[closed] pingbacks y trackbacks not working (18 posts)

    Hello to all in this sunny summer day.
    Well, we have, in the same cloud, 8 webs. Three of them form more than 10 years and 5 form less than one year.
    The "comments options" in settings > comments, are exactly in the 8 webs.
    In the old ones, (diarioelectronicohoy.com, fibraopticahoy.com, industriaembebidahoy.com) I cannot get make work the pingbacks and in the "one year old" (cablesyconectoreshoy.com, comunicacionesinalambricashoy.com, instaladoresdetelecomhoy.com, seguridadprofesionalhoy.com, instrumentacionhoy.com) works perfectly.
    In all of them, the WordPress installation in completely new (I erase all WordPress files and put the last version), but nothing.
    As I don't understand too much, perhaps is something in my SQL tables and not in the WordPress itself.

    Please, could any good person help me? Is there any SQL table to “pick” the option to pingback work?
    Or any other way to “test” if pingbacks works or not?
    Or any idea?
    I look in the Spanish and English forum but I cannot find the answer to my problem.
    Many thanks from Spain.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress.

    You need to carry out all of the steps I suggested above. This is part of the troubleshooting process.

    no, no, i have the problem because i need to usethese two plugins: backwpup and Mailpress.
    but the weird is that EXACTLY SAME plugin and configuration is in our 8 webs and the problem of NOT pingback is only in the three old ones (diarioelectronicohoy.com, fibraopticahoy.com, industriaembebidahoy.com)
    so, still the same problem.
    please, help¡

    Do you only have problems if you have both of these plugins active? Or do pingbacks stop working if you activate either one?

    Hi Esmi and thanks,
    pingbacks stop working when activate either one?
    but only in these three "old" webs, and NOT in the other 5 webs. All exactly with the same parameters.
    thank you

    Esmi - I'm having the same problem. However, I've tried doing all the steps above (except I didn't have the twenty eleven theme but the twenty twelve) in your 1st reply and still the problem persists.

    I'm on shared hosting it appears and all my files are 644 permissions and the folders are 755 as it says it should be on the WordPress page you linked to also.

    On another shared hosting account (different URL) I've set up a test wordpress blog to test the trackbacks/pingbacks functions and it works for that.

    So I'm thinking of attempting to set up another WordPress blog from scratch on the same domain as my problematic blog and seeing if that works. if it does, is there a way of moving my posts, comments, etc. to that new installation without it causing the same error?

    Thanks for your help.
