A few weeks ago wordpress decided it didn’t feel like actually publishing my scheduled posts anymore. Technically I could’ve poured hours into figuring out exactly why wordpress was misbehaving but you know, part of being a senior dev is prioritizing :) Sometimes the five minute “install a plugin” fix is good enough. There are a bunch of plugins to fix the scheduled posts not actually posting issue, the one I chose is called WP Missed Schedule and it seems to be working well. If you have a wordpress blog that doesn’t always do what you told it to, give WP Missed Schedule a try.
