In an attempt to reduce the numbers of outbound pings a a new undocumented “feature” was introduced in WordPress 2.8.
Instead of notifing ping services every time a post is published or edited, pings are now sent once every hour, at the most.
I can’t find anything about this feature in the release notes for 2.8, was the feature merged in by accident?
I think this change is really bad for the wordpress community and has discussed it on my blog:
- The topic ‘Why is pings sent in delayed batches?’ is closed to new replies.
