Month: July 2003

We’ve got a new feature for testing: monthly and yearly archive pages for Manila.

If you run a Frontier/Manila server, and you’re comfortable using beta software, please help us test the feature by following the instructions in this message on the Manila-Dev mail list.

We’re working on getting TrackBack for Radio out the door, and have run into a problem. All the pieces seem to be working, except we haven’t been able to get Radio to register incoming TrackBack pings from a MovableType site.

This seems strange, since Manila is able to receive pings from MT just fine, and Radio is using basically the same code, but for some reason we’re getting different results.

When I try to ping my Radio site from my MT test site, I get an error saying that the ping failed, and to check the MT Activity Log, and while I see an error in the log, I don’t understand what it means. Here’s the error:

Ping ‘http://jake.userland.com/2003/07/24.html#a844’ failed: HTTP error: 500 Can’t locate HTML/HeadParser.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /var/www/cgi-bin/extlib /var/www/cgi-bin/lib /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .)

Any help from MT/TrackBack-savvy people would be much appreciated. Please send an email or leave a comment on this post if you have any ideas.

Thanks!

We just released a pair of changes for Manila, which improve performance when updating a Manila site’s home page. Dave had found that pinging Weblogs.Com was taking a long time. The changes just released make Manila send the pings to Weblogs.Com in a separate thread instead of waiting for a response.

To get the changes, update Manila.root.

This is a test post, but judging from the TrackBack links next to other posts on my home page, it looks like I’ve got TrackBack working for Radio.

Please try pinging this post. I’d like to know that it’s working for others as well.

Thanks!

Manila has full support for TrackBack, including both incoming and outgoing pings, with the option for sending outgoing pingsw automatically, based on links in posts to your Manila site.

A White House ‘Blog would kick some serious ass.
