    Whenever I schedule a post, everything looks right and it schedules. But the schedule date and time passes and the post remains un-posted. it stays ‘scheduled’ as if the date and time i set it for have not passed. help!

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

    Has someone visited your site in the meantime? Scheduled posts won’t “trigger” until the first time someone visits after the scheduled publish time of the post.

    Dear Ryan, I experience the same problem as prcreator.
    Why does a scheduled post not trigger until the first time someone visits…? I am starting up a new blog, which links posts to twitter and facebook. But of course it will never be posted on twitter unless it is first triggered. But it is unlikely to be triggered if it is not clicked on through twitter or facebook…
    Schedule = schedule, right?? Can wordpress fix this?

    Thanks so much for the help.

    The solution is to visit the post yourself, while signed out. But that’s just a workaround; you make a very good point.
