AJAX Heartbeat Tool

Description

Provides a method of turning the WordPress heartbeat off as well as change some settings. We use this plugin at RD because the heartbeat was clobbering site performance when more than one editor was logged into the CMS. In the future I plan to add the ability to adjust the settings.

  • Disables admin-ajax.php except on the posts, post edit & quick edit pages
  • Disables hearbeat autostart
  • Sets the heartbeat interval to 60 seconds

Installation

  1. Upload ajax-heartbeat-tool to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory

FAQ

Is there a setting or options page?

Currently no, but in the future I plan to add the ability to adjust the settings.
