WordPress: My Scheduled Post Won’t Post!
Here’s a little WordPress troubleshooting advice to put in your back pocket. Every once in a while, I’ll schedule a post on my site — and then find out much later in the day that the post hadn’t updated! It’s super-frustrating.
Worse yet, you can re-adjust the scheduled time and date, but the darned thing won’t budge!
And, for some reason, once you’ve assigned a post as “Scheduled,” you lose the option to simply hit “Publish.”
It’s still there, if you go to Posts -> All Posts and select Quick Edit for the post. You toggle “Status” to “Published.” But… no dice. That’s not working either.
Don’t sweat it. The answer is simple. You can solve this in a few easy steps.
