I am using a plugin to send emails to a relatively large email list. Because we have a low per-hour email threshold from our host we have to use a setting in the plugin to throttle the emails down to only a certain number every hour. I am assuming that the plugin uses wp-cron to accomplish this. I have tried finding documentation on wp-cron but the only substantial information I have been able to find is that it requires a page view to run.
- Is an RSS feed being pinged enough to trigger a "page view" and therefore wp-cron?
- How long after a page view will wp-cron run? (e.g. if last page view is at 6:59p.m. will cron scheduled for 7pm run?)
- What happens if a cron job is missed?(No one visits website all day until 7:03 p.m. Is 7p.m. cron job run?)
