ACP Cron Entries

Sorry if this is a dumb question. I see these Cron Entries in ACP, but they do not seem to be running automatically. I recently imported my old board to XenForo. I manually ran "Update User Trophies", but all of the other Cron Entries show "Next Run" times that are several days ago. Server has been rebooted several times since install. They do not seem to be running automatically. What do I need to do?

The cron system is driven by page loads. If no one visits your forum for a while then those tasks won't run.

And make sure this code exists in the PAGE_CONTAINER template:

<xen:if is="{$cronLink}"><img src="{$cronLink}" width="1" height="1" alt="" style="display: none" /></xen:if>
Hey Jake,

You've been really helpful, thanks.

The site usually has 15 or so people on at a time. The code you listed above does exist in the template. Still not working though. Even if I click on the manual "run" under ACP/Cron Entries" for each of the items it doesn't run. The "Cron Entries" page looks exactly like it did last night, even though I manually tried to run each of them yesterday.

The mods I have on the board are XenPorta, a new listener to make XenPorta the default page (which is reporting problems) and ThemesInc XenoMorph Framework.
Update: I rebooted the server earlier today and manually tried to run every Cron job. The ACP Cron page hasn't changed since the image I posted above yesterday.
