Cronjob Scheduler allows you to create custom WordPress tasks that are automatically triggered on a schedule you define. The motivation behind building this plugin was out of frustration with other similar plugins that claim to do the same thing.
Cronjob Scheduler allows you to run frequent tasks reliably and timely without anyone having to visit your site, all you need is at least 1 action and a Unix Crontab schedule!
This plugin was designed and built by Motocom. It is designed to make easy work of creating and managing custom cron jobs. If this plugin has been helpful for you, then please donate to keep our WordPress plugin projects running!
- Can I create my own custom schedules?
That’s the whole idea of the plugin, you setup your schedules and the tasks you want to run and the plugin will handle the rest!
- How do I create a task to run?
Just create a new function in your theme files (or somewhere else you will remember) and create an action with the same name.
- Can I run an event at any time?
Sure, just go to the Cronjob Scheduler interface and hit the
Runbutton against the task.
It does not work on the latest version of wp.
