For 2: A cronjob by definition is not triggered by a visitor, but by time. I agree that future posts don't work the way they should, which I assume is what you are asking about.
i haven't tried 1.1.6 or 1.2 or 1.3 in detail yet
what i mean paging is:for a long post, you could divide into many pages, at any point, up to the author. (not comment paging)
yes, consider in web environment, without touching the OS, how would you simulate the cron effect? ...one solution is to let the job to be triggered by visitor who visit your page in the nearest time. e.g. you have a job to be run at 14:30, so the FIRST visitor request your page after 14:30 should trigger that job.
i am working on a forum called discuz, they have a quite good implmentations on these kind of cron functions (with proper caching, the checking could be very efficient)
btw, should we have a 1.3 area in this forum for discussing?
