    Hi,

    My whole admin area is loading slow (ca. 3 secs or more), so I re-activated the plugin Query Monitor again to see, what is slowing down my admin area.

    I found out, that there are two calls to api.wordpress.org, one for checking plugin updates, one for theme updates. After digging into wp-includes/update.php I found out, that a transient should avoid the check on every page load.
    After a look into my database, the transient update_plugins has a “last_checked”-value of 1276981090, which is somewhere in 2010: It’s more than a logical thing, that wordpress checks for an update.

    Do you know this scenario?
    Why doesn’t the transient get updated?
    Is it safe to edit the transient in the database to a more recent timestamp?

    Any help or hint is appreciated!

    I’d just delete the transients and see what happens on next page load

    Had to enforce wp_cron call, but now the transients are correct.

    HTTP calls are still there 🙁

    Okay. It was my theme – again. It deleted the transients on “init”.
    Hate that Theme.

    Friends, don’t use Splash from mythemeshop.com – I had to reconfigure so many things: It’s going so deep into wordpress, it’s PITA,
