I don't see URI for trackback anywhere (4 posts)

    Aren't I supposed to see a link to the trackback uri on my forum somewhere at the end or beginning of a post? Permalinks appear to work --when I hover over the title of a post the pop up shows the permalink. The comments work. So how does someone trackback to ME?

    I see forums that have a trackback uri area. Why don't I? Or how can I fix? Thanks in advance.

    WordPress does trackbacks automatically. Anyone linking to one of your posts will be automatically "discovered." You'll see the trackback appear in your comments unless you've disabled that function.

    I haven't disabled it. Yet it has never appeared. This isn't another Safari issue is it?

    I have been reading and reading. I am using widgets and several different themes which can be switched by the user. I note in the comments.php file for the default wordpress theme is this:

    <?php comments_rss_link(__('RSS feed for comments on this post.')); ?>
    <?php if ( pings_open() ) : ?>
    " rel="trackback"><?php _e('TrackBack URI'); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    That is not in another theme's comment.php. Is it that I have to add this to each theme in the comment.php files?

    Ok I fixed the fact that the uri trackback and rss feed link was not in any theme except the wordpress default. Now how do I get the links accurate. For instance, the trackback does not end in trackback, but with a page number. Same with rss feed. It ends with the page number.

    Thanks in advance.
