Automat:ee 1.2.1 Documentation
To install Automat:ee you follow the same steps as any other ExpressionEngine add-on:
- Unzip the download
- Upload the extracted folder to your ExpressionEngine third party folder usually located at:
- Navigate to your Add-Ons management page and choose Modules
- Select Automat:ee from the list and click install.
You have a couple options when it comes to installation. Both have their pros and cons depending on your needs so choose the option that works best for your situation.
To enable pseudo cron you have to include the below template tag within a template that gets executed frequently (preferably at the bottom of the HTML page like a footer template). Using the below will insert an image bug that will check for crons and run any if needed.
This is the ideal installation method. To enable you'll have to be comfortable and familiar with setting up a Cron job at the server level. You'll need to navigate to the Instructions page within the Settings panel to get the command that's tailored to your system. An example of the command is below but IT IS NOT APPLICABLE TO YOUR SITE OR SYSTEM.
