[resolved] Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.) (3 posts)

    I recently upgrade to 3.2.1 and because I was getting so much spam through Trackbacks I went into the Discussion page and disabled the "Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.)" property.

    Sadly, since doing so, I am getting innondated with trackbacks? So I went into some of my posts where I had disabled the "Allow trackbacks and pingbacks on this page." property and they have all been reenabled?

    What is going on? Now I have a real mess to clean up. There is definitely some type of problem somewhere in the code!

    The following has resolve my problem for anyone else faced with the same problem. In your db admin panel, you need to run the following SQL statements:

    UPDATE wp_posts SET ping_status='closed' WHERE post_status = 'publish' AND post_type = 'post';
    UPDATE wp_posts SET ping_status='closed' WHERE post_status = 'publish' AND post_type = 'page';

  3. UPDATE wp_posts SET ping_status='closed' WHERE post_status = 'publish';

    That should get ALL your posts, pages, CPTs and attachments.

    Before running any SQL statements, please make a backup.
