Please add a cron util or module to the Zikula core or something similar.
Mark West wrote one years ago that we used successfully called Scheduler.
Can you point me to this module; I can't find it...
cron is dead easy to implement, I already discussed with with @jusuff
Marks stuff was for Zikula 1.0 and it would require just as much work to make something new as it would to convert, and now that we have a event system, a lot more simple too.
A simple question: Let's say you set a pseudo cronjob to 'every hour'. Right after you added this job, you visit the website and it is executed. Then for five hours nobody comes to your website. Then you visit your website again. Shall the cronjob now be executed one time only or shall it be executed five times?
@cmfcmf with the amount of bots crawling the web it's not possible that a site doesnt get a visitor for 5 hours, and to answer the question, the assumption would be the visit frequency must be higher than the cron frequency.
