Solved: 10 Years, 8 Months, 3 Weeks ago [How To?] Enable Task Manager
#1
Solved: 10 Years, 8 Months, 3 Weeks ago
Hi,

In the process of upgrading a 1.4 installation to 1.6 but can't get Task Manager to automatically process tasks as expected.

System Health always shows the next 3 tasks to be run as *really* old dates

Mass Mail 2009-09-30, 09:25
Half-hourly User Cleanup 2009-09-30, 09:30
Hourly Cleanup 2009-09-30, 10:00

I've been trying to get this to run in connection with the Promotions script - see http://community.mybb.com/thread-55904-p...#pid573205 for settings etc.

AFAIK the Task Manager has never worked properly - can anyone advise?

Thanks,
olly

I assume when you manually run a task it doesn't reset the dates??

I've just manually ran all tasks and the Next 3 is now showing sensible data i.e. Promotions due at 13:30 - should actually be 14:20 but that's another problem...

Just passed 13/14:20 though and the Next 3 haven't changed:

Promotion System 2010-09-14, 13:20
Run the Spammer Script 2010-09-14, 13:20
Mass Mail 2010-09-14, 13:25

It'll only run if someone's visiting your forum. Also make sure you've got this in your footer template: {$task_image}

I'm working off a staging forum so there is only one visitor i.e. me - is this ok?
Had a look at the template and it's not listed - where should I add? (just added before last div)

What's with the time difference anway and how do I fix?

Thanks for the excellent responses!

If you're not actually visiting the forum itself (as opposed to the ACP) it won't trigger the tasks. Although the cause here will be that code not being in the template, without that there's nothing to trigger the tasks even when you do visit. If you put it just before {$auto_dst_detection} it'll be OK; by default, this is the footer template:

			<br />
			<div class="bottommenu">
				<div class="float_right">{$lang_select}</div>
				<div>
					<span class="smalltext"><a href="{$mybb->settings['contactlink']}">{$lang->bottomlinks_contactus}</a> | <a href="{$mybb->settings['homeurl']}">{$mybb->settings['homename']}</a> | <a href="#top">{$lang->bottomlinks_returntop}</a> | <a href="#content">{$lang->bottomlinks_returncontent}</a> | <a href="<archive_url>">{$lang->bottomlinks_litemode}</a> | <a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/misc.php?action=syndication">{$lang->bottomlinks_syndication}</a></span>
				</div>
			</div>
			</div>
		<hr class="hidden" />
			<div id="copyright">
				<div id="debug"><debugstuff></div>

When this is sorted, we'll see what the times do.

That's worked - tasks seem to be working fine now.

Was also missing the dst code too so have added this and now seems to be working - went back and changed my User CP to GMT with auto-detect and it gets time right (which it didn't before). Time displayed for Next 3 Tasks is still showing one hour behind though...

Also, there's shading underneath my footer menu which wasn't there before - here's the full template:

<br />
			<div class="bottommenu"><span class="smalltext"><a href="{$mybb->settings['homeurl']}">{$mybb->settings['homename']}</a> | <a href="http://news.linn.co.uk">News</a> | <a href="http://blogs.linn.co.uk">Blogs</a> | <a href="http://docs.linn.co.uk">Docs</a> | <a href="http://www.linnrecords.com">Records</a> | <a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/member.php?action=register">Terms of Usage</a> | <a href="{$mybb->settings['contactlink']}">{$lang->bottomlinks_contactus}</a> | <a href="#top">{$lang->bottomlinks_returntop}</a> | <a href="<archive_url>">{$lang->bottomlinks_litemode}</a> | <a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/misc.php?action=syndication">{$lang->bottomlinks_syndication}</a></span>
			</div>
			</div>
		</div>
		<hr class="hidden" />
			<div id="copyright">
                        <div id="debug"><debugstuff></div>

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help - I inherited this forum admin and the template was obviously never correct

Can you provide a screenshot or a link to your forum?

If you've not intentionally edited your footer template, go to edit it again but click Options > Revert to Original, see what it looks like then.
