Schedule a post has not been working all week

    I’ve scheduled posts on three occasions this week, nicluding today, and none of them have published at their scheduled time. Two I was able to publish an hour later, after I realised they had not gone live. One would not let me publish at all, and I ended up copying the html and pasting into an entirely new post, then deleting the original. I need to be able to schedule my posts in advance – is anyone else having this problem?

    Thanks,
    Caroline

    The blog I need help with is secondhandshopper.wordpress.com.

    I’ve seen this happen when you have a Sticky post, but your blog doesn’t seem to have one. And there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with your blog. Your feed looks okay as well http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsecondhandshopper.wordpress.com%2Ffeed

    I suggest you contact staff via your dashboard Help button and get them to look into it.

    Thanks for the suggestion – will do so. Just wanted to check it wasn’t something daft I was missing…

    No. Normally I’d say you were probably doing something wrong, or just tell you that scheduled posts don’t actually go live till someone visits the blog (they don’t; little known fact) but when you talk about the post that simply would not post at all, that’s a big red flag. It means there’s something wrong with the guts of the blog, and staff need to fix it. It’s not a simple problem.

    Problem is I’m on wordpress.com, so can’t contact staff. This might be the nudge I need to upgrade. I suppose it has been 5 years now…

    Thanks again!

    You mean they’re not answering your message? They’ve said they’re only doing support for blogs with upgrades until they’re caught up (I estimate that’ll be Never). I will flag this thread for staff attention, since we’ve been seeing a fair number of weird subscription and related issues and they might all be tied to this same problem.

    My scheduled blog this morning didn’t go out as scheduled – it went out at least half an hour delayed and there was a little red note in the posts window – unable to schedule I think it said, but did it automatically eventually. Interesting. Almost all my posts are scheduled so I would like to keep an eye on this.

    If you have any upgrades, then take advantage of staff attention by reporting this from your dashboard Help button.
