Scheduled emails do not send

Hi Andy,

I've been meaning to ask this one for a while. When I schedule an email to send, either via the comms page or via the weekly Rota send it simply does not go out. If I manually send it then it goes just fine. I'm feeling a little lost on the troubleshooting side. Would this be a plugin thing or an email utility thing? I am not using mailchimp.

Scheduled email uses WP cron, which is like UNIX cron but triggers next time the website is viewed after the time wanted.
So not super accurate, if not many hits.

I use a plugin called WP Control to see what is going on.

There's no known bugs, so start to see what is in WP cron and trigger manually to see if it sends

If you are finding the plugin useful, please subscribe to the app - it's free for your congregation to use and only £9.99pm for a church subscription
