Yes it sends emails automatically based on whether there are new stories
published in the last 3 days or not. Setting the cron is a little messy
since the cron must run at exactly that time (starting at 1:00 am I believe)
and every 15 min from there on up to 6:00 AM or so... good for those heavy
traffic websites though... There are bugs in it. For instance, if one
happens to add a news during the time that the emails are sent, the emails
are re-send everytime... So you could endup with 4 copies of the exact same
message... cause for it? go figure, I have not dig that deep into it but I
>The rewrite is welcome for anyone that wants to volunteer.
I would love to volunteer for this since I have been working on the previous
two cronmail files. However, I thought that the mailing list was moving away
from doing it ourselves to passing this to mailman or a real mailing list
manager... In any case, if the cronmail is going to stay and the mailing
list will also stay under phpslash, then I would like to use what we have so
far and tap into the classes to use those functions to write the emails
nicely. Also, to reinstate the HTML email functionality since I had to turn
that off before since nobody complaint about it or uses it that I know of
Let me know what you think...
