Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

I wrote this for my board and thought others would benefit from it.

This mod will cause vbulletin to ping a list of sites in the ACP that you add to the list. I have it set to pingomatic by default. But you can add others to the list as well. Note that I have just used it with pingomatic.

You can also disallow certain forums from being pings by listing them in the ignore forum box.

You can also choose to only ping on certain items. So you can turn on and off pinging on articles, blogs, or threads.

There is a debug option. It does not work in IE since IE doesn't like the xml that is used. It works in Firefox.

In addition, you can set your user agent to pass to the ping sites.

The hooks used are:
  • blog_post_updateentry_new
  • vbcms_article_save_end
  • newthread_post_complete

Instructions are to
  • Download the zip file
  • Unzip the zip file
  • Import the product file product-bvs03_vbpinger.xml through your ACP.
  • Then goto the settings page and set them up to ignore your private forums and disallow any pinging that you do not want to have occur. As well as set the user agent to another value if you want.

I agree. Screenshots or a demo would be nice to see how this works on a live or demo site.

It sends a ping to sites you list on the ACP page. It adds what Wordpress comes with default. It pings pingomatic. But you can add more sites

Pingomatic then will alert some other sites that your site has been updated. And hopefully it will lead to more people visiting the site.

Since its all backend there are no screenshots to take.

Thank you for this mod! I just switched to vbulletin and was missing my old instant updates on google after new posts were made.

To ignore foruns, we have to use commas or space between forum ids?

Ty in advance

Any feedback on this? Is it any good? Does it work?
Only 8 installs and 27 downloads.... I'd like to hear more from people using it before I install.
