Registering Additional Ping Servers
When new entries are created, and “External Notifications” are enabled for a given blog, then Movable Type will optionally ping a set of services chosen by the user or system administrator. These “pings” notify the designated services of new content that is available on your blog or web site. This list of ping services is easily extended by registering new pingable endpoints via the Movable Type registry.
config.yaml demonstrates how to register a new ping server:
name: Example Plugin for Movable Type id: Example description: This plugin is an example plugin for Movable Type. version: 1.0 ping_servers: myping: label: 'My Ping Service' url: 'http://ping.somedomain.com/foo'
When registering a ping server, the following properties must be specified:
label - The display name of the ping server that will be presented to the user from within the application
url - The url to ping when the service is selected by the user
