  • I placed the link in quotes to prevent the error, but it still appears to do nothing except load the link like a normal web page. Any help appreciated!

    I think the problem lies in line 103 of warm-cache.php. It uses the command wp_generate_password() to create the variable plugin_warm_cache_api, which is the warm_cache=URL . wp_generate_password() by default uses special characters to be more secure, but these characters don’t seem to work with cron or in a URL format in general.
    In my case, % and ) caused either cron to fail, or the URL to just resolve my homepage. You’ve got a whole cl&sterf*ck.

    Anyway, I changed my plugin_warm_cache_api variable manually in the database, and added $special_chars = false to the wp_generate_password() command for good measure. Seems to have done the trick.

    add_option('plugin_warm_cache_api',wp_generate_password($special_chars = false));

    Calling the plugin should be done using a cronjob on your webhost/webhosting-controlpanel.

    The call you should do is a wget or a curl call. the commands for that differ from operating system (like debian,centos) or controlpanel (like direct admin/plesk)
    Examples and

    Placing quotes will help in special characters, I will update the plugin to delete those characters.

    If you copy paste and open the “page” you should see something like this:
