I'm a happy WordPress user since July 2005. I'm very interested in the technical aspects of blogging and I like to develop solutions to would-be problems.

I have created a plugin: Smart Update Pinger. It replaces the built-in update ping functionality. Instead of always pinging when saving a post, the plugin only pings when the post has not previously been published. Edits of posts are �?silent�?, in contrast with the default behaviour.

Motivation: When you edit an older post and ping a service, the service either shows your blog’s URL or the latest post’s URL. Never the edited post’s—unless it is the latest, of course. This is misleading and could even get you banned for pingspamming unless you’re careful.
