The WordPress Heartbeat API, introduced in WordPress 3.6, simulates a pulse and is responsible for revision tracking, session management, and more
The WP Thor Heartbeat plugin, allows you to manage the frequency of the WordPress heartbeat API.
- Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
- Activate Heartbeat Control on the Plugins page.
- Adjust any settings within WP THOR Heartbeat that you find on the menu bar.
You can disable the heartbeat API completely and/or specify where to use it.
Heartbeat intervals can be modified between 15 and 60 seconds between requests, saving on server resources.
