I'd appreciate any help. For MONTHS I've been having issues with the scheduler function making mistakes. Sometimes it ignores a saved draft, to post an earlier draft with a third of the content(I can't find even any autosaves for the missing information!). Sometimes it ignores the date I asked it to post and leaves it in the scheduled folder unpublished. And tonight it just ignored the scheduled date for TWO posts, and posted them immediately.
My first instinct was to say "I'm doing this wrong, rushing my button pushing, etc. to cause it to use earlier information then the finished stuff" but this is happening FAR too often to be just me, and I've been doublechecking ALL of the information I input into it. Generally at least once a week, I have to look in my folders to make sure that there's nothing sitting in the scheduled folder, with an un-used publishing date of three weeks prior, and I have to doublecheck all my posts to make sure that it hasn't randomly deleted pictures, writing, etc.
I think it's some sort of problem with the autosave, but I don't have the faintest clue. I've debated moving my site off of wordpress several times now because of this issue, except that I like my organization and layout here.
I wish there was a way to just not use the scheduler.... just file unpublished but finished pieces in a special folder so that I could publish them at whim, without worrying about publishing unfinished pieces, or relying on the broken timer.
I'm just tired of having my time and energy wasted trying to doublecheck whatever wordpress does, because of the frequency of these errors! It doesn't even notify me when things don't post!
I really hope someone has had these problems too, or knows how to fix them. I feel like I'm going crazy, but it's just incredibly frustrating!
The blog I need help with is thepaintedmask.wordpress.com.
