There are a variety of cron plugins out there. None did all that I needed it to do to aid my development. So I wrote my own cron manager plugin. It’s handy to have with any plugin that gas a cron job. It is also handy when developing and testing any cron jobs.
- Flag if cron action missing ( a common mistake developers make)
- Show arguments or parameters
- Show time usefully in the timezone of the blog, not the server, tasks grouped by time slot
- Really and Truly Kill a Cron Job (as much as one can, some are immortal!)
- Run a job right now (or rather at next cron trigger)
- Give you a cron trigger link so you can see any errors that may come to the screen
