1.6.0 Released – Action requred if you use external cron

Postie 1.6 has been released. This is the first in a series of significant internal improvements to make sure Postie is doing things “the WordPress way” and to allow easier Add On creation.

New Cron URL

Remote cron jobs need to update the URL used to kick off a manual email check. The new URL is http://<mysite>/wp-cron.php
Accessing http://<mysite>/wp-content/plugins/postie/get_mail.php will now receive a 403 error and a message stating what the new URL should be.


  • Updated remote cron url to be more compatible with WordPress
  • The Postie menu has been moved out of the Settings menu to the top level
  • Tested with WordPress 4.0
