Autoping Norway


This plugin is dying. Update to disable functions and services no longer avaiable.

BUT: This plugin may add a few ordninary XML-RPC pingback services. Currently included:

  • Twingly
  • Bloggoversikten
  • Bloggurat
  • Technorati
  • Google BlogSearch


  • The Twingly services is a special services which re-pings your posts to several affiliated newspaper web editions.
    Hence, if you link to a newspaper article published online, your blog post will be listed and linked from that article.
  • Bloggoversikten and Bloggurat are other Norwegian blog search, list and aggregating sites.
  • Technorati and Google BlogSearch are blog search and overview sites.

This plugin lets you easily add or remove these services without copying and pasting their ping-URL into the ‘Ping services’
field onthe ‘Options – Writing’ page.


  1. Upload the contents (zipped subfolder ‘autoping-norway’) to ‘wp-content/plugins/’ of your WordPress site.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins – Installed’ page under WordPress Dashboard.
  3. Optionally, configure wanted pingback services under ‘Settings – Autoping Other’.
  4. If you want to use “Blopp”, visit either the ‘Users – Autoping Blopp’ or the ‘Settings – Autoping Blopp’ page and follow the instructions for registration.
  5. Optionally, configure automatic category selection using the ‘Posts – Autoping Categories’ page under WordPress Dashboard.


When will pinging the service “Blogglisten”, as indicated in an earlier version, be available?

This is not decided. I don’t even know if they will allow automatic pings.
At last it’s a bit complicated because they use form based pings only, and have no separate interface for automated pings.

Version 2.6.3, June 10, 2010

  • Both Bloggarkivet and Blopp has now terminated their services or using other mechanisms. This plugin will die.

Version 2.6.2, August 4, 2009

  • Needed update for blogs where automatic categories mapping has never been set for either “Bloggarkivet” or “Blopp”
  • Fixes a bug in 2.6 making the selection list of categories for “Bloggarkivet” and “Blopp” on the ‘Autoping Categories’ page to be empty, except for “Don’t ping”.
  • Fixes a mistake making the vote button for “Blopp” not to appear in Internet Explorer (unsupported MIME type)

Version 2.6.1, July 20, 2009

  • Fixes a bug that made the blog-wide “Blopp” registration undetected. If a per user based registration wasn’t
    saved then a “Missing” warning was seen on the Categories page, and “Blopp” would not be pinged.

Version 2.6, July 16, 2009

  • Enables a per user setting of each Blopp registration
  • Optionally adds a vote button for posts pinged to Blopp and that is entirely displayed (no more tag active) on either a single post page, the front page, all kinds archive pages and so on.
  • Removed all traces of “Bloggrevyen”.

Version 2.5.1, June 20, 2009

  • Bugfix for only the first few categories displayed.

Version 2.5, June 19, 2009

  • Added support for some ordinary pingback services, currently “Twingly”, “Bloggoversikten”, “Bloggurat”, “Google Blogsearch” and “Technorati”.
  • Fixed a bug (discovered back in version 2.0) causing new pages to be pinged when the next a post is published.
  • Inhibited the browser autocomplete to work on the username and password fields for “Blopp” registration settings.

Version 2.2, June 11, 2009

  • Removed “Bloggrevyen”, as the service is terminated.
  • Added the new service “Blopp”, which requires authentication to allow trackback pings.
  • New options/settings page for services requiring registration (currently “Blopp” only).

Version 2.1.1, June 2, 2009

  • Added a new category for Bloggarkivet.

Version 2.1, May 27, 2009

  • Fix for a language/localization bug wich caused the translation not to work, except when the plugin folder happened to be the non-standard autoping instead of autoping-norway.
  • Fix for listing of grandchild categories and below. They are now listed under its parent category, with a dash indicating the sublevel.
  • Plugin now completely independent of the plugin install folder. May this make it easier to work with WP-MU?
  • Added an extra information line, or a warning message, on the same page, after checking the current language/localization settings and file. This should help debugging any misbehaviour here.

Version 2.0, March 3, 2009

  • Original release of this plugin.

Version 1.0, November 6, 2006

  • This plugin’s predecessor “Trackback Bloggarkivet/-revyen” released. Then maintained for 2.5 years.
