A replacement for the ping module for Drupal. It allows pinging of multiple sites (configurable via a web interface).
If a site is unreachable, the ping request will be sent again during the next cron.php run (the retry time is increased exponentially in order to avoid "hammering" the service).
It is possible to automatically select the pinged sites by the taxonomy terms assigned to the node, the node type, and whether the node is published on the site's front page. The sites can be pinged either during the cron run or immediately after a node submission.
- Create a stable 6.x-1.0 release
- Port 6.x-1.0 to 7.x-1.0
- Create a 2.0 release for both Drupal 6 and 7 - probably containing additional pluggable ping mechanisms like PubSubHubbub
December 21-st, 2012: the project changed its owner, active development resumes in approximately 1 week.
