Entry Scheduling Not working

Asked by Adrian Black
Posted January 20, 2014.

I have some blog entries that are scheduled to start in the future.

This doesn’t seem to work.

I am running Movable Type Pro version 5.2.7 with: Community Pack 1.95, Professional Pack 1.75

Hi Adrian, There could be a couple of different reasons for this, depending on the details of your scenario.

1) Are the posts publishing immediately instead of in the future? If so, check to make sure that you’ve selected “Scheduled” instead of “Published” in the Publishing status for your entry.

2) Is the scheduled entry not publishing after the date specified? If so, check to make sure you have the run-periodic-tasks script set to regularly run via cron. Here’s more information about setting that up:
