It doesn’t work, period.
Seriously, I sent this to support after wrestling with it for hours:
These are the following things I’ve tried that have not worked:
*Setting “post one post every day” with a time frame of 7am-8am.
* Same thing, midnight-8am
* Same thing, 8am-5pm
In every case, nothing posted, the queue posts are still sitting there.
Setting an image from Flickr to go at a scheduled time (preview shows
incorrect image, clicking “schedule post” results in “ERROR UPLOADING IMAGE”
even though I am grabbing the image via a URL).
I don’t see anything about this in the help section. I know it’s a free
service and I shouldn’t complain, but this is pretty basic functionality,
and a number of people I’ve talked to can’t get it to work. What are we all
The reply, a few minutes later:
Please know that our developers are aware of the queue issues and will fix them as soon as they can.
Now, I’m not going to grouse too much about a free service but how about a note informing people that they’re not stupid or crazy, the thing just plain doesn’t work at the moment, despite it happily letting you choose all kinds of different, equally pointless options? How about some indication of this in their online help documents (which, like so many things these days, opt for “folksy and informal” instead of “actually useful”.)
