Ping Problem?

Since version 2.7 of WordPress, there have been several issues that Pingbacks in WordPress don't work. WordPress works with it in the request-function (wp-includes/cron.php), not to be confused with the wp-cron.php. There is a time limit of 0:01 seconds set, which is not sufficient under all conditions. It is known and the developers of WordPress have not changed the entry intentionally, with the reference that it runs smoothly under many configurations, see Trac ticket 8923.

This problem in 2.8 continues to be an issue in various installations. Who wants to change the value should set it to 1, and should no longer have problems. All other users can only hope that it will be changed in 2.8.1.

Original code in WordPress 2.8

$cron_url = get_option( 'siteurl' ) . '/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron';
wp_remote_post( $cron_url, array('timeout' => 0.01, 'blocking' => false, 'sslverify' => apply_filters('https_local_ssl_verify', true)) );

after change the value

	
$cron_url = get_option( 'siteurl' ) . '/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron';
wp_remote_post( $cron_url, array('timeout' => 1, 'blocking' => false, 'sslverify' => apply_filters('https_local_ssl_verify', true)) );

WordPress is based on the so-called Hook-System. This serves WordPress, and all extensions to involve functions in a certain place. The Hooks are not only to hook, but can also be used in custom extensions and thus create a better overview and offer additional interfaces for more possibilities to develop. Especially the second option is interesting when you create a theme, which aims to offer a variety of interfaces, or create a Plugin which can be expand by other authors or serve as a framework.

Set Meta Links For WordPress Plugins

In the past I explained in the article „How To Improve WordPress Plugins“ , how you can expand Plugins with useful functions and therefore optimize their usage. One of the suggestions was a simple link to the options page of your Plugin.
With WordPress 2.8 the Plugin page will be a little bit different and now there will be a hook, which you can use to enter a link, which is even more convenient.

WordPress Proxysupport

Who is using WordPress in an intranet environment, will quickly realize, that despite internet connection, no feed content gets loaded in the backend. In general, it's because of the proxy of the company. So far WordPress wasn't particularly flexible in this case. As of WordPress 2.8 that will change and new constants make ensure that you now can enter the proxy directly to wp-config.php.

Publishing Extend of WordPress

Not always you want to solve things like WordPress provides and you seek for a different solution. Sometimes you don't need various applications of the backend to publish posts.
A simple example would be a form, no matter where, where the contents of the form should automatically published on your WordPress blog. Alternatively, you could send it with a different status, and therefore only publish them if the admin approves it.
For a good start, here is the function, which is pretty powerful and for all processes of the publication responsible.
