Future Ping - HELP! (12 posts)

    I know that this has been in the forums here going both ways, that WP doesn't future ping when a post is dated at some point in the future, and then other places it says that it does. I have 2.0.3, and when I timestamp a post for like the next day and then click Publish, it seems to take some time to save, which leads me to think that it's pinging right then. Am I wrong in thinking this? What is the correct answer in this? If it's doesn't support future pinging out of the box, what should I use in order to accomplish this?

    You are correct in saying that it pings when you click Publish, even if the time is set for future.

    In your searching here, you probably found a recent post mentioning a plugin that will help mitigate your concerns. Darned if I can recall the name...

    Personally, I don't have anything in my ping list. But I use FeedBurner and have it configured to do all the pinging for me when IT notices a new post (it seems to check every 30 minutes or so). And that works good 'nuff for my casual purposes.

    Oh really? -- I have a pretty big ping list -- I've never used Feedburner, can I insert these into Feedburner? Do you still leave the pinging on when creating a post?

    That plugin is WP Cron I think.

    http://www.feedburner.com should answer your FB questions. They seem to hit a bunch of services (look under Publicize - PingShot) and you can add 5 more of your own.

    And no, I don't ping when I publish. Can't recall publishing anything that was so urgent that it couldn't wait 0 - 30 minutes for folks to find it in their RSS readers. :-)

    Well of course -- but I mean did you leave that Allow Pings checked off when you made a post in the future.

    So you downloaded a plugin for WordPress for FeedBurner?

    Allow Pings, on the post, is to allow pingbacks for the post -- a bit different than what we're on about here.

    And yes, I use a plugin. There are at least 2 that I know of:

    http://orderedlist.com/articles/wordpress-feedburner-plugin/
    and
    http://flagrantdisregard.com/feedburner/

    I currently use the first one. I've not tried the second one, but at first glance it appears easier to use.

    Oh -- what are the pingbacks?

    I like the feedburner thing, I would just love to be able to put my ping list into the feedburner account
