[resolved] Quick, Easy Q about Pingbacks (6 posts)

    I have a quick, easy question about WordPress pingbacks.

    When someone writes an post and sends me a pingback, I assume it shows up as a new comment in my WP admin. Since I am working on localhost, I can't test this myself, but...

    What is the data sent to me in these comment fields?

    Name: (assume it's just the author's name)
    Email: (not important)
    URL: Is this the direct URL to their new post?
    Content: Is this the TITLE of their new post?

    Hi,

    Whenever you receive the pingback to blog ot will be as a comment so you will have to approve/delete from your blog admin in order to display on your blog.

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    Got it, thanks, but what data occupies these fields?

    Name: Is this the author's name or the TITLE of their new post?
    Email: (not important)
    URL: Is this the direct URL to their new post or to their website?
    Content: Is this the TITLE of their new post?
