WP Updates Notifier
[resolved] More option in "frequency to check" (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I suggest to add the option weekly because some sites are very "static" and several providers, as Dreamhost, doesn't like when the link and memory are used frequently.

    Hello, sorry for the late reply, my RSS feed program has let me down :(

    WordPress only has cron intervals as follows:

    hourly
    twicedaily
    daily

    More can be added, although I don't see the need to set an interval longer than daily.

    When the cron runs, the processing done by WPUN is no more than a couple of page hits to your website.

    Cheap hosting providers shouldn't grumble at this.

    Hi,

    I would also like to see the option for a weekly schedule included in the plugin.

    Regards,

    I'm not convinced that a weekly option is required and so, I will not add one unless you can convince me otherwise.

    Hi Scott,

    5x reasons why I believe you should add a "weekly" option:

    1) Others have also raised this as a feature they would like to see in your plugin.
    2) The "required" bit is relative to one's own situation. You don't see "weekly" as needed whilst others do.
    3) Less disruption (alert emails) when running multiple sites - therefore better use of time.
    4) It's not that difficult to add.
    5) Wise are those plugin developers that heed the suggestions from their user base.

    Regards,
