can't see posts after logging out

May 6, 2014 at 1:09 PM
Hi, I just set up a new 2.9 install. I'm able to log in and use all the functionality, but when I log out no posts are visible. My name in the AuthorList is visible however and shows 2 posts and the categories I created are visible, but RecentPosts shows none.

I've tried a few searches but couldn't find anything related to this problem. I also tried unpublishing and republishing the posts.

Also, I switched from XML to a SQL DB - but everything else seems to be working ok.

Ideas of where to start looking?

Ok, I found a few posts related to this issue. The problem is that I'm writing posts 10 time zones ahead of my server - I honestly don't get the underlying logic of why they weren't showing up given that I'm writing posts "in the future" relative to my server. There is a "server time offset" setting under settings -> basic. I eventually just stuck -24 in there and my posts showed up.

I'm going to add a feature request as you shouldn't have to spend time googling for solutions for this kind of thing.
