pingback The v0.3 pingback client for Radio is now available, it now fully implements the auto-discovery aspects and also spawns off a new thread to do the pingback work, so as not to slow down upstreaming.
pingback This post should pingback this earlier post now. it did :)
string.urlSplit grhhhh, string.urlSplit doesn't split the fragementIdentifier off from the path
pingback OK, the archive pages are now pingback enabled, you should be able to register pingbacks for new posts. I haven't got the results integrated into the weblog pages yet, but you can see an overall list of pingbacks. The pingback server is implemented with Charles Cook's excellent XML-RPC.NET library, thanks Charles! The archive pages advertise pingback via the <link rel='pingback' href='foo'> tag, so this won't work with the Radio pingback client I did. Next stop is to get that fixed
PB and TB Pingback v. Trackback. I'm always looking for ways to extend the GeekBlog further into the world of RSSing and blogging, and now I've found two specs for tracking links back to one's weblog: pingback, and trackback. I need a show of hands here--which one is more frequently used? Should I implement both? [The Mountain of Worthless Information] Trackback seems more widely used, mainly because its bundled in MT now, but pingback seems much easier to implement. FWIW, my plan is to get pingback up and running [client done, server almost done], then look at trackback again.
XML-RPC Unfortunately before XML-RPC can hold this sort of position in the scheme of things the protocol needs to mature and allow strings containing the full range of Unicode characters. A protocol allowing only 7-bit ASCII characters in strings is a throwback to last century and has no place in today's WWW. [Cook Computing] Whilst I understand that Dave wants XML-RPC frozen, I agree with Charles, this really needs fixing.
