Button to Publish Posts Scheduled for Later Immediately
|Reported by:||minusonebit||Owned by:||anonymous|
There have been several reports of posts scheduled not getting posted. I don't know the reason why and I have given up trying fixes and hacks. Its easier to just sign into console and edit the database directly.
Of course, there is the usual debate of whether its the WP application of the end user's server environment that causes the problem. I think its a WP problem, others are free to have their opinions.
Regardless of where the "blame" lies for the problem, the current implementation in 2.7 needs help.
As it is now, when a post misses its scheduled time, there is no way through the interface that I have found (you have to edit the DB) to get that post live because the "Publish Immediately" option goes away once you make it a scheduled post instead of a publish immediately post. You cant even convert it to a draft to publish it immediately. All you can do is edit the time that the post will be published (and putting in a new time X minutes from the present does not work, it simply misses those) so you actually have to copy and paste the post into a brand new post and publish immediately, or go through console.
And even if the posts missing the queue issue is fixed, this feature request should still be implemented. There should always be an option to take a post scheduled for later and make it live right now.
