#9118: cron loopback fix
 Reporter:  cookeal      |       Owner:  anonymous    
     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new          
 Priority:  normal       |   Milestone:  2.7.2        
Component:  General      |     Version:  2.7          
 Severity:  normal       |    Keywords:  cron loopback
 I was one of the people on shared hosting behind a firewall that did not
 allow loopbacks and therefore could not get any of the cron tasks to work.
 After a long and cooperative discussion with my hosts they have provided
 an amended cron.php and wp-cron.php to circumvent the problem - they have
 not changed their firewall but after applying the amended files to 5/6 of
 my blogs I can confirm full cron functionality. I am not a programmer and
 therefore dont really understand the mechanics of the fix, but wonder
 whether this fix should be posted here in order that it can be
 incorporated into the build and therefore solve this problem for others.
 Would be happy if someone could advise whether or not I am in the right
 place and how to proceed?
 Many thanks
