Manual Digest reset


I cannot for the life of me find the forum thread that told how to reset the manual digest "last sent" date.

Mine never gets updated so I have to manually reset the date that the digest was sent out.
Maybe it was on another site, but anyway, which table is it that I need to go into to set the date ?

There's a row in your gl_vars table, named "lastemailedstories" that holds the date and time of the last time the digest has been sent successfully.

The fact that this timestamp is not updated indicates that something went wrong with the digest. It's possible that not all of your users did receive it (e.g. because of server timeouts).

Unfortunately, this is very hard to debug. But if you have many users, you may hit your server's timeout limits pretty soon. The daily digest is not really made for mass emailing (at least not on your typical shared hosting account).

bye, Dirk

Ok great, Thanks!

I'll check and see if it gets sent out to everyone
