I write a new post and publish it. I realize I did not check any of the syndication checkboxes in the widget. So I check the box to use Bridgy to send to Twitter. After updating the post, I wait a …
I don’t have caching set up. The problem was I had restructured my docker networks, and cut external communication for php-fpm .

@asuh @dougbeal Investigating a few theories. Do either of you use caching?
I currently do not use a caching plugin or have anything set up to cache.
Verified this issue still exists for me. Published latest note without Brid.gy syndication to Twitter, updated post with checkbox ticked to syndicate, no action taken.
EDIT: Well, it looks like I’m Mr. Impatient here. It just took a lot longer than I was expecting, approximately 7 minutes.
I will monitor this on my next published posts to see what happens by trying the same technique. If results are good, I’ll close this out.
That’s WP Cron for you.
@asuh Did you encounter the same problem again?
@dshanske On my site, the behaviour of the syndication option seems curious:
– I check the _Twitter via Bridgy_ checkbox.
– I publish the post.
– Next after the screen has reloaded, the checkbox appears unchecked again.
– Nothing gets syndicated.
I think I can exclude WP Cron from the range of possible causes (even though I am using a caching plugin) because there’s quite a lot of activity in wp-admin on my site.
Appreciate any ideas on what to test, totally at the end of my wits at the moment.
The box always appears unchecked…that is designed behavior.
Was this post originally a draft?

Oh, thanks, this helps! I’m in a rabbit hole with Cloudflare, will report back when I know more.
This is a good reminder, I had forgotten to follow up. I tried this again, having saved the post as a draft before publishing and syndicating to Twitter. It took about 2 minutes but I saw my syndicated tweet pointing back to my original post.
I think my original issue is solved (or was just a case of a slow cron job) so I’m going to close this out.
