WordPress for iOS

Is just like whack-a-mole

First: Dates saved based on Time Zone offset, so when ever I edited a post the time regressed. Eventually the date changed and all my links broke.

Then: I learned about scheduling. This was a workaround because I could change the date.

Next: WP released an update that fixed the time offset problem. I got used to future scheduling.

Then: The Preview functionality stopped working. It coincidentally stopped working about the time we all started getting Invalid Certificate warnings.

So: I found a workaround

Now: I can no longer schedule posts for the future. All my posts are Immediate. The scheduling feature is what I use to space out my posts. The option is still there … It just doesn’t work. 😦

I am not crazy

Well OK … maybe a little bit

But at least the WP folks are aware of the Timestamp/URL issue I have been troubleshooting with iPhone App 3.9

… You can help!

Read the previous post or the previous several posts. Every time I update a post, the timestamp gets reset to an earlier time. Update enough and it gets reset to an earlier day – this changes the URL and breaks retrospective links.

Would you please repeat my steps, just update a post several times (add space, add a word, delete a word) and note the time stamp. If it changes, reply to this post.

Am I the only one having this problem?

Must have scotch …

After documenting to my own satisfaction … and hopefully to your satisfaction … I need scotch. Smoky not chill filtered, no coloring added, single malt scotch.

Being unable to go back and edit my previous posts puts the kibosh on my ability to tidy up and standardize various grammatical aspects.

I am sad 😦

Mmmmm scotch

… Troubleshooting Part Two

UPDATE – I just edited this and now the posting order is out of date! This post actually follows https://contrafactual.com/2014/02/02/ongoing-wp-problems/

I also just edited Timeline and now it is timestamped yet another day earlier with a URL of https://contrafactual.com/2014/01/31/timeline/

In my previous two posts in noticed that when I updated Timeline, the creation time and URL changed. If the URL changes every time I update it screws up all of my links!

So I took a look at the activity logs.

Really geeky debug stuff follows

QED

PS the new link function does not work. I had to manually code the HTML for the above link. Below is what I saw when I clicked the link icon
