    Does pinging happen automatically when you post?

    Also the Pings checkbox under the Comments & Pings section near the bottom of each post, is this ping just related to commments and not pinging the blog directories?

    Thanks for your help guys

    Yes, if you haven't enabled the privacy setting, haven't touched the "Update Services" area on the Settings > Writing page, and haven't unmarked the "Attempt to notify any blogs linked to from the article (slows down posting.)" checkbox on the discussion page.

    Also the Pings checkbox under the Comments & Pings section near the bottom of each post, is this ping just related to commments and not pinging the blog directories?

    That is my understanding. Also, the "pinging of the blog directories" is normally done via pingomatic.

    Thanks SG, much appreciated!

    The 3rd option was unchecked as default, so i've left this, hopefully thats OK?

    If by "the 3rd option," you mean the "Attempt to notify any blogs linked to from the article (slows down posting.)" checkbox, then that only affects blog-to-blog pinging (e.g., trackbacks).
