some hours before. See this animated gif, where a scheduled time of 5:00am is set and WordPress changes it to 3:00am.


    I’m quite sure, it’s a time zone issue because I’m in CET and CE(S)T is +2 hours UTC at the moment. I’ve checked the servers time, which is correct. Additionally I’ve checked the timezone of WordPress itself, which is set to Berlin (see the animated gif). Tried to manually set timezone to UTC+2, which results in the same issue.

    Any hints?

    Just tested the classic editor, not using Gutenberg:

    Same issue: The time is rewinded by two hours after reloading the site.

    Do any of these help:

    Try check the server time (use phpinfo())

    google: “wordpress timezone scheduled posts”

    Thanks for your reply.

    Unfortunately I’ve cehcked this. Servertime is correct, additionally, the timezone in WordPress itself is correct (as you can see from the attached gif in the first post).

    Take a look at the post time in the database.
    What time is in the database in table wp_posts for this post?

    Sorry for the late answer, didn’t see, that you’ve answered.

    The database says 1am in post_date_gmt column and 3am in post_date column.
    From this point of view, it seems to be okay.

    But I’m still curious, why WordPress resets my set time :/
