Informations about WP Cron

Please remember – after deactivation of this plugin added Schedules will be not available. Added Tasks will still work unless they use your custom schedule.

Important – WordPress Cron is depended on the User. WP Cron fires only on the page visit so it can be inaccurate.

Plugin supports i18n. If you would like to translate it grab a .po file, translate it and send it to me for plugin update. I’ll be thankful 🙂

Tasks and schedules will be still working after plugin deactivation/removal?

Tasks yes. Schedules no.

What is the task hook?

It’s used for action. For example if your hook is hook_name you’ll need to add in PHP:
‘add_action(‘hook_name’, ‘function_name’);’


Found it awesome!

I used to use Debug Bar Cron, but found this one wonderfully good.

With the control of manual execution, adding/deleting tasks, and the timezone-specific date-time it’s awesome top to bottom.

Would love to if a column of recorded last execution time, it will help debugging any time slipping issue.

Awesome work, keep up the good work.
Oh, I like the bug plugin too. 🙂

Simple and useful

Great tool for reviewing and managing cron jobs. Helped me to find and fix some issues. Like it!

works like a charm!

if you schedule your own cron jobs with wp_schedule_event, then you can fire it with this plugin for better debugging
