Update services and post.php? (5 posts)

    Each time I make a new post it takes awhile (10 sec or so) to actually post and when it finally does I'm presented with a download option for post.php.

    I checked my server and I don't have a post.php. I'm thinking this has something to do with my list of update services. Is it possible to have too many update services? Should I have a post.php file?

    Sorry for the newbie questions but your help is appreciated.

    A lot of update services, especially if any are slow or not responding, will definitely cause the problem you've observed.

    Quick test: Remove them and make a test post. Any faster without 'em all?

    There's a plugin called (I think) "NoPingWait". Might be worth searching for and trying. It does the pinging in the background so you don't have to wait for all the update services to respond.

    Oh, and post.php should be found under the wp-admin directory.

    HandySolo,

    Thanks for the help... I removed them all and it is much faster. I took some time and added a few at a time to see which ones were hanging me up... I have narrowed it down to the following that I'm using:

    http://api.feedster.com/ping
    http://api.feedster.com/ping.php
    http://api.moreover.com/ping
    http://api.moreover.com/RPC2
    http://api.my.yahoo.com/RPC2
    http://api.my.yahoo.com/rss/ping
    http://blogsearch.google.com/ping/RPC2
    http://rpc.newsgator.com/
    http://rpc.pingomatic.com/
    http://rpc.blogrolling.com/pinger/
    http://rpc.icerocket.com:10080/

    Should I still look for more or remove some of these? I'm assuming the more services that ping the better your blog is picked-up... any truth to that?

    As long as you're not notifying the same services repeatedly, I'm sure you're fine.

    pingomatic.com ings icerocket.com, so you might consider dropping the icerocket.com one.
