Quirks of WordPress – April 13, 2020

Some quirks are more prone on my phones although they sometimes happen on my laptop.

I scheduled a post for 5:05 P. M. today, but missed how it had turned into 6:05 instead. I didn’t change the first 5 into 6, but WordPress decided it would on my behalf. This happens about 5 – 10% of the time on average.

It happens even if I don’t change the first number. For example, it’s 12:01 and I am posting it to show up at 12:12 so I only change the 01 to 12. I am used to double checking as it has another bad habit of posting immediately when I schedule a future post. Usually I catch that quirk during the verify phase.

I find if I do a save before posting, I spot the quirk time issues. Not always, but most of the time.

On my phone, I also more likely to accidentally click a wrong date without realizing it. Could be an earlier or later date. Then, I have to look for when it’s going to post or was posted if I hit an earlier date or time.

WordPress gets hungry and occasionally eats a post or part of one. I don’t always catch those, especially if it only ate part of a post.

A great example was as I went to post this post, I hit Wednesday instead of today. I caught it before posting.
