One thing I finally noted with WordPress 1.5 is that there’s no more links-update-cache.xml file. Instead, under the wp-admin folder, we now have update-links.php.
If you crack that file open in your favorite text editor, you’ll see no trace of weblogs.com, which has a tendency to break occassionally. Instead, I see api.pingomatic.com.
If you were using the Update Linkroll plugin from Carthik (2fargon in the forums) back in 1.2.2, it won’t work anymore. You’ll either have to set a cron job or wait until someone creates a plugin. Well, you could also directly go to the file by bookmarking it and visiting it occassionally, but that’d be lame.
For the cron job, you’d need to run this periodically:
If any of this is incorrect, I’ll edit this post later. For now, this was my excuse to give w.bloggar v4 another shot. Nope, no dice.
