Several options are provided to allow you to configure the way that WordPatch handles mods. The global configuration settings described in this article apply to any mods that are set to inherit one or more of the settings mentioned. In addition to the global configuration options, many of the same options exist that can be specified at the mod-specific level. Please read Mod Configuration Settings for more information.
Currently, WordPatch only supports the English language. However, in the near future we plan to support many different languages. If you would like to help us translate WordPatch to your language, please send us an email!
The moderation mode option allows you to specify which of the following modes you want to use for judging mods after they have completed running:
Optimistic Mode: After the moderation timer (see below) has finished running, automatically approve mods unless they have been explicitly rejected.
Pessimistic Mode: After the moderation timer (see below) has finished running, automatically reject mods unless they have been explicitly accepted.
Both of the modes listed above work with the moderation timer as described below.
The moderation timer is the length of time after a mod has completed running successfully that an automatic judgement will be cast. The automatic judgement will be based on the moderation mode (see above).
The update cooldown option allows you to control the length of time between WordPress automatic updates (i.e., core, plugin, theme) and the running of enabled mods. By default, this is set to three minutes. Each automatic update that occurs causes the existing timer (if any) to reset. You may find more information about The WordPress Update Process by clicking here.
The retry count option allows you to control the number of times a mod will attempt to run in the event of a network error between WordPatch and the JointByte API server. By default, this is set to: Three.
The maintenance mode option allows you to control whether or not to display a WordPress maintenance page when mods are pending. By default, this is set to: Yes.
Please note that if you set this option to No, none of your mods will trigger a maintenance page regardless of their mod-specific maintenance mode setting.
Once you have specified your global configuration settings, scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save Settings to save.
