If it takes effect, when you hit the button, instead of getting the
Your blog post published successfully!screen, you'll see the "Edit Posts" menu, with your new post listed, but shown with the "scheduled" notation besides the date / time stamp.
After the indicated date / time, refresh the "Edit Posts" screen, and you'll see that the post is now published. Or refresh the front page of the blog, and the newest post, just published, should be at the top. With dynamic publishing of the blog, you (or another blog reader) will have to do something in the way of reading the blog, to trigger the publishing.
If you're like me, and like to publish posts with a far future date, to keep some posts at the top of the blog, just Publish the post once without changing the date. Then Edit the post, and change the date as you like. The future posting date only takes effect when you change the date on a new post; edit the post after publishing, and the future posting feature is bypassed.
Are you having a problem with scheduled posts? Which scenario applies in your case?
- Things that post immediately, when they shouldn't.
- Things that post later, when they should post immediately.
- Things that never post.
- Time zone where you live.
- Time zone on your computer.
- Time zone of the blog.
- Is DST in effect?
