    Hi would there be a way of setting up a cron job to run the feed refreshing of the cache instead of it happening when the front page loads? I ask this because im pulling from over 40 feeds on one shortcode and every time to refreshes the cache it causes a 30 second load time, so instead of having it refresh the feed on page load it would be better to have a cron job do it so that it runs in the background

  • Hi,
    I perfectly understand your need, but you have to know that WordPress cron jobs are always run when a page is loaded, so if you develop something like that with the standard WP functions, you’ll figure out the same problem.
    Maybe I’m wrong, so if someone can react to your question, I’ll be glad to help doing something on this.
    Regards

    there is a way to do it here: https://developer.wporg.ibadboy.net/plugins/cron/hooking-into-the-system-task-scheduler/

    but after reading up about it I think it wouldnt make much of a differance, specially as i have now moved over to the multi site setting.

    I will continue to look into speeding this plugin up as i do love it, but with 9 feeds displaying 10 posts on a single page with the short code load times are pretty long, I do understand why the load time is soo long because its a lot of data to read and then to sort.

    if i figure anything out ill let you know 😀

    OK, thanks for your feedback.
    Regards
