    I'm interested the most in broken link checking, but google PR would be cool....

    I'm using free version, newest one updated cron available now on the site and i just can't make it work. I'm sure server supports outgoing connections from php (tried file function - works)

    in cron.php I edited the path to config.inc.php, checked the neded two things in configuration, the ones in cronjob conguration and link checking and tried to run several times cron.php from the browser. It outputs nothing, but I suppose it's okay, but it really can't see one broken link which I've put intentionally in database... it just don't reports it in broken link section of admin panel.

    Besides, it is said somewhere that cron.php checks for 50 links at a time? So I'm asking where it is memorized which links are checked, because it is needed not to check them next time, and go circular through links...

    I must be missing something here... people please help. It's nice script and I'm seriously considering buyng a pro version, but I must see the things are working first...

    btw... this is my site: http://dir.vizio.biz

    thanks a lot...

    Cron doesn't work pyc. Many of us are waiting on a fix.

    are there any explanation why it is not working, maybe i could fix it alone and send better version here? it's not so much of a trouble fixing it, because it's really no complication actually...

    No one from support has yet acknowledged the problem.

    Yes... hit it with your browser at www.yoursite.com/dir/admin/cron.php but it still won't work as the problem is with the script itself and not whether it's run manually or by cron tab.
