View, create and check cronjobs doing http-URL- or Shortcode-requests.
With Get URL Cron you can
* add, edit, delete cronjobs: request http-URLs or WordPress-Shortcodes at defined times and with several intervals
* check the retrieved result on a required string or JSON-field (to be sure the http-URL- / Shortcode-request was ok)
* retry the http-URL- / Shortcode-request several times on failures
* display all cronjobs in the WordPress-Installation (also those independent of Get URL Cron)
* manually execute Get URL Cron-cronjobs
* Log all requests: 1st Logentry is that the htpp-URL- / Shortcode-request is a try, 2nd Logentry is success or failirure of the request
* send mails for each http-URL- / Shortcode-request: start trying and result of request
