WordPress Errors or Theme Errors?


I was having a few problems on the back-end of my blog for a couple of weeks.

WordPress 2.8 Bug? Missed Scheduled Posts


The scheduled post feature on my blog no longer seems to work, and all scheduled posts pass their post time with a "Missed Schedule" error message.
