Get to Know Your ManageWP Settings

It’s easy to customize ManageWP so that it provides the perfect management tools for your setup. We know that every person’s approach to website management is different, that’s why we’ve provided a whole group of ManageWP settings that you can tweak and change to make sure that ManageWP works for you. You can change how many posts and comments appear on the Dashboard, add additional layers of security and much more!

How to Optimize Your Advanced Settings

Advanced Settings 2

In your Advanced Settings you are able to optimize:

  • Max Parallel Requests

Set the maximum number of parallel requests per server. More requests usually mean a faster syncing time, but some sites may not load if the server can not handle that many connection (sites will appear in red).

  • Post Revisions

Here you can select the amount of Post Revisions you wish to keep per each post when performing the Clean Revisions action. The most recent post revision (depending on the number you choose to keep) will not be displayed nor cleaned inside the Optimization Widget.

  • Pagination

Here you can set how many websites you want to be displayed per page. Keep in mind that too many websites on one page could slow down the dashboard (50 is recommended).
