I've been using this on all my sites for a while now, it really helps to simplify the creation of a custom cron schedule via cpanel.

Good!

works for me
By , for WP 4.1.1

I can't understand why so few reviews this has been very helpful and smoothed out CPU loading on a site with few visitors. The added security it brings is great and now the server processor won't get loaded through multiple php processes running for cron.
Thanks!

Works as simply as described.

It works exactly and as simply as described.

The website performance is also improved when the wp-config.php file is changed to disable the WordPress virtual cron triggering on web page requests. This stops the usual problem of multiple executions of the same cron triggers due to page load race wars. Excellent.

In wp-config.php file:
define( 'DISABLE_WP_CRON', true );

Web Hosting Hub does not allow wget, so use curl in the cPanel Cron Job line instead:
'curl -A "Chrome 30.0" --silent "http://www.domain.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron&secretkeygoeshere" > /dev/null 2>&1'
Note: The url has double quotes around it otherwise the ampersand that is a url parameters seems to interfere with the curl parameter syntax.

Works, but do not show all jobs
By , for WP 3.5.2

Installs and works with 3.5.2, but does not show all jobs. Had better success with Cron View.
