This module contains an XML-RPC extension to support pingback http://www.hixie.ch/specs/pingback/pingback pings.
Requires the comments plugin, but you don’t have to enable comments on your blog for pingbacks to work.
This plugin comes with Pyblosxom. To install, do the following:
Add Pyblosxom.plugins.xmlrpc_pingback to the load_plugins list of your config.py file
Set the xmlrpc_trigger variable in your config.py file to a trigger for this plugin. For example:
py["xmlrpc_trigger"] = "RPC"
Add to the <head> section of your head template:
<link rel="pingback" href="$(base_url)/RPC" />
This test blog, maintained by Ian Hickson, is useful for testing. You can post to it, linking to a post on your site, and it will send a pingback.
