  • I’m having trouble getting an event schedule in WordPress. I’ve followed the documentatation, but when I check the event using wp_next_scheduled it echo’s the time the event should have fired the first time.

    Here’s my code:

    $scheduledtime = wp_next_scheduled('dm_update_hook');
                $formatscheduledtime = date("F j, Y, g:i a", $scheduledtime);
                echo "<p>Next Update: " . $formatscheduledtime . "</p>";
                echo "<p>Current Time: " . date("F j, Y, g:i a") . "</p>";
                if (!wp_next_scheduled('dm_update_hook')) {
                    wp_schedule_event(time(), 'hourly', 'dm_update_hook' );
                    echo "Event Scheduled";
                add_action( 'dm_update_hook', 'dm_update_function' ); 
                function dm_update_function() {
                    wp_mail('', 'Test', 'This is a test.');
                    wp_mail('', 'Testing', 'Test 2.');

    Notice how the Next Update is previous to the current time. The emails are never sent, even on first run. Any ideas what I’m doing wrong? Thanks!
