    When schedule my posts WordPress changes the time, my followers don’t get them in their emails, and they aren’t published on Facebook. What should I do?

    The blog I need help with is christinemclean10.wordpress.com.



    Hi there. Scheduled posts don’t go live immediately on the time they’re scheduled. As I understand it, they appear in the Reader at the scheduled time, but only appears on your blog and send out notifications the first time on or after the scheduled time that someone visits your blog. I’ve no idea why they designed it that way, but that’s how it works.

    Scheduled posts will be triggered by the first visit to your blog on or after the exact date/time you set. If you see that the scheduled time has come and gone and your post has not published, simply log out of WordPress.com and view your blog’s front page. Your visit should cause the post to appear. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/schedule-a-post/
