Task if a bit difficult to explain so I'll do my best: (will make perfect sense once seen)
Have current function in admin to 'schedule' categories.
Using this function, we define a start_date/hour and an end_date/hour.
There is a separate script that contains database queries that is triggered by cron. It basically checks database for time entries and then activates/deactivates categories accordingly.
In admin area, due to all of the functions being contained in the cron script... after I add category/edit category start or end times >> click apply >> I then have to click a link to the cron file to update changes.
I would like to have the functions within the cron file added to the [url removed, login to view] file so that when a category is edited, changes are applied without having to manually execute the cron script.
Additionally, it doesn't seem like the dates are being 'remembered' on the [url removed, login to view] page. Every time a category is edited, the dates are blank, forcing you to add them again. If dates could be 'retained', that would be ideal.
Please note: I make no 'upfront' payments of any kind. I pay in full upon successful completion of project. Feel free to see my feedback and if this is still not acceptable to you, please don't bid :)
