Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Pingy Goodness

I’m putting the final touches on a new incarnation of my Blog Service Pinger, in coordination with fellow WordPress developer, Matt Mullenweg. This will be the first step of a completely new evolution of the pinger. We’ll be taking the covers off on Tuesday, April 20. Check back then for the big news!

    Does the blog pinger have an XML-RPC interface? That way, I could use conventional pinging methods to ping the pinger, and then the pinger could do the real pings for me?

    Not yet, but that’s a planned future feature. I plan to support a standard weblogs.com-style ping, which will auto-ping a pre-defined set of services.

    I also plan to make a set of new XML-RPC API methods which will allow you to pick-and-choose exactly which services you would like to ping.

    Lots and lots of multi-ping lovin’ coming down the pipe soon!

    Uh, can someone explain to me why probably 90% of bloggers don’t know what all the hullaballoo is about pings, and why they should get all tingly about a NEW pinger? Isn’t pinging almost like a “fad” in the sense that it’s similar in the way lots of people like to badge their sites with “powered by everything”?

    I suppose those who earn a living or support their other professional endeavors might want a really cool XML-RPC interface, but why should the 90 percentile care? :twisted:
