    No - the post should be posted to their blog when someone visits their blog after the publish date/time.

    This is broken for me, too. Since v2.9.1.1.

    If I edit /wp-includes/cron.php

    ...
    wp_remote_post( $cron_url, array('timeout' => 0.01, 'blocking' => false, 'sslverify' => apply_filters('https_local_ssl_verify', true)) );
    ...

    and change it to:
    wp_remote_post( $cron_url, array('timeout' => 1.11, 'blocking' => false, 'sslverify' => apply_filters('https_local_ssl_verify', true)) );

    WP cron starts to work again. But I'm not sure if this isn't crashing WPmu due to the timeout being too high?

    Does we need setup cron job also at our cpanel to make Schedule Post work?

    gmchun: No, WP/PHP is handling this on its own.

    This is happening for me as well. Is there a fix for this?

    Running out the door for the night but this has been discussed at some length on the regular wp forums. Someone may want to check to see if a solution has been provided:
