Cron Jobes Issue

  • jerrysmith212


    hello, first of all i would like to thank the developers for their brilliant work and power full tool with great features, I’ve installed and started begin to transform my site to new look with new features but i’m facing problems with cron jobes. i’m not sure if this problem is related to plugin or my new theme but since problem occurred I’ve already disabled buddypress and reverted to my old theme, can anyone please guide me if buddypress has anything to do with this or maybe its my theme.
    Really thanks for your time

  • Hi @jerrysmith212

    Thanks for the kind words! BuddyPress does *use* a cron task for only one thing — if Activity component is active and you also have the Akismet plugin enabled, then there’s an integration between the two, and our cron task periodically tidies up old metadata.

    We do nothing that I know of that affects WordPress’ cron system, let alone something that might break things.

    (To clarify: we use WordPress’ “scheduled cron” API, like all plugins, not actual “Linux cron” jobs).

    Further to what @djpaul said, make sure you have DISABLE_WP_CRON set to false in your wp-config.php file.

    define( 'DISABLE_WP_CRON', false );
