It looks like the “Send Pings” client in Typo only supports the XML-RPC
implementation. The weblogs.com spec for the ping API
(http://www.weblogs.com/api.html) also has a REST implementation.
XML-RPC is certainly the more robust of the two, but the REST option is
used (even exclusively) by a lot of sites. Any idea how hard it would
be to implement a REST ping client?
thought, I just put the REST ping URL into the list with the XML-RPC
URLs and it worked fine. The REST ping is dumb enough that all it looks
at are the var in the GET request. Everything else is discarded.
Luckily, Typo doesn’t seem to look for a valid XML-RPC response.
