WordPress is leaving sales messages on my site? (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I have some comments coming into my site (which are picked up as spam) and they don't show up in my visitors log. So, I went to my host and looked up the logs there and this is what I found:

    Http Code: 200 Date: Feb 03 18:07:00 Http Version: HTTP/1.0 Size in Bytes: 826
    Referer: -
    Agent: WordPress/2.7

    So what is the deal? Is someone, possibly a plugin developer doing this?

    How do I stop them? Banning doesn't seem to work.

    Thanks.

  2. No, it's probably a link-back (or a trackback, ping, whatever) from someone using WP as a spam blog. Nothing you can really do except delete them :/

    I'll second the answer by Ipstenu... it's a simple trackback.
    Seems this issue is resolved then. (why not close it?)
