Imports Aren’t Running Automatically

If you’ve got your import(s) setup but they aren’t running automatically it’s likely that WordPress cron events aren’t firing. It’s also possible that none of WordPress’s cron events are firing, not just the imports, so it’s worth resolving this. To check this you can:

  1. Install and activate the plugin ‘WP Crontrol‘.
  2. Navigate to ‘Tools > Cron Events‘.
  3. If cron events aren’t firing you’ll see a red warning/error displayed and the reason. Normally this is a server configuration change required such as enabling cURL or similar. An alternative is use Alternative Cron or a Linux cron job.

The best people to help with this are your hosting company so we recommend that you get in touch with them if you’re experiencing issues relating to this.

Getting automated tasks running is not just good for getting the imports running, but also means other WordPress automated tasks are executed as these perform a variety of tasks (clean up old revisions etc).
