vB Version: 3.5.3 Rating: (4 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 74
Released: 17 Feb 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 215
Not Supported Additional Files  

This extension will ping update services such as technorati.com, or weblogs.com when a new thread is posted. You can add as many services as you wish to ping in the admin CP.

Here is a good explanation of what update services are:

http://codex.wordpress.org/Update_Services

It is recommended that you have rss and xml syndication turned ON in your vbulletin settings.

You should not add too many services as it could slow down your forum when people post new threads.

This does not update services when replies are posted, only when a new thread is started.

Installation:

Upload the IXR_Library.inc.php file to your forum root.

Install product.

Define settings in the vb options under post pinger.

Click Install!

Will offer support here as I can or at my forum at http://www.worldwidecreations.com

By duration, if you mean will it timeout? Well, it will as much as any other PHP script will timeout. You can use just the pingomatic RPC service you want by entering:

http://rpc.pingomatic.com/

Into the post pinger settings in the admin cp. I always find they lag real bad so I don't usually use them. In fact, I have never found that service to work to well at all.

It pings when a new thread is posted, as it should. You should notify the services as soon as you have new content.

Pinging services once a day, or the way you are saying, once a week, is pointless, your content is already a week old. What would be the point?

Maybe I am missing something here....Whats the real use of this? - to ping a location everytime someone posts?


I think I understand it, could you explain the purpose of pinging those places named above?

Could this be set up so that we could configure it on a per-forum basis? For example, the computer forum could ping technorati, but the political forum could ping somewhere else.
