Missed Schedule in WordPress 20

I dont know if is a bug or some problem with my server but this message is going with me on almost every installation of WordPress and has to do with a silly function:  wp_schedule_single_event($unix_time_stamp, ‘publish_future_post’, array($post_ID)).

The main problem with the function is that is not looking for “future” posts in database, maybe for saving those queries (just 1 query in this plugin), so the way this function works is very poor.

I hope this plugin solves many people with the same problem. I tested for almost a week and is working fine and publishing everything that needs to be published.

Ok, enough of the mumble jumbo, here is the plugin:

Missed Schedule for WordPress

Just unzip in your “wp-content/plugins” folder, activate the plugin and that’s it.

    Works fine, but it doesn’t clear the wp-cache to update front page with fresh post.

    Hi – how do I unzip it in that folder. I downloaded the plug in but I don’t know how to get it to the plug in area so I can activate it. Right now, it’s somewhere on my computer??? Help?

    @Mindle: I’ll look into that, however I have tested it in 2 blogs (here and here), both showed posts correctly after the installation of the plugin. Maybe has to do with any of your plugin(s)

    @Joanne: You must unzip first (use Winzip), then move the extracted files into your wp-content/plugins folder

    Looks like it takes 15 minutes or so after schedule is missed – is this correct?

    @Dale: Yes, the script runs automatically every 15 minutes (if you have visitors).

    If you prefer another value, you can customize this line in the missed-schedule.php file:

    define(‘MISSEDSCHEDULED_DELAY’, 15);

    Where 15 is the number in minutes ;)

    I have a site which I am migrating to WordPress and I was hoping that this plugin would fix my missed schedule issue. I am running WP 2.9.1 and have scheduled over 40 posts, all of which have missed schedule. I am using your plugin and I modified the delay to 5 minutes and when that didn’t work I installed the ‘Scheduled MIA’s” plugin as well which esentially is supposed to do the same thing. Do you have any idea what I can do to get better reliability with scheduled posts?

    Hi Tom, this plugin is working fine in 2.9.1, I only tested in 2 blogs but its working.
    However, as far as I can tell WordPress has fixed this issue in 2.9.1, so I recommend to do the following:

    * Uninstall both plugins (this and Scheduled MIA) and see if the problem is solved
    * If not, reinstall this or Scheduled MIA
    * If is not working yet, then it must be an issue with some of your plugins, let me know what plugins you have installed for further support.

    WORKS WITH WP 3.0.4!!

    Thank you very much for this plugin. I tried everything! A few notes:
    Make sure your timezone in the general settings is showing your correct local time.
    After that just download this plugin> unzip> install into plugins folder> activate> and enjoy the ability to schedule posts once again :)

    One of my clients is using this plugin and it seems to be working, but publishing two hours early. Any thoughts?

    I installed through WordPress plugin list. I have latest wordpress, but the plugin page does not say if its compatible with latest version of WordPress 3.5.1. So is this plugin going to be updated. I tried WP missed schedule plugin. Now I am trying this one, but if this does not work, then I am going to continue on to another plugin. This one is making me feel like its going to not work, since it is not compatible to latest WordPress.

    Been over 15 minutes, and it did nothing. So I am uninstalling it. There is no other plugins to try. So I guess it just won’t work. No more cron jobs for me.
