    Hi

    how can I disable the autosave feature, it is annoying and is not compatible with woocommerce as when it autosaves you are not able to alter product SKU, also during image upload the autosave feature kicks in and stops upload of image

    thanks

    Add to wp-config.php

    define('AUTOSAVE_INTERVAL', 160 ); // seconds

    Edit this to the seconds desired

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Modify_AutoSave_Interval

    Or add to functions.php preferably in a Child Theme so the edit is not lost on theme update:

    function disableAutoSave(){
        wp_deregister_script('autosave');
    }
    add_action( 'wp_print_scripts', 'disableAutoSave' );

    thanks

    used

    define('AUTOSAVE_INTERVAL', 160 ); // seconds

    but I think it should be

    define('AUTOSAVE_INTERVAL', '160' ); // seconds

    I provided the codex article on this - your theme can override - try with a function.

    i mean the ' ' was missing in the codex, it seem to need to quote marks either side of the number of seconds

    thanks
