    do you need to set up a cron job for feedwordpress if you want it to check for updates less frequently than an 1 hour?. I tried messing with it to to check in the WP dashboard but it always seems to update every hour. So is a cron job needed?

    From what I've read it won't update more than the source allows, for me once an hour is fine, but obviously it depends on what you are feed from and your niche etc.

    yea but i've read on bhw that having it update every hour isnt good and it should update less often. i see on the feedwordpress site that you can set up a cron job and was wonderin if anybody was about to do that (to make it update every several hours instead of 1 hour)

    Youcan change the settings in Feedwordpress, to set them lower, or you can run a cronjob, I personally run cronjobs for mine.
