Is there a way to auto generate the sigs from cron?

Postby Allanon » Sat Sep 30, 2006 12:59 am

I would like to know if there is a way to have, server side, an auto sig generator run once an hour or every 4 hours. As it sits now, I have guildies who have not yet updated their profiles so the default sigs for them are personalized with details from their profile. It would be great to have the server auto generate just those new sigs based on a user who uploads their profile or just do them all again in batch on a schedule. Thoughts?

That's already default to my knowledge. You just need to scan through the options of siggen to enable update on character upload or on guild upload (warning: large guilds will take time ;-) )

I run my roster configured with: update on character upload.

I think part of the problem is that the sigs are not generated when you use uniuploader, so what they are looking for is a way to have it done automatically at some other time, maybe with a cron job. It should be possible to write a php page that you could call from cron that will go through all of the users and generate any images that are older then the last time the user was seen in-game.

My bad, yes I am referring to most of our guild who uses uniuploader.

Sigh...
I really need to get to work on re-designing the generator code
