Ping addon

Postby johnct » Thu Aug 10, 2006 5:42 pm

I would like an addon that will ping blog search engines like Technorati everytime we publish a news story.

Anyone done this already?

Pinging plugin required part two

Postby johnct » Mon Aug 14, 2006 2:28 pm

I am not a programmer, but am happy to make a donation to someone who is (and I am sure others in this community will find it useful). Should be quite simple - I am happy if it simply uses pingomatic to ping some sites - eg ... erocket=on

Where blogurl is replaced with the latest item published.

Not saying I will implement this, just adding ideas...

The addon would need an admin page, since you would need to be able to specify a static URL for the parameter blogurl for the newsitem, eg. specify to use viewnews.cgi or a specific Maginot Static Profile.

When would this ping be executed? Only when submitting a newsitem, or "at will" for a specific newsitem from the modify news page?

The diferent blogs should be possible to choose at the admin page, like you do at pingomatic?
Yes, I am still around...
