Schedule cron jobs with WordPress

A cron job let’s you automaticly execute a function at a specific interval – WordPress can do this for you with the wp_schedule_event() function. Here is how you can schedule a hook which will be executed by the WordPress actions core on a specific interval (in this example it will execute the cron job each hour), specified by you. The action will trigger when someone visits your WordPress site, if the scheduled time has passed.

Instructions
Add this code to your functions.php file.
