Can't use cron to check IMAP if "Allow guests to browse the forum" disabled

Hi,

I'm trying to use cron to check IMAP for topic replies (through email_imap_cron.php). It works fine if "Allow guests to browse the forum" is enabled, but if I uncheck this box, the script diverts to the login page without checking the IMAP box.

Bug or am I doing something wrong?

I just checked this on my local install, it still runs when guest browsing is disabled just less frequently due to the amount of times I can access it.

The cron task is run by people accessing the forum as a scheduled task.

You can set up a manual cron to run it every x mins rather than having to rely on people accessing the forum.

I'd vote for the bug dammit.
Try changing in email_imap_cron.php, the line:
Code: [Select]
new Bootstrap();
to:
Code: [Select]
global $ssi_guest_access;
$ssi_guest_access = true;
new Bootstrap(true);
Bugs creator.
Features destroyer.
Template killer.

Thanks, that seems to work.
