Content of a ping (5 posts)

    Hi

    I have a little question regarding the ping function.

    If I have set that my regular RSS feed only should display my excerpts, what content will the pingbacks contain? Will the places I ping get the whole post or just the excerpt?

    what you set your feed to has nothing to do with what a ping sends..

    im confused as to why you would think theyre even remotely related.

    Since the service I ping says that the RSS feed should include all the text that should be indexed I wondered if the ping itself contain any info from my post or if it just is a way to tell the service I ping to have a look at my RSS feed.

    In that case, is there a way to point the services to a RSS feed that is custom made for them?

    Ping service and pingback are not the same :)
    You started asking about pingback not about ping services...

    Sorry about that, but how does the ping function work? Is it just a way to tell the services to have a look at my RSS feed, and can I define what RSS feed they should go to?
