I know there are a lot of topics about notifications already. But I haven't seen one like the problem I'm having.
If the user check the "immediate" frequency, the notification sends out just fine. But if they check "daily," which is the default, then they don't get it --- or so I thought, until a couple of days ago, my friend said they got one that summarizes all the activities since they joined.
I know in many of the posts, it came down to the cron job. I had the system guy at my hosting company (HostGator) set up the cron for me. So I assume it's running fine. This is the line they set up:
php -q /httpdocs/ow_cron/run.php
What's that other mechanism that control the waiting-and-combing? Perhaps mine is not working right....
By the way, how do I change the default frequency for a new user?
Any input is appreciated!!
