Scheduled WordPress Posts Missed Schedule – Twitter Plugin

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:

  1. Open up any of the posts that have the Missing Schedule note on them.
  2. On the right hand side, in the publish window, change the Status from Scheduled to Draft.
  3. Click Publish. You’ll get a “Post draft updated” message.
  4. 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.
