Improved Cron WordPress Plugin
Improved Cron WordPress Plugin | 29 KB
WP Cron doesn,t work until someone visits your site. If your job is scheduled to run at 1pm but there are no visitors until 6pmthen your job will start at 6pm. Improved Cron solves this by faking a visit to your site every minute.
This is not the typical WP Cron plugin. Improved Cron spawns a PHP background process that continues running independently even when no one is visiting your site. It sits in sleep mode and every 60 seconds ‘wakes up’ and forces WP Cron to run. The plugin also has a keep-alive system in case the background process dies for some reason.
This plugin is intended for anyone who needs their WordPress cron jobs to run reliably and on time. For most peopleit’s much easier to install a plugin than it is to set up a cron job. In addition improving the reliability of WP Cronthe plugin also provides insight into the WP Cron schedule in the same way that the free Cron-View/Cron-Gui plugin does.
