No that is wrong. Go to the global settings of com_comment. Joomla backend -> components -> ccomment -> settings and there in the bar you have Options. On the maique tab you have the correct link for the cronjob.
Daniel, please explain how to configure the cron job to fire off every 1 min or so, as you have suggested in this thread. I can see the cron job link in the options, but I have no idea how or where to configure it. Using the send email on page load is useless, as the user may not get back to the page. Thanks.
What is your hosting panel? Do you use cpanel? or something different? Normally in the hosting panel you have an option to setup a cronjob. You enter the url and set the time it should be executed and that is all.
Aha, my host doesn't support cron jobs. So I used a third party cron job service, and that works correctly. Even so, for web sites with little traffic, it would make a lot of sense if there would be a choice to send the email out directly.
In ccomment4 we were sending the mail directly. The issue with that is that whenever you have 30 people that are subscribed to a conversation you need to send 30 emails. Now if it only takes 200ms to send a mail, this would mean that we would need 30x200 = 6000ms to send the mails which is 6s. Add a second to add the comment -> this means that the user would need to wait 7 seconds to see the comment published. That is why we opted away from this method.
