I’ve been using Twitter Tools plugin with one of my WordPress blogs to update my WordPress with tweets and vice versa. Over the past few weeks, I recently realized that many of the posts that are created from my Twitter feed have had a “Missed Schedule” note on them. Basically what has been happening is the day/time comes and goes and the scheduled posts do not ever get published, hence the term Missed Schedule.
I’ve found a “fix” for this problem… actually, it’s much more of a workaround for this problem. Here’s what you need to do if you’re dealing with the same problem of your posts Missing Schedule:
- Open up any of the posts that have the Missing Schedule note on them.
- On the right hand side, in the publish window, change the Status from Scheduled to Draft.
- Click Publish. You’ll get a “Post draft updated” message.
- Click Publish again. You’ll get a “Post Published” message.
This workaround will work if you don’t have too many scheduled posts, or if you don’t mind a long tedious process. Luckily, I only had about 5 posts that were Missing Schedule, so I just went through and adjusted them manually. If you have more, I have read a few words about plugins that fix this problem, but I was a bit hesitant to try them.
