[resolved] How often should comments update to and from my WP page? (3 posts)

    How often should I be receiving/sending updates to Facebook? When I view the log it seems to be happening about every 40minutes-1hr --I don't notice any failures, but honestly I haven't thoroughly read every word on each line.

    Eventually everything seems to update fine. Though this is the first time I will walk away for an extended period of time (as I am going to sleep.) I have comments set as open without admin approval, so if anyone would like to test it out feel free.

    I have verified that my uid & page id are correctly entered and enabled in the wpbook plugin setting. And it verifies this with the permissions link inside the plug settings.

    yes - the current cron job is set to run hourly.

    I'm concerned that running it too frequently will cause resource issues on popular blogs, but if you want to change it, the key line is line 79 of wpbook.php:

    $dummy=wp_schedule_event(time(), 'hourly', 'wpbook_cron_job');

    Problem is, hourly is the most frequent pre-defined schedule, so you'd have to also define your own schedule - see 'creating your own recurrence frequency' in this article.

    We can consider more frequent scheduling in a future version of WP, but I think the default will certainly remain hourly.

    Thanks for the info. I guess I am spoiled by all the twitter stuff that is on demand. The more and more I begin to work with facebook in this way the more obviously bulky and complicated it is.

    Great plugin.
