Daily summary is not sent

Hello folks,

MainWP is configured to email me a daily summary of all upcoming updates.
From my point of view the settings are correct, but I don’t get the summary every day and I can’t find an explanation as to why.

Sometimes an email comes, but not the next day. Not even if other new updates were added to those from yesterday.

Can you explain to me why that is?

I used to use iThemes Sync and am considering switching to MainWP because it offers many more benefits, but daily emails are a very important feature for me.

Thanks for help!


Hi @pixzilla

Welcome to the MainWP community!

Scheduled emails such as Daily Digest depend on the core feature of WordPress, WP-Cron, to work.

However, if there is no network activity on the website, such as you logging into the Dashboard site, WP-Cron will not trigger, and the cron jobs will not run.

If you want to make sure that WP-Cron jobs are regularly triggered on your MainWP Dashboard, you can add your Dashboard site as a monitor to an uptime service such as Uptime Robot.

The Uptime Robot will ping your dashboard site regularly and make sure that all scheduled events are occurring.


Hi Bojan,

Thanks for your answer.
I set up a cron job with my hoster especially for WP Cron to call wp-cron.php every 5 minutes.

I will ask the hoster.
Thanks for the hint!
