[closed] Trackback to my WP2.0 doesn't work (179 posts)

    Hi,
    Someone did a trackback to a post in my newly installed WP2.0, but i don't get any notification of this. I have a custom blog address format, and followed the instructions of what to put in the .htaccess. Everything else seems to work fine. Is there any way i can test tracking back to my own blog easily ?

    tamba has a test blog up you can use to test trackbacks.

    Thanks. It doesn't seem to work with that blog either, though :( Anyone have any suggestions on what to test next ?

    I found those as well. I didn't test them yet, because my understanding was that these patches solved problems *sending* trackbacks. My problem is that i don't receive them. At least, unless both systems i sent the trackback from are buggy of course.

    Ok, before we go further, I have to ask the silly question.
    Do you have Allow link notifications from other Weblogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.) enabled in your dashboard / options / discussion.

    Also, this may sound really crazy, but try to trackback to the article URL itself. I had someone do that, and it showed up as a trackback.
    see this here
    If you want comment in that thread, and give me a trackback URL to trackback to, and I'll use that article to send one to you. Kind of test both blogs at the same time.
    I had implemented the 2163 trac and haven't tested it since then.

    Right, I meant to confirm that i had the option enabled earlier, but forgot that. So yes, it's enabled.

    I tried trackbacking to the article itself (actually, i seem to have tracked back from another article in my blog), and that indeed worked! The trackback URL is the one here: http://spike.ulyssis.org/blog/psi-privacy/trackback/

    So, what does this mean ? That trackbacking is working, but that the other blogs that tracked back have a bug ?

    EDIT: I added a trackback to your thread from the post i mentioned above, but it doesn't seem to show up.

    Hmm.. Yeah, I think my trackbacks are still broke. Did you use the actual tb URL or the article URL.
    Well, let me try to trackback to your article above and see what happens.
    I think I might be having permalink issues or something.

    Ok, I used Tamba's site a few times, and I think what we're getting are pingbacks, not trackbacks.

    I'm going to scour the trac and nightlies and see if anything has changed in those files and see if I can't get it rolling again.

    It looks like the TB I sent to your article is either not being received by you, or my sending of tb's is not working.

    sigh... fun fun fun...

    Do trackbacks from WP1.5 work? That would suggest a WP2.0 "sending" problem. if not, then it indicates a "receiving" problem (or both). Archshrk.com is still WP1.5 if that helps. Try this article, http://archshrk.com/2005/12/worpress-20-released/

    archshrk, I sent a trackback to your article. Guess it's a sending AND receiving problem... sigh..

    archshrk, I just got your trackback. Could you possibly tell me which URL you used?
    thanks a bunch!

    citeewurkor, I have the same exact problem. I can send and receive pingbacks but trackbacks are not working in either direction. :(

    I am following this thread closely.

    makemead, I just sent one to you, too. Your fix a poll article.

    remko, I think that comment you got was actually a trackback. Check it out. Looks like we're receiving?
    archshrk, are you still using 1.5?

    Ok, I think it's safe to assume that our 2.0 installations are RECEIVING trackbacks fine. We are just unable to SEND them.
    This would be evident by the fact that remko CAN send and we can receive his.
    So we need to figure out why we can't send trackbacks.
    right?
    And pingbacks are ok.

    Thanks citeewurkor! How long should it take to show up?

    Well, it should be immediate. I think I am currently unable to send trackbacks. But I can receive them.
    I'm going to try to replace the WP 2.0 file "wp-trackback.php" with the WP 1.5 version and umm... I guess try to send another one.

    wish me luck... I'm sure I'm fixing to break my blog... :)

    I just installed WP1.5 on my server and I received a trackback on my 2.0 blog from it. I have not yet received citeewurkor's trackback though.

    Ok, I replaced above mentioned file and tried to send a TB to archshrk, makemead, and remko.

    {crosses fingers...}

    I just tried installing the old version of wp-trackback.php and it didn't work.

    hmm.. What about xmlrpc.php
    Think replacing that one would do it?
    I'm gonna try.

    Yes, that's the second patch I've tried with no effect whatsoever.

    This seems to be a feature of 2.0

    Ping Delay Removed - Rather than pinging trackbacks and pingbacks when the post is saved (this causes the delay you see when posting to WP1.5), the pings are attempted via a different method that allows the admin interface to respond more quickly.

    I'd rather have slow trackbacks that work rather than quick trackbacks that don't work.

    makeread, I just got a trackback from you
    It got trapped by spam Karma. I released it.
    Looks like I can receive good.
    I just implemented this "fix"..
    http://trac.wordpress.org/changeset/3384
    But I don't know if that had anything to do with it.
    Did you use the actual trackback URL?
