Pings and Trackbacks

Does anyone out there know if the new MovablePoster app still pings everyone in your "ping" list?

When I post something via the MT enterface I can tell in the logs but not when I post from NewsGator/MovablePoster...



  1. Yes, it does. Any URL that you have set up in your autoping list will get pinged. This is a function of MT/TypePad, and not of the client posting utility.

    As far as the reason its not showing up in the logs, the only thing I can come up with is that its not the ping action that triggers the log entry, but rather the entry itself.

    If you want to add additional URLs to ping, you can do that via the Post Options tab at the bottom of the MovablePoster window.

    Please feel free to give me a shout if you have other questions.

  2. Thanks. I found out that I had a typo.. Once I fixed it, everything started working again.
