I received notification of the news item I posted so it appears that the notifications are working. I also posted a new video about an hour ago and am waiting to see if there is a notification about that. I will post that result when I get it unless it comes during the early morning hours. It is 5:15 PM here in California as I post this.
I just noticed that although I am receiving the notifications of changes to the website through autonews, the notifications are coming 3 days after the change. The admin settings show that notifications should be sent after 4 hours. Do you have any idea why this is happening?
I sent an email from the website and received the email almost instantly, so the problem is not the sendmeil function.
It's hard to say, but one guess is that the 4 days is the time when the site have first been accessed after sending was due.
In order to send the mails, it is checked when the site is accessed whether mail are due to be sent. The reason is, that you need some php code to run, to allow the code to send mails.
This way of sending mails is the default setting in autonews. However, I have also built in the option to use cron. cron is a server feature, allowing code to be executed at sepcific times. Few web-hotels provides this feature. However, even if your web-host does not support cron, you may use it by subscribing to an external cron service. cron.de is providing it for free (or used to at least). Unfortunately it is in german.
But first, I suggest you verify that this is a likely reason.
To make sure I understand, if no one is visiting the website, there will be no notification being sent out? If the admin is set to send out notification within 4 hours of the change, would that not count as visiting the site? Is there a specific number of times that the website has to be visited?
In response to your question, it is quite possible that the 3 days is the time in between someone checking into the site.
I have looked for it on many sites with no success. Perhaps not many users were looking for it. Is it possible for you to re-zip it so that I can upload it to another site that I have started?
