[resolved] Can't receive trackbacks on posts, but do get incoming links on dashboard (4 posts)

    On the dashboard page under the Incoming Links section I get a list of 3rd party blog posts that have linked to individual posts on my blog but they're no longer going to trackbacks on my individual blog posts, and I don't know why.

    I recently upgraded to WP 2.3.3 but it was also happening even before that.

    I have trackbacks turned in options-discussion

    When I go to write a new post allow pings are checked

    For example, here's a post that I got a link from another blog that showed up in my Incoming Links section in my dashboard but not as a trackback on the actual post.

    my original blog post http://adultaddstrengths.com/2008/02/21/top-10-ways-to-manage-adult-adhd/

    the link to that post that doesn't show up as a trackback
    http://thesplinteredmind.blogspot.com/2008/02/excellent-checklist-for-adults-with.html

    Any suggestions?

    thanks

    Does Blogger/Blogspot send trackbacks or pingbacks?

    You might want to check out the plugin Kramer, but I didn't like all the spam I then had to moderate.

    addcoach, I dont use blogger, but I remember to have seen some post about blogger doesnt send ping/trackbacks, but you can do it using a thirdparty service.

    Check goole about this ;)

    Hi Lloyd and Korporate, I've had trackbacks from blogger blogs before but recently have not received trackbacks from blogger blogs that i used to get trackbacks from, they just wind up under the incoming links sections.

    in the past while I've had several post specific links from wp blogs, typepad blogs and blogger blogs that didn't end up in the comments section as trackbacks, but just in the incoming links section.

    I get hundreds of spams per day and thankfully akismit gets rid of most of em. would i have to go over them manually if i used the kramer plugin Lloyd? or would akismit deal with em?
