links_update_cache.xml problem (8 posts)

    Weird, weird happenings. When I installed the plugin, I set the permissions on this file to 766; yesterday, all worked well. Today, however, the updated blogs are not showing as updated, and the permissions on the file have changed to 666 (heh - it's the file of the Beast). I know I didn't change it, so I'm perplexed. Any thoughts?

    For the last two days, my links have not been updating, either. Nothing else changed, they just stopped updating. Anyone else notice this happening or have a possible solution?

    I believe the problems lie with http://www.weblogs.com/changes.xml

    It appears to be not found

    I was wondering the same. This morning I was relooking at the options making sure all was well.

    THAT can explain much... thanks

    So is there an alternate xml file somewhere we can use? I looked on ping-omatic but I couldn't find one.

    I managed to update during the time it's disappeared and started trying to highlight updated blogs for the first time. So it's comforting to see that it's a general problem and not just me.

    I've been having problems with this plugin as well. I installed mine day before yesterday and I still can't get it to work. I've been talking back and forth with Carthik but so far, no luck. What should the permission be set to on the link_update_cache.xml?

    If you can go with using a cron job, it seems that'd be better. Or if you're using 1.5, I think you don't need any of the above. Under Options > Miscellaneous, check "Track Link’s Update Times".
