- Marking future dated post as published 5 answers
I am trying to force publish 'future' or 'scheduled' posts, and I am having trouble
The reason I am asking is because I am creating a site that allows users to do the editing on the front of the site, so I need a button that will allow users to force publish scheduled posts.
Right now I am just trying to find a process or idea that works consistently, and all I have come up with is this:
1) Adjust the scheduled time to the past 2) Changing post status from future to draft 3) Change draft back to scheduled 4) Server realizes the scheduled post time has past and marks it published
Needless to say this isn't ideal. For other status changes I was able to use the status button seen here: Publish pending article from front end with a button? .
I am at a loss on this one because I can't even get the process working on the backend I have looked around a great deal and see that others have had similar problems (e.g. http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/8368) but cannot find a solution. Asking the community for any ideas?
