Chris found a possible bug or broken link in my profile > my settings > email notifications > individual group email settings > go to my groups.
Around a year ago, the link in the words “my groups” used to take us to a fatal error message, and now, it takes us to a screen that says “User’s Profile ….. [user type]”.

Thanks, Ed. I’ve created a ticket to track the issue. https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/commons-in-a-box/issues/347
Do you need a separate bug report or issue on Github that this particular cron job isn’t working by default? Are there any other OpenLab cron jobs that are missing from this list?
For the short term, I will add it manually from WP Crontrol.
Thanks, Ed. It looks like the cron job is not scheduled. It would be called
bp_groupblogs_cron. If you want to create it manually using wp-crontrol, it should work.
/wp-admin/tools.php?page=crontrol_admin_manage_page&action=new-cron. Set it to ‘hourly’.
After installing WP Crontrol, there are only 12 cron jobs on my OpenLab site:
wp_privacy_delete_old_export_files, Once Hourly
wp_version_check, Twice Daily
wp_update_plugins, Twice Daily
wp_update_themes, Twice Daily
update_netowrk_counts, Twice Daily
ass_digest_event, Once…[Read more]
I just wanted to let you know, that at least for external sites, that is not our experience at all. Specifically for external sites that are syncing through RSS, our lived experience is that until someone specifically visits that group, no emails or notifications go out.

> for a very busy site (like a mature Commons in a Box OpenLab) the cron might be running too often!
This isn’t quite true. WP’s pseudo-cron is throttled in such a way that it can’t be run “too often”, and in any case, the individual jobs will only be run on schedule. But your general point is correct: on low-traffic sites, certain jobs may not…[Read more]
Thanks for this! Wordpress certainly has a few e-mail related issues, this is the first that I have read about this particular issue, Im going to default to Bree and Boone on this but will also see what I can find in the interim –
Last week, one my pilot instructors told me that emails from OpenLab were being sent out late or not at all. This led me down a rabbithole that I wanted to share, but it also left an important question. Has anyone turned off WordPress’ Auto Cron Job, and instead created a real Cron job that runs on a schedule.
WordPress is designed…[Read more]
We tried the mu- plugin but it did not work! The file types showed in list of allowed mime types, but we could not upload LaTeX files.
We then installed your recommended plugin (wp-add-mime-types) and that did work!
Catching up on this thread now, thanks All, indeed the most efficient UI and UX plays a role, thanks Bree for reposting this again – (Better control over toolbar display on subsites)
If you look at this example:
I’m talking about the SUNY Oneonta logo that might not look as good on a shorter header. I also like the concept of a universal header, so it would be a bit of a bummer if my suggestion would be to turn off the header, but I also want a good fix for these students.
I agree with Ed that while it might seem a small thing, the header issues do interfere with what I’m trying to do: provide students and faculty a platform for building beautiful websites. I like all of the things Ed suggests, though I can’t yet imagine how a slimmer universal header like the one on this page would interfere–Ed, can…[Read more]
Thanks for bringing this discussion over to the forum!
I was actually just responding to the related ticket about this that Boone opened (Better control over toolbar display on subsites) to say that we think it’s a good idea to go ahead with this change, in absence of a full rewrite, which isn’t possible now.
However, we would also like…[Read more]
Amanda, Boone and I have been having a conversation over on Github, and I thought I would bring it over to the public forums because more people interact here.
The issue we are seeing is how different themes deal with headers and header menus. With the current implementation of the OpenLab header:
- There is often a small white spacer and black…
Thank you, Ray! I’ll let you know how it goes when Chris has a chance to implement your instructions.
Just one question: You wrote “Besides adding the
The LaTeX files I have are .tex file extension. Are we supposed to add tex and ltx?
