Support » Everything else WordPress » Windows Live Writer & WordPress – post time question

  • I am trying WLW for a second time (the first time did not go well).

    My problem is entries not showing on my blog page. I publish the entry to my WordPress blog ( type, not type). It doesn’t appear on the page. When I look at posts in the dashboard, I can see it.

    It appears that the UTC is not being modified by the offset value I have set up within WordPress:

    UTC time is: 2008-03-23 12:09:09 pm
    Times in the blog should differ by: -4 hours (Your timezone offset, for example -6 for Central Time.)

    When I look at the post, the time is UTC time. So the post I published at 7:45 a.m is marked as 11:45 a.m. Which indicates I won’t see that post published on my page until almost noon!

    I have used other blog writing tools in the past that WordPress has handled fine in terms of publishing time.

    I don’t see anything in WLW that addresses time offset nor do I see any parameters that can be set to allow me to adjust time with a global offset. The time on the post properties is fine, but something is happening along with way.

    Can anyone help?

    My experience with WLW showed it taking its time from my computer.

    Is your computer time the same as your WP time? If not, and you don’t want it to be, I think you will have to compromise on an adjustment at one end or the other or use a fudged future post time.

    Actually WLW sends it in UTC time. This didn’t always work correctly with WordPress due to a bug on the server side, but we pushed out a WLW fix to work around it a few weeks ago.
