Thanks for taking the time to explain that.
When you set Incoming Links cron type to WordPress Cron. The cron events are scheduled as usual, even if DISABLE_WP_CRON is set to TRUE! But as long as DISABLE_WP_CRON is set to TRUE you'll always get that alert/error message.
If I understand correctly, the plugin will run perfectly with
- Incoming Links cron type set to WordPress Cron
DISABLE_WP_CRON is set to
TRUE in wp-config.php
- The following cron job run to trigger WordPress Cron:
wget -q -O - http://yourwebsite.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron >/dev/null 2>&1
Since it's running perfectly, it seems counter-intuitive to have an error message.
I know the plugin is in beta, so will give my recommendation. I think that in this situation, anyone who is manually configuring WordPress with wp-config.php will understand that setting that option (
DISABLE_WP_CRON) will lead to negative consequences if they don't set-up their own cron job. I don't think people would set that switch by accident. So I would recommend removing that error message. That's just my recommendation - as you can see I'm not an IT expert; I'm just an end user.
