Automatic articles check-in

How to set up cron task that will automatically check-in all articles for last 30 minutes

It is often happens that users do not close their articles properly after edit. And others (moderators and admins) cannot edit those articles. There is a special cron task which you can use. It will check in all articles that are checked out for more than 30 minuts.

It makes sense to configure to run command at least once a 30 minuts.

You can use curl or wget command. For example.

wget http://[site name]/index.php?option=com_cobalt&task=cron.checkIn&secret=123456

Where [site name] is the root of your Joomla instance and secret is the secret word you set in Cobalt global configuration.
