Where is the Publish button?

    I noticed two things that are new in my “publish” module this morning.

    1. There is no “publish” button

    2. WP has my current draft scheduled to publish at 4:00 today.

    Is there any way to disable scheduling?
    More importantly, how can I publish my post today with no “publish” button. Am I supposed to finish the draft, and then schedule publication for two minutes later?

    This just can’t be right – timethief suggested on the forums I send along a note to you folks.

    By the way, I’m using current Firefox as my browser and yes, I HAVE CLEARED both cookies and cache. I have the tidiest browser in the world just now. ;-)

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    I checked the post https://shoreacres.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=15038&action=edit and there is a Publish button. This is a screenshot of what I see using Firefox – https://skitch.com/mkoenig/fy2wa/publish-button.

    Is that the post? If it isn’t, can you send the link? Can you provide a screenshot of what you see?

    Please try using a different web browser like Chrome and see if that does the trick. Let me know how it goes.

    At the moment there isn’t a way to cancel a scheduled post (that I know of). In the meantime, please change the scheduled post time so that it doesn’t post at 4:00.

    I think the issue’s resolved.

    I logged back in and changed the scheduled post time four or five times. Eventually, the “publish” button popped back up. And, I figured out that a 24-hour clock is being used. When I edited the publish time, it came up as 04:00 – so it appears all is well. In any event, I still have a draft and not a published half-done piece.

    I assume the little pink bar that told me MK was editing my post was – you! That stopped my heart for a minute. At least I’ve got a new password now. ;-)

    Thanks so very much. If I have any problem posting I’ll be back, but I think it’s all good.

    Yep, that pink bar would have been MK. Sorry for the momentary scare there.

    Glad to hear this sorted itself out for you!
