Support » Plugin: Simply Static » Nothing happens after clicking on Generate Static Files

  • Resolved aaflatooni


    I have installed the plugin and in the diagnostics it passes all the checks.
    When I click on Generate Static Files nothing happens.
    (not sure if it is relevant but I am using WordPress hosted on GoDaddy).
    I have also enabled the debug and the following is what is outputted in the debug.log

    [2021-03-23 14:18:43] [class-ss-plugin.php:258] Received request to start generating a static archive

  • Same. On GoDaddy as well. Slow… Was hoping this might help

    Same issue also for me, I tested on different hosting provider called Infomaniak, on some sites there it works but not in others.

    Hey @aaflatooni, @pacemaker58, @arditmorina,

    make sure you are using the WordPress Cron (or at least make sure it’s enabled) as it’s required for Simply Static to work.

    I assume that some providers block this (or replace it with their own solution).

    Best regards,



    @patrickposner Thanks for the support, yes I had disabled WP Cron by myself and added an external cron solution, by reverting to default wp cron it worked. Thanks again.
