Under the category of what was someone thinking!
When I read this morning that since the introduction of WordPress version 2.8 that WordPress only Pings sites once and hour I just could not believe. Can you imagine having the hottest news story of the year and when you publish your post that WordPress can wait as much as an hour before it pings the variety of sites telling them you have new content to be indexed.
This change was introduced obviously by someone that does not have a clue on how the real world web works these days. So a word of warning if you have published a couple of articles in a row and have a big scoop to publish you better post the scoop first so that it pings the quickest or hope someone comes out with a simple patch.
Note: PowerPress users do not need to worry we ping iTunes separately so this bug does not affect the updating of your show on iTunes.
We punched out the PowerPress update this evening, and as I promised last night I told you we would have some video for you to watch. I am going to send you over to a page that has two videos linked that will get you up to speed with what we released.
Before I send you over there let me run you through the update.
- We added a podcast statistics summary to the WordPress dashboard.
- Blubrry Podcast hosting customers can have their ID3 Tags written automatically.
- We added Category Cast, podcasters can now setup categories as independent podcast feeds.
- The final update which is the most important is our new 3 Step Podcast Publishing Process
Check out the New Feature in Action and watch the Video as a picture is worth a 1000 words!
Come back after the jump and let me know what you think!
