Need Some Posting / Publishing on WordPress Help

Does anybody know how to set the setting back to PUBLISH NOW, if the setting has inadvertently been changed to a SCHEDULE ONLY setting?

I used to have the PUBLISH button right there on the left, and I just hit that when I was done writing my post. But now it just says SCHEDULE later. 

I want to be able toe PUBLISH now, without having to figure out what time to schedule it, especially because my WordPress time is off and I am not even sure what time I am actually scheduling the posts to go up. 

I tried looking through the WP setting and other places I could think of to alter settings for posting. but I found nothing that had to with this issue.

Any help from other bloggers is appreciated about this. 

Thank you 🙂

    That’s an odd issue. I wish I knew how to help you. I just looked at my own and played with it a bit but mine just has the publish now button. I was thinking that there might be something in the setting that you had checked inadvertently but I don’t see anything that would create that issue.

    The time zone thing is weird as well. I am on the east coast US but was able to figure out that it translates to +4. I think I google searched it a while back.

    Sorry I couldn’t be more help.

      Thank you for trying. Maybe I can figure out how to get WordPress tech support in a chat to guide me about how to reset the setting. I agree that I may have inadvertently clicked something that I did not mean to.

      Also maybe my laptop is acting up. There are a few other funny things happening like the time is off.n

      I see your email says guitar Do you play guitar too? I play guitar. There are a couple of videos on my YouTube channel.

      I am trying to get some more students in my area. Working on flyers now. I used to make good money teaching lessons years ago.

      I know people teach over Skype so I am checking into that too.

      What kind of music do you play? I am assuming Metallica, because of the quote on your blog.

        Yes, I play guitar, some piano and the harmonica. I make no claims at being great as I started to play more as a way to convey my words/lyrics. I love metal music but I mainly play acoustic folk type music. Indigo Girls, Floyd, Skynyrd, Dylan, ect.

        I’ve watched some of your guitar/song videos before. You’re good…better than me, but like I said, I make no claims at greatness! 😛

    Sorry Annie I do not, usually I go to posts and publish or schedule. Maybe it’s under draft?

    If you haven’t already, make sure your calendar is on the right date. It usually only does that when the calendar is on a future date.
