Ping.sg has just been upgraded to v0.60 beta. There are quite a few changes in this update, the most notably one would be the addition of widgets.
If you are a ping.sg user, you can now proudly announce on your blog that you are one by displaying one of the stickers we have created for you. There are currently 3 designs, simply pick one to your liking at the widgets page.
On top of the stickers, there is also now a latest pings widget so that bloggers can display the latest pings on the sidebars of their blogs. Like stickers, we have made everything as easy as copy and pasting code so bloggers can display the latest pings in Singapore without much hassle. There are some options available for users to choose from so it would fit nicely to their layout. The instructions is available at, again, the widgets page.
If you are one forgetful pinger, fret not. The highly demanded password retrieval feature is now here. You can simply reset your password by filling in your email address here. You can’t have forgotten your email address as well, can you? If that is the case, simply register yourself a new account.
It’s been exactly a week since ping.sg was launched.
If you’re wondering about the response so far, as when I am typing this, there have been:
77 registered pingers
66 registered blogs
With your support, ping.sg will continue to grow to be a fully community-based portal for Singapore bloggers. We are looking forward to implement more features and hopefully becoming more user-friendly and thus attain more users. We are aiming towards the goal of building a thorough database of Singapore blogs and for bloggers to build communities.
Please help us to help expand ping.sg. If you have tried ping.sg and have some suggestions and/or questions, please feel free to fire them here. We promise to take every single comment posted seriously and to reply each and every single questions and suggestions posted. Remember, ping.sg is a community site, we need your help!
Thanks to the early adopters. Hopefully we will grow ping.sg to be a better place together!
Even though the best way to do that is via pingback service, which has yet to be implemented with the current version of ping.sg, it is still possible to set up blogging softwares to auto send trackback whenever a new entry is published.
(If you know of any other plugins for auto trackback for other blogging softwares, please let us know.)
One thing I really like about ping.sg is its being a fully-community based meta blog, no time being wasted waiting for ‘pings’ to be approved.
It’s just nice to see the event which has just took place being blogged and pinged in a matter of minutes. Thanks, Brennan.
I personally thank all of you for trying out this service, ping.sg still has a long way to go until it is grown to a full-featured community-based meta blog. Thanks for choosing to grow with us.
