I've had posts not go out as scheduled and when I checked, MY wireless Internet connection had gone down.   As soon as I made sure the Internet connection was good, I published it manually.

It was NOT the scheduling that didn't work, it was MY Verizon JetPack.

I also have experienced delays or not posting at all when using the scheduling feature. Seems others have had issues as well.

Dave,

I have had that happen.  When you schedule, and then decide to make a change it messes it up.  You have to change the post to a draft, and unschedule it, make the changes and then go back to rescheduling it.  Otherwise, it does not publish, and you have to do it manually.  A

I have not used scheduled blogs for several years because of problems I encountered at that time.

I think it had to do with some updates that may have been done on Active Rain. I bet if you try to schedule a blog tomorrow it will go as planned.

I had the same problem today and have no idea why it didn't post.  I hadn't tried this in quite some time and I guess I won't try again for a while.

There seem to be some technical difficulties going on 'behind the curtain.' I agree that you should be able to count on it, but there are some unusual glitches going on.

If you made any change at all to the post after you hit the publish button then the scheduler kicks it out. For instance sometimes I get ahead of myself and don't select a topic and try to publish. It gives me an error button to let me know something is wrong. I can fix the problem and then proceed to schedule and it may look like it is scheduled but it will not publish at the selected time. It has to be manual.

I've never been able to figure out the schedule option - it's never worked properly for me, and I'm reading the comments here to see if anyone has a solution, but, so far, none.

I have had this happen on occasion as well but typically they publish as scheduled.   Once scheduled for posting --  I find that I shouldn't revise it until after it has published as that seems to create an issue(for me).

Tried scheduling for the first time this week and several times it wouldn't allow the post to be scheduled, so I gave up on it.
