The schedule feature has been messed up since the upgrade.  I travel a lot and love using the scheduler to post consistently, even when I am away. Frustrating not to have it work properly.

Brian,

Really sorry about this. I would stop using the scheduled post feature until further notice. This is all tied into the same stuff causing problems with login points and also comment points and notifications. We have the team reviewing code on this right now and trying to figure out what is happening here. Unfortunately I don't have an answer on what is happening other than we know scheduled posts are not working properly.

Hmmmm,

Does that mean you inadvertently become one of the notorious 'serial' posters I've read so much about?

I've always encountered 'stuff' when using scheduled posts so only place one in the queue at a time.

That has happened to me before too. I also have scheduled posts which never posted. Oh well! Such is life. I tend to publish my posts when I write them or keep them in draft to come back because I am always checking to make sure the publisher works, that is a waste of more time. :)

Yes, I schedule posts. This is one of those things that breaks, gets fixed and then breaks again. Not at all reliable. I started writing several posts in advance and just holding them in draft mode until I'm ready to post. The problem with that is I forget about them and some are time sensitive. Frustrating to say the least.

Brian, I've never trusted the autoscheduler.  It has always periodically glitched, and suspect it will continue to do so.  Overall, not much of an issue for me because each day I write my post and then immediately post it.  Rare is the time I have something finished in draft that I could even consider autoposting later.  Bill

I used to use the scheduler and it worked well for me but, since the upgrade I have been afraid to use it after reading about other's problems. I miss it and hope it is fixed soon but until then, I guess it is back to draft mode and manual posting.
