    I just installed wp multisite on local environment for test and create 3 blogs but in the dashboard it really slow because under 1-3 minutes it always do plugin check to "http://api.wordpress.org/plugins/update-check/1.0/" now i have to disable cron updates via wp-config.php by adding

    and all site running smoothly but with that setting i know i will not able to use "Update Services" or notify Search engine (sitemap.xml). i have tried install "disable update" plugin but it not work it still do checking, is there anyone have similar problem and resolve it?

    you can keep the cron disabled via wp-config and set up a cron job on your server to run wp-cron.php when you like. keep in mind all your plugins and functions that depend on wp-cron when you determine your timing.

    thanks all, running manually wp-cron.php it not good because it will do all previously blocked pending cron at once but now it resolved by completely disable cron and creating custom plugin to ping update service and submit sitemap to google and bing webmaster tools when new post created.

  4. But you WANT to run blocked cron. Run it once or twice an hour vs every time your pages are hit. Thus they don't run every 1-3 minutes as you complained.

    Your way means you get no auto plugin update notices.
