I just been spending the past 2 hours messing around with my Blog settings trying to find why when I post a new entry, blog directories and Technorati are not being notified (PING).

I use ecto to blog, and checked and rechecked the ecto settings as well, all was good and the proper ping recipients were set, I even opened a new topic on the ecto forums asking for help.

Then I open up a new post window to write my frustration and I notice this checkbox labeled “PING”, right there on the post window, in plain view:

Ping1

What a bafoon … sure enough once I selected that ON, I could see ecto pinging the blog directories.

Ping2
