Pingcrawl adds a "Possibly related posts" capability by querying Google Blog Search for post tags and pinging the results. Limits are configurable.


  • Released to wordpress.org


  • My initial release based on version 2.8 alpha by Josh Team.
  • Stripped down version requires PHP5, WP2.7 (at least, for the new HTTP API; untested below 2.8.4).
  • No database tables; ping information is all stored in post metadata.
  • Admin menus cleaned up, made to reflect plugin functionality.
  • Ignores blogsearch results containing: htm, html, blogspot, livejournal, ning.com, aspx, vbulletin (which rarely if ever accept WP ping notifications).
  • If no pingable posts for a tag are found, no output is added.
  • If no pingable posts at all are found, nothing at all is added.
  • Minimal debugging available through PHP error logging if function mjg() is enabled by uncommenting it in the source.
  • Stripped out code that original author(s) were using to attract links to their own sites.
