I have searched the wordpress support forums and the internet itself up to my limits, but I have not yet found a solution for my problem with not receiving incoming pings.
There are several posts on wordpress.org from people who seem to have the same problem, like
so I thought it would be OK to discuss this question in a new post.
I do not receive incoming pings on my blog!
(Please see http://www.saphod.net/wordpress-pingback-testing for details)
I have tried to ping my blog http://www.saphod.net from my other (test) blog saphod.wordpress.com, but I did not receive it. So I thought about giving a trackback a chance - and see: it worked!
I have tried several suggestions, like
- Is there a link to xmlrpc.php in my header?
- Does switching to the default theme change anything?
But none of it worked...
I also tried to use http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/TestTrack/, but somehow I do not manage to log in or even register, so I couldn't test it that way.
I hope ANYONE (c'mon, guys!) knows an answer to this... please! THIS IS FREAKING ME OUT! :-)
