Problem with links updating? (4 posts)

    My links have not updated automatically for several days? The links-update-cache.xml has not changed since 7/10. I don't believe anything has changed on my site which would cause it to suddenly stop working.
    Does anyone know if anything has changed at weblogs.com which would cause this to stop working? Is anyone else experiencing similar problem?
    TIA

    Did you get a copy of the 1.2 index.php (that will not check for updates automatically, one line is missing)
    If you did then there is an updatelinkroll plugin I wrote that essentially inserts that line to include the file that does the checking when index.php is loaded.
    What have you changed since the date the links were last update?
    If you suspect weblogs.com of mischeif, try blo.gs or blogrolling. get their changes (xml) file... that's a setting you can change in wp

    Thanks. I've not changed anything in my WP blog, that's why I was wondering if weblogs.com was acting up. All was working fine up to 7/10.
    I'll check with my hosting company to see if something changed there.

    Traced this problem back to my host service. The auto updates are run as a cron task, and they had made some change there which caused cron to fail.
    It's fixed now, and all is back to normal.
    Again... not a WordPress or a weblogs.com error.
