This is documentation about a configuration directive, which can be placed within Movable Type’s core configuration file, mt-config.cgi, to customize the behavior of the system.

This configuration directive specifies whether activity feed requests should trigger the scheduled tasks framework. The default is enabled (1). To disable this trigger, add this to your configuration file:

ActivityFeedsRunTasks 0

This will revert back to the legacy behavior where the scheduled task framework is only triggered through use of run-periodic-tasks.

Note: Regardless of the use of the above methods of scheduled task framework execution, the junk feedback expiration task is always executed when junk feedback is received.
