#37769 closed enhancement (fixed)

Clarify descriptions for Cron API functions

Reported by: johnbillion's profile johnbillion Owned by: wonderboymusic's profile wonderboymusic
Milestone: 4.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Cron API Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: docs Cc:


The $timestamp parameter for the various WP-Cron functions expects a Unix timestamp (ie. UTC time), not a timestamp but this isn't made super clear.

In addition, the general inline docs for the cron functions needs some improvement.
