Support » Plugin: WP-Cron Control » Clashes with events plug-in

  • I’ve got this working fine on one website, after reading other posts in the support section – disable WP Cron in wp-config, and use the php version of the cron job so as to be able to disable email notifications. With that success, I tried the plug-in on a sister site, which is set up the same apart from some custom post types. Unfortunately, WP-Cron Control prevents the input of dates into the event organiser custom post type, something of a deal breaker. Posted here in case it is a help to others experiencing the problem.

  • Hi volresource,

    Just to confirm what you’ve reported. I’m the developer behind Event Organiser and I recently had a customer report this exact same problem. WP Cron Control defines DOING_CRON to be true and Event Organiser’s callback on save_post doesn’t run on a cron job.

    That in hindsight was wrong, and due to some over-zealous early returns, and the incorrect assumption that an event would never be updated via a cron job. Although that’s evidently rare, it’s not a reasonable assumption to make. As such the next update (probably 2.9.1) will be fix this.
