GEEKLOG BLOCK: weblogs.com PING block WEBLOGS.com is a site that lists the links to weblogs that have just updated. To participate you or your weblog needs to "PING" the weblog site. the quick & html way is to just do this: 1. create a new block called PING WEBLOGS 2. block name : pingweblogs 3. block type : NORMAL 4. Normal Block Options Block Content:<center><a href="http://newhome.weblogs.com/pingSiteForm?name=NAMEOFYOURBLOG&url=http%3A%2F%2Fyoursite.com">PING WEBLOGS.COM</a></center> 5. be sure to change the NAMEOFYOURBLOG and yoursite.com to your infos. 6. Access Rights Group: ROOT 7. Permissions: CHECK BOXES FOR OWNER ONLY!!!!!! 8. We are doing this so the PING WEBLOGS geeklog block only shows up for admins. 9. Now when you have a new article/story posted be sure to click the ping weblogs link to have your site listed on their huge list. Conclusion: basically just have the link anywhere in your admin area. You could automate this, see story from: http://ironfeather.com/cgi-bin/bbs/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=20;t=19 the php code from : http://www.yaysoft.com/weblogs.phps have phun! stevyn

Thank you. This was BEAUTIFUL.
With slight modifications, it also works perfectly with TECHNORATI.COM.

Code for that is:

I threw in the subdirectory because my weblog needed one, and the target="new" bit because after I ping, I just want to shut those windows and still be on my site.

is there any way to automate this with each story that's added?

You could try to automate it with a cronjob
