WordPress Quirk – Please Stop Switching PM to AM – September 17, 2020

With a very few exceptions, every time I schedule a post with a set time the time switches to AM when I click on the minutes area. As most of my posts are scheduled in the PM part of the day and only two posts of my daily posts fall in the AM part of the day, this is an irritant. Most of the time, it’s not a problem as it shows as Scheduled if it’s a PM post. The other day, it showed as Scheduled for 9:09 P. M., but when it posted it scheduled for 12 hours earlier. I double-check when scheduling since it should show as posting as scheduled.

Before the new editor, I didn’t have this issue. When I clicked on the minutes area, it stayed AM or PM depending on if I was scheduling a post in the morning or later in the day. My question is this a bug or a “feature?” I hope it’s a bug and not a feature as it’s frustrating especially when it shows a scheduled post as going live at a future time, but posts it earlier. We shouldn’t have to deal with this issue. I am not a fan of improvements that make us work harder on our blogs.
