Post Became Comment Weirdness? (6 posts)

    Today I posted something with a link to a previous post. For some reason, WP placed a jumbled version of the new post in the comment section from the old post. I've deleted it now so I'm afraid I can't show an example, but has anyone had this issue?

    Your blog is set to "ping" the URIs from the post, so what you've seen was the ping sent from your newest post to the one quoted.

    Interesting feature. WordPress is certainly very feature-rich compared to my old journalling tools.

    So...is there a way to tell it not to ping itself? ;) Or do I have to turn that option off. I do like to occassionally refer to previous posts, though I don't have to, I guess.

    If you're linking to posts on your site, refer to them by the path from the root:

    /wordpress/2005/05/25/whateveritscalled/

    rather than

    http://yoursite.com/wordpress/2005/05/25/whateveritscalled/

    That will stop the internal pings.

    Ah! Ha!

    Now I wonder if that sort of work around can work if I'm linking from one journal to the other...Though I do wonder if it isn't time to remerge them...hmmmm...
