Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files  


This is such a small but useful mod that I decided to give it away free. This mod will replace your sheduled task image code at the bottom of your pages and run your sheduled tasks via an AJAX call.

AJAX is asyncronous and offers true background running of sheduled tasks. This does not change anything with the actual tasks or the scripts that run them. It merely replaces the method that initiates the running of those scripts.

There are no template edits of any kind. Simply upload the files to your forumhome directory and import the product xml file.

This should work in any vb or custom script in any directory.
Full support will only be given at vbmodder.com

I will support it here as time permits.


Enjoy

Don't forget to click install if you use it.




******************************************
Do not use this with vb 3.5x! There is a difference in the cron table.
The 3.5x version can be found here

Because they didn't think of it?

That is what this entire site and a zillion other mod sites exist for. To supply options and improvements that vBulletin doesn't have.

Just checking in. I'm going to assume from the continued installs and silence that this is continuing to work in vBulletin 3.62? If not please let me know.

Re: vB AJAX Cron

This runs the cron scheduler, so no. If you want to runs something in the sheduler it needs to be file that is setup for vBulletin.

Thanks! I was wondering about the whole cron thingy and this seems like a more efficient method.

Re: vB AJAX Cron

3.6.3 .. I installed this to combat the fact that zoints tags look in /tags/*tagname*/ for cron.php .. but it doesn't appear to have done anything.



Don't get me wrong, I love the idea, and have had no issues with other things calling cron.php, but the Zoint Tags thing is driving me mad!

Re: vB AJAX Cron

I don't understand the problem Kall. Are you saying the Zoints tag system breaks the scheduled task system somehow? I am not familiar with that mod so I am not sure what it does other than create a tag system.

Re: vB AJAX Cron

I see you are using a page compressor. It may be removing empty comment tags. In which case it will remove the vBulletin default code marker and this, and possibly default cron, won't be able to work.

Re: vB AJAX Cron

Yeah.. the vBSEO Content Cleaner is what I am using.

Hmm.. well, what appears to be happening is: Zoints tags looks in its own (mod_rewrited) directory for cron.php. It's not there, and I get error messages.

Cron works everywhere else (and still does, since installing this Modification), but I am still seeing the error from the Zoints Tags looking for cron in the wrong place.

Re: vB AJAX Cron

So you are saying zoints has it's own cron setup.

Not at all, it just tries to call $cronimage from /forum/tags/cron.php instead of /forum/cron.php...because that's the "directory" the viewer is in at the time.


*edit* /forum/tags/*tag name/cron.php is also called.
