I run the "lcalcron.php" each night at 01:45 LT. I set the notification time to 1 day. But I saw that, like this morning, I got two notifications, one for today and one for tomorrow. Did I miss something crucial somewhere? And I haven't tested it, but what happens if I set the notification time to 0 days?

Hi there,

The notifications work as follows:
- If you select Send mail "now", an immediate email notification will be sent.
- If you specify a number of days before the event, for instance 5, then 5 days before the event an email will be sent and on the event day itself, an email will be sent.
- If you specify 0 days, no email will be sent. This behavior however has changed in the next LuxCal version, in the next LuxCal version (V4.3.1), if 0 days are specified, an email will be sent on the event date.

And when do we have the 4.3.1 version? :-) Or is it a simple patch?

Hi Richard,

It's indeed a simple patch. If you want it, I would prefer to send you a version 4.3.0a (which includes some more fixes and improvements), just to be sure you will have a consistent set of files. So, send me your email address if you're interested.

I've just upgraded from Luxcal 2.5.3 to 4.3.0.

I found the user guide explaining that you could put a zero in the reminder box but if you try it the form validation deletes it and sets it to -1.

If you use phpmyadmin to set it to 0 it correctly sends out a reminder on the day.

Either the user guide or the form validation appears to be wrong or have I got the wrong version.


PS  Luxcal has worked well on my website for several years - I only upgraded to get the export ics cron job.  Thanks very much for all your work.

Hi Russell,
I searched all files, but could not find a user guide explaining that you could put a zero in the reminder box.
Where did you read this?

I have Luxcal v4.3.0m

In the English user guide in Section 6 under "send mail fields" it says:

" If the number of days is set to '0' an email reminder will be sent on the event day only."

Ok, found. Thanks.
In the next LuxCal version the email reminder function will work as described in Section 6.
