I’m having a huge problem with WordPress in conjunction with Technorati and I’m not sure who the problem lies with.
I was using feedburner for autodiscovery and had heard that Technorati was having problems with feedburner feeds, but after removing the feedburner feed for autodiscovery — pings to technorati still never show up on their site, despite that fact that the page source shows correctly tagged technorati tags.
I validated all my feeds.
I am using the technotag plugin, but the plugin does not appear to have anything to do with it, since the tags are formatted correctly, unless they cannot be enclosed in a span class.
I have set up three blogs for various people using wordpress and all of them are having this problem. They each have a feedburner feed, but eliminating it from autodiscovery sections does not change the Technorati results. Even manually pinging technorati doesn’t work.
Can someone with WordPress please look into this. I’m sure were are not the only ones having this problem, the first blog I set up was under 18.104.22.168 and at first it was having no problems until I upgraded it to 22.214.171.124. The other two were set up under 126.96.36.199 and they had problems from the get go. Not sure if this is coincidence or not.
I’ve emailed Technorati, but apparently it takes several weeks to hear back anything from them. I’m getting a lot of heat to just switch these to other blogging software, but I love WordPress and don’t want anything to do with that hassle.
Does anyone in support know what is going on here or can find out?
