Support » Fixing WordPress » [FYI] Update links 1.5

  • Under /wp-admin/update-links.php, you need to change the permissions for that file to 755. I believe only then will the “Track Links’ Update Times” feature work. My blogroll list in my sidebar wasn’t working until I manually loaded that page, then changed the file permissions.

    A dev or mod can correct me if I’m wrong of course.

  • Yeah, I’m not sure what to do. Does this thread deserve to keep getting bumped up?

    I think it does…

    Not everyone has access to a cron job, thats why the plugin came about in the first place

    I’ve tried changing the plugin line to


    and it causes more problems than before and needleess to say, doesnt work…

    Alright, cool, thanks for trying that out. If you can, you should edit your previous post to reflect that that doesn’t work. =/

    Isn’t it scary when things go ::bump:: in the night?

    Nice to see this getting bumped by a couple people – keep it going until a mod gets mad. *LoL*

    I don’t have access to cron jobs on my web space either. Does anyone know if there is a plugin/hack that will work with Strayhorn? Overall I am quite impressed with Strayhorn; I’d really like the “recent linkroll updates” to work, though. If it won’t work I may have to resort back to (BLECH!)

    I think I’ll send a question to the hacker’s list about this.

    hi folks
    does anyone know if it is worthwhile updating from wordprss 1.2.2
    to wordpress 1.5?

    if so, how do i do it?

    with respect from marion

    Marion: Please start a new thread. With all due respect, your post had nothing to do with updated links in 1.5. Please edit your post so others won’t follow suit. Thanks.

    It seems that the entire “Options” – “Links Manager” tab is not in WP 1.5. From the WP 1.2 screen shot the Options sub menu is: General, Writing, Reading, Discussion, Miscellaneous, Permalinks, Link Manager. In WP 1.5, the Options sub menu is: General, Writing, Reading, Discussion, Permalinks, Miscellaneous. Is this an oversight or is it an intentional omission?

    I set up a cron job, but I’ve had to remove it as it’s eaten its way through an awful lot of my bandwidth.

    For now I’ve bookmarked update-links.php, not an ideal solution, but nevermind

    OK. A cheap solution that seems to work: I took the old
    <?php include_once(ABSPATH.WPINC."/links-update-xml.php"); ?>

    line and updated it to
    <?php include_once(""); ?>

    now things are updating, but it doesn’t look like all my favorites are pinging ping-o-matic yet.

    One or two, one or two….

    Is there a way to refer to a service that more blogs actually ping to? I’ve just realised that I don’t link to that many wordpress blogs. Most of my friends use Blogspot. What’s that about?

    I brought this up, as well, but the suggestion is to tell the blogspot people to ping ping-o-matic
