Cron Jobs - found something cool (I think) (6 posts)

    Hey guys,
    I've been trying to get the cron job things working for posting by email but can't seem to do it.
    I found this though:
    http://www.bitfolge.de/pseudocron-en.html

    It says that it can do the cron job through php - which seems pretty cool to me. I'm still trying to get it working but I thought it might be useful for someone.

    Did any of the cron ideas on Blog_by_Email work for you?

    Hey,
    I tried them but I can't seem to figure them out - I understand the cron programming - but I'm not sure how to actually get it working -eg. where to put it on my webspace

    I also tried the plugin- I can't seem to figure out wget in order to initiate the cron.

    wp actually has a pseudo-cron built into it. I know many plugins use it, and it's used by the core for things like pinging update services and trackback/pingback stuff.
