WordPress: Debug mode

In Smartcat Translation Manager workflow, new translation submission and completed translation import are processed by WordPress CRON service.

CRON is a task scheduler that starts automatically according to specified intervals. Since a PHP script works only when it receives a request, the script has to be run by a service. Wordpress built-in CRON service works only when users visit the website. When there are no visits then tasks are not been processed.

In order to have continuous translation process you need to set up a special CRON job.

Below you can find links leading to instructions on how to add a CRON job at the most popular panels:

Use the following command when adding a CRON job:

wget http://example.com/wp-сron.php
