There doesn't seem to be a forum for discussing cron issues.
I'm working on a 'timed release of resources' module which uses cron. In the NEWMODULE code I downloaded from moodle.org for my new module, in version.php is the following line:
$module->cron = 0; // Period for cron to check this module (secs)
What does "Period for cron to check this module (secs)" mean, and is it used?
