Scheduling posts apparently doesn’t work

Based on somebody else saying they had a problem with it, I tried to schedule my previous post instead of publishing it immediately; it published immediately anyway. I’d never tried this before but I assume the feature hasn’t been nonfunctional for the entire time that it’s existed, so it’s probably yet another example of an “upgrade” making something worse.

I’m scheduling this post for 6:00 PM Central Time tonight (Dec 10), so if you see it before that, this makes twice.

(Or maybe it was just a time zone issue? Can the first person who sees this please comment and say what time it was?)

  1. It turns out my settings were for the wrong time zone. (Scheduling a short time in advance was publishing immediately because based on the clock, I was setting it for a time that had already passed.) I know I set it for the right zone originally, but it probably got messed up either in some update or when Daylight Saving Time ended.
