    Hello Matt,

    I am currently trying to improve my site through Yslow Firefox extension.
    I added "Expires Headers" via a php command, but one and only one file seems to not get this tag : "wordpress-file-monitor.php?ver=scan"

    Is there a way to correct this ?
    Or maybe is it the essence of WordPress File Monitor which prevent this ?

    Thanks for your answer.

    Had to uninstall the plugin again because of this, had already forgotten that it's there on all pages after activating it :(

    I see no reason why this kind of security script is
    a) visible to all
    b) loaded on the front end.

    I asked about this months ago:


    And others did too:



    It takes a good 500ms to load the thing for no good reason, plus it can't be optimal for security to have it exposed.

    Is there a reason not to use wp-cron to run it with a timer in the back-end?

    I'm no longer publicly supporting the plugin, it's fulfilling its need for me. But another developer is more then welcome to fork it and continue work on it if they would like. I might release an update in the future, but for now, it's doing what it's supposed to.

    It loads as a CSS file so that it won't delay your perceived page load time when it's scheduled time to run comes around.

    I believe this was answered already in one of the threads you linked to.

    Hello all,

    I have forked the plugin and you can get it over at: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-file-monitor-plus/

    Its a complete re-write of WordPress File Monitor.

    It doesnt use a stylesheet to trigger scans but uses the cron built into wordpress, or if you prefer you can run it via an external cron.
