    No, for now the time is the "Time now" shown in the queue. We will be bringing timezone selection into it in the future though.

    The times are UTC, and if you put the end time less than the start time, it won't post.
    I tried setting it to 13-6, which was 7am to midnight locally for me (CST), and nothing happened.

    OK thanks, folks. I don't understand the point about the 'Time Now' shown in the queue. I don;' see that. But if I know that it is UTC and check what that is, then I can work with it. I am on GMT.

    Ok, I still have a problem with the queue. I have tried a few times to set time parameters for the release of my queued posts. But it never works. It only work when I set the parameters as 0-23 hours. I am on GMT and as I understand it, if I want to release the posts between 11 and 23 I should simply use those settings in the queue? Well, it does not work. I have tried different time settings and, as I say, the only way it will work is if the setting is 0-23.

    Is this a fault or am I doing something wrong?

    The system isn't great. I'm sure it will be improved in time

    Are you using

    https://bdsmlr.com/queue

    or 

    https://bdsmlr.com/queuev2 ?

    The first one seems buggy.

    I am using v2. Never tried the first. And v2 is certainly not allowing me to schedule posts.

    How many posts are you trying to publish per day? 

    And queue indeed is far from perfect but it will be improved a lot in the future.

    I discussed this topic with the OP via chat, hope it helped. In doing so, I think I now have a simple way of explaining how to use queue v2.

    • The first/beginning hour set must always be less than than the second/ending hour.

    The queue clock does not allow an interval to cross over 12am/00.00 (23:59 etc) UTC. It was/is the same way on Tumblr- only there, if you try to set a queue interval that crosses over 12am (EST on their clock) the settings default back to what is 00:00-23:59 on a 24h clock.. their way of letting you know your interval won’t work-by forcing a 23:59 hour interval that will.

    Depending on where you are in the world, you may need to set two intervals per day to cover the hours you wish to have queued posts go out. Hth

    Sorry, I did not realise that there was a question asked in this by Support. It is hard to be exact on how many posts I schedule. I would think it would be around 1 per 30 minutes over 6 hours = 12.

     

    Thanks Billy. I did have some success with what you advised.
