One of the best things about WordPress, is that it lets you schedule blog posts (in advance) to be automatically published at a specified time. This feature comes in very handy not just for travel bloggers, but also for those who are using WordPress to power their blogs.
I have been using this feature here at WPKube to schedule blog posts ahead of time, so I can give more time to other projects. As I started scheduling more blog posts, I realized it had one small glitch.
That sometimes it doesn’t publishes the scheduled posts.
I know it is only affects a small number of WordPress sites and is probably a web hosting issue.
If this has happened to you before, then you know how frustrating it is, to come back after a long vacation or break, and see the error notification in your WordPress dashboard. It doesn’t happen always, but when it does, it can mess up your entire publishing schedule.
A quick google search revealed that there is a free plugin available called WP Missed Schedule. It works pretty much out of the box. It took me probably five minutes or so to install and configure this plugin.
