I’ve added a new plugin to the directory called Trigger Scheduled Events, which does pretty much what it says on the tin. With it, you can view a list of all events scheduled by WP-Cron and run any of them instantly instead of waiting until the next time the event is scheduled to be fired.
WP-Cron is useful because it allows you to schedule events to happen later using the
wp_schedule_event() function, but during development this can lead to a lot of waiting around to see if your code works. Trigger Scheduled Events gets around this problem by allowing you to run your events on demand.
You can download the plugin through the Add New menu from your WordPress admin or you can download it from the plugin directory. If you’d like to make suggestions for improvements, you can do that over at the plugin’s GitHub page.
