I just recently put up a new blog and it's full of content. I also have a script I wrote running on the blog that shows randomized news headlines that are related to the blog topic everytime the blog is viewed. I realize that posting new comments or pages to the blog will cause wordpress to ping all the URLs I have in the ping list. But what I'd like to do is have the capability to force a ping without having to add a new post or comment. I searched around on Google and I did find a plugin that had a 'Ping Now' button that forced an immediate ping, but the plugin was old and didn't work with any WP version beyond 1.2 Does anyone know of an easy way to force a ping with the latest WP version 2.5.1? Thanks!
