Testing Post 1-2-3!

Okay, if you all remember the issue with the April Fool’s post going up a day early, I had that almost happen with another post. I know I checked all the settings after that post, and they were all correct, but I scheduled another post and kept a closer eye on it, and, yep, even though I scheduled it for Sunday at 3 am, it was posting up Saturday at 3 am.

So, I got on with WordPress chat help on Saturday, and there might have been a bug causing it (around the UTC settings) which is exactly what I thought. “It’s like I’m in another part of the world, time zone wise!”.

Which would be really cool if I suddenly woke up in a non-USA location, but, sadly, wasn’t the case.

(But I was “time travelling” after all!)

It’s good it might have been a bug, because I really thought I was losing my shit–I mean, more so than the sheer mental and emotional strain of living where I am.

So, that’s the point of this post…is to do a test run after I switched my time zone from “Chicago” to “UTC-5”.

That’s one way the WordPress representative suggested I try if there is a bug.

Another “fix” they mentioned is to check the post date in the list of posts (which I had actually done after the post mix-up had occurred before), to see if it’s the same as the other posts. So, if you’re reading this, and you have had a similar problem, I hope these fixes help!

  1. Hope all is well with time zones and scheduling now…..there are a lot of little bugs with WordPress (so I hear). I know one thing that I hear from some of my followers is that even though my posts are scheduled for a certain time – THEY don’t get it until sometimes just a few minutes LATER while others get it when scheduled. Weird. I suspect it’s not MY problem but theirs…..still it’s annoying and we all have enough annoying crap in our lives without that – right? 🙂

    1. I know, right? There’s one “glitch” that’s been there as long as I’ve been using WordPress. But, yeah, maybe it’s something to do with the cookies and they need to clear their cache…or their internet? Who knows? But, yeah, I see the comments. I think your blog is fun and I love that you keep hosting it!
