Configuration page for wp-cron jobs
|Reported by:||Otto42||Owned by:|
Add a configuration page (admin only) for the actions to be performed by wp-cron. This page will let users view these actions as well as remove them.
This is necessary because I've noticed some plugins ("Cronless Postie", for example) starting to use the wp-cron functions, but not removing their wp-cron jobs when the plugins are disabled. While this is a problem with these plugins, to be sure, there is currently no way to disable or remove a "rogue" wp-cron job that a plugin scheduled but never unscheduled.
In extreme cases, activating and deactivating a plugin repeatedly can cause multiple repeating jobs to be inserted into the wp-cron job list, causing excessive load when it tries to run these jobs multiple times. This can kill a site and use a lot of bandwidth for no reason that is obvious to the user or the host, making them blame Wordpress for "being slow" and such. Visibility of the wp-cron job actions would provide a way to fix this as well as point out the likely source of the bad plugin.
