Scheduled Revisions are Not Publishing

This guide has advice for what to do if your scheduled revisions are publishing.

Change Your Scheduling Options

If you find that scheduled changes are not being published at the correct time, try changing the scheduling option that is explained in this article. There are two options available:

  1. WordPress Cron
  2. PublishPress Revisions scheduling

If the WordPress Cron is not working, PublishPress Revisions does also provide it's own scheduling mechanism. That method is available by going to Revisions > Settings > Scheduled Revisions > and unchecking this box: “Use WP-Cron scheduling”:

Use WP Control or a Similar Plugin

If revisions are not publishing at the scheduled time, try the WP Crontrol plugin or a similar tool. If it indicates that the wp-cron event did not execute, a hosting configuration change may be needed.

Check Your Site's Time Zone

The other common source of scheduled publishing problems is an incorrect time zone. Check to see if your site has a mismatch between the timezone on your server and the timezone inside the WordPress admin area.

Disable Any Cache Plugins or Options

Caching plugins may impact the scheduling revisions. Try disabling any caching systems on your site and then testing the scheduling of revisions.
