SEB now pinging blogrolling.com correctly.

Thanks to a little input from Rick Ellis, SEB is now using the proper URL when pinging Blogrolling.com and the other update notification services so everyone who’s been wondering why my updates haven’t been showing up on Blogrolling will once again see when SEB has new content. The problem has to do with the variable used when pinging and will be addressed in an upcoming 1.1 release of EE, but until then I’ve hacked the code slightly to allow the proper URL to be sent. A minor inconvenience at worst.

  1. Sure thing. Open up system/cp/cp.publish.php and look for the function labeled:

    //————————————————-
    // Send Pings
    //————————————————-
     
    Rick says it’s around line 1850 or so. Then add $blog_url = “http://yourdomain.com/”; someplace in the function. I put it right underneath the $sql = line like so:

    $sql = “SELECT server_name, server_url, port FROM exp_ping_servers WHERE”;
    $blog_url = “http://yourdomain.com/”;

    Save and upload back to your server. Rick says version 1.1 will separate these different variables out so this won’t be necessary, but this should hold us over until that comes out.

    Incidentally, are there enough EE users reading this blog that it would be worth it for me to start a category just for tips, tricks, and hacks and stuff?
