    Hi Benjamin,
    you write "Because the CommentGrabber uses the WordPress Cron it is highly recommended, that you switch to a normal cron before using the CommentGrabber"
    So, i ask you, what means to use a "normal cron" and how to change it in wordpress??

    Hi Smithore,

    it depends on your webhosting provider. Some providers offer a real cronjob. If you own a dedicated server you should be familiar with crontab to create a cronjob for wordpress.

    The CommentGrabber works with normal WordPress Cron. But I recommend it to not slow down your blog in any way. This is just a recommendation to prevent people blaming me for their slow blogs.

    This said you have to test if you can live with this setting without a real cronjob.

    If you want to disable the WP-Cron you have to put this line of code near the beginning of your wp-config file:

    define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', TRUE);

    If you don't really know what this is all about then just leave the settings as they are and the CommentGrabber will work the normal way.

    Thanks Benjamin,
    I've read some way to deactivate the wp cron, like you recommend me.
    I've create a cpanel cron job like written in this post.
    But now i don't know how to test if it's working
    maybe i must precise something for all the plugin using cron, no??

    No, if you configured your cronjob and disabled the wp-cron as I stated in the config, all plugins which use cron should work.
