|How to Make A Blog Pinging Site like Weblogs.com?|
I want to make a blog pinging site like weblogs.com
so when a blogger (using blogger or MT or Wordpress) hit's the SUBMIT button to Publish their blog, the blog automatically gets sent to the ping list.
I know that MT has a place where you can list servers to ping
but how do I get the information once the ping is sent to my server?
I plan on doing this in PHP.
You need to look into xmlrpc, a good start would be [php.net...]
Also, take a look at the WP source code to understand what kind of data you're going to get.
I have been to that website and another XMLRPC website and have been reading them for the past few weeks.
what I need to understand is, what kind of information would I get?
a ping is just a packet of small data... what kind of data would my server receive from a ping?
can someone show me a sample? can a ping include an RSS feed?
if so, then I can take the ping and parse the RSS feed.. if it is different than the previous RSS feed for that site then I can make an update to my site
is that all I have to do?
