Categories revert to default when scheduled posts are published
|Reported by:||danielbachhuber||Owned by:||nacin|
The issue is that a scheduled post's categories are dropped when it's published. check_and_publish_future_post() calls wp_publish_post():
which, in turn, gets a WP_Post object, changes the status, can calls wp_insert_post():
but, because post_category isn't a part of the WP_Post object, the categories default to default
r21942 seems to be the culprit. This is reproducible on wpcom and in trunk.
