[Plugin: W3 Total Cache] What does "?doing_wp_cron" mean?

  • W3 Total Cache doesn’t matter.
    Probably that string there was also before you activated the plugin…
    The cause of that string is surely the boolean constant you edited in the WP-Config.php file. You added this:
    define(‘ALTERNATE_WP_CRON’, true);

    It is the alternative wp cron (http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Alternative_Cron) you probably activated for some reasons. For example I activated it because I’m on Windows and the normal “cron” doesn’t work.
    The cron is simply the process that wordpress does to publish scheduled posts.

    Okay, is that a problem then? Or should I just keep everything as is? I think I actually threw that code into my wp-config because of my backup plugin.
