    I just noticed ...that....

    under Post , you edit publish and edit the date.

    I noticed can't schedule ...always " miss post "

    I check around it seem a lot using external plugin to fix it and claim WP schedule got bugs always.

    This is working fine for me. Maybe you installed some plugin that broke it?

    If you don't set up real cron job then it WILL miss those dates when your website has no visitors. WP_Cron runs when people visit your website, but if your website gets no traffic, it won't run. So you should set up a cron job in cPanel or whatever you use.

    It's working fine here as well, it has to be something on your end.

    Check the installed plugins, try disabling some of them and see if that does the trick.

    That is very interesting as I had not known that. 99% of the posts I put on my sites are all scheduled posts and never had an issue but I almost always have traffic on the sites. That is excellent information for building out a brand new site.

    Thanks for that info!

    This is not the case, WordPress cron jobs work whether you have visitors or not. WordPress does this automatically server side. You don't need to do it manually.
    Firstly check your dates are correct in the settings, when scheduling a post make sure the you hit ok after changing the date and then schedule.
    If this still doesn't work talk to your host as this is then how they set up cron.

    It does it automatically server side? Explain me how it works if you haven't set up a cron job. Are you forgetting PHP scripts are executed in 3 ways: via web server, cron or cli and that PHP runs only 1 thread (you can't spawn additional threads that could run WP_Cron automatically). That means besides a real cron job, there must be a human interaction. So technically your claim is wrong.. or when I'm wrong, please teach me so I wouldn't spread false information anymore.
