I have a "dynamic" block of front-page articles. Its source is a folder object. It works-- at least, it shows the articles in that folder.
But it is not "dynamic." Whenever I add a new article to that folder, the front page does not show the article until I "Edit" the Home [Frontpage] object. I don't need to actually change anything, only click "Edit" and then "Send for publishing."
The eZ Flow documentation indicates that no such editorial action is required for the contents of a dynamic block to update. What am I missing?

The answer may seem too obvious to some, but it was new to me. I had heard about setting up the cron scripts, and even had mine all done, as directed in one of the online documentation pages. But I didn't know I had to also add ezflow into my crontab. I finally figured this out by tracing back from the eZFlowOperations.update() method to find out when and where it should be called.
So I have this in my crontab now, for future reference for anyone else that may need it. I couldn't find any reference to it in the eZ Flow setup guide, and only vague references in the forums and online documentation.
