[SOLVED] ping-o-matic.com

This site doesn’t exist any more – but it is still in the preferences.

Re: [SOLVED] ping-o-matic.com

If it’s incorrect/not working then why not raise an issue

AFAIK it was always named ping-o-matic and the URL always was without the hyphens :-)

You might be right. I just searched through the db and the only place I could find pingomatic was in the glx_admin_ping plugin. An old one which I guess that it still works.

Re: [SOLVED] ping-o-matic.com

I’d question whether that ‘feature’ is even needed in Textpattern any more. I don’t think Textpattern.com even uses the data anyway. If it does I’d like to see the graphs of data made public at any rate, or remove it entirely.

Re: [SOLVED] ping-o-matic.com

Phil, pingomatic is a multi-ping service which alarms a lot of bots that new content was published.
A ‘ping’ with the URL of the new article is sent to one server which distributes it via API to a bulk of other servers which will send bots to crawl the new content.

Pinging textpattern.com on the other hand seems to be pretty useless if there is any use at all :)

Re: [SOLVED] ping-o-matic.com

Ah, I see, thanks Markus.

Re: pinging Textpattern.com – maybe Robert can shed some light on whether this is used and if so, what it does exactly. Stef was unsure what it did apart from making some call back to the RPC server.

Re: [SOLVED] ping-o-matic.com

I am hoping we could use the pinging textpattern.com as a metric for active installs.

So am I, but does it do that currently do that? If yes the graphs should be public, if no then how easy would it be to get working?
