ive looked everywhere,and cant seem to find out how to program a pump to change throughout the day. heres what i mean.
i currently have this programed
fallback on
osc 000:15/000:30/000:15 then on
if time 21:00 to 08:00 then off
feeda 005

this works fine, but what if i want to change the on/off duration throughout the day. say i want to increase it to osc 000:04/000:08/000:04 then on, from 12:00 to 16:00 and then return to the original from 4 to 9 and then off.
ive tried using multiple "if time" commands but as i figured it jumped to the last osc command and ran that. is this a virtual outlet thing? or just the order of my commands.

I"d create some virtual outlets, maybe name them morning, afternoon and night. In each, put your desired oscillate command along with an 'If Time' for the times you DO NOT want that outlet to run. So the morning might look like:

OSC 0:00/0:30/0:15 Then ON
If Time 11:00 to 08:00 Then OFF

Then in your pump outlet, check each of your virtual outlets to see if they're ON like this:

Set OFF
If Outlet Morning = ON Then ON
If Outlet Afternoon = ON Then ON
etc.
