Publish / Schedule issues with IOS app
I recently started using the app but I am having problems with it.
When I try publishing a draft, or when I tweak an already published post and try to re-publish it, it always sets it as a Scheduled post (usually about 8hrs in the future) and the blog post does not get published.
This means that the only way to post a blog post on the site from the app is to compose and publish straight away.
Otherwise, these is absolutely no way to publish a draft or tweak a live post. No matter what I tried to reverse the Scheduled action, none of the posts became live.
I have looked for similar discussions in this community but haven't been able to find anything. Any help with this would be very appreciated, as the issues I am currently having are making an otherwise good app unusable.
Any advice on this?
It sounds like your site might be set to the wrong time zone. If your site is set to a different time zone from your mobile device, that would explain why your posts are consistently scheduled to publish at a future time.
For a site hosted at WordPress.com, you can check your timezone setting in your site's General settings here:
If that doesn't resolve it for you, please let us know and we'll keep investigating!
Thank you for your help. I checked the settings on the site by following the link you provided, but it is actually set to the correct zone already.
I re-set it and saved, and then unlinked my account from the app. I did the whole thing where it removes my data from the device.
I logged back on and ran a test, and when it published, the time stamp instantly turned into '8 hours ago'
I looked for a time setting in the app but couldn't find a way to change it.
Just to confirm, my site is hosted at Wordpress.
Thank you for your help so far.
IS there an update on this? If I should be contacting someone else about this, it would be great if you could let me know who :)
All the best
