• I was suffering from 8-10 second delays between page loads. I tried everything I could think of to track it down, and neither tech support at Elegant Themes (DIVI Theme) nor my web hosting company Inmotion Hosting could find anything wrong as to the cause. Finally, I thought I’d try this this plug-in on a whim to see if the Heartbeat API was the cause. It was.

    I simply disabled the Heartbeat API on the front end using the Heartbeat Control plug-in and my pages were loading how they should without page caching in a fraction of a second. Later applied it to disable the back-end admin dashboard Heartbeat API and set the post editor heartbeat to 62 seconds (as many things seem to run on the exact minute). Simple to use interface, quick and convenient. This is an essential plug for WordPress.
