Only Self Pings

Description

Pingbacks are automatic notifications added (as a kind of comment) to posts you link to in your articles. Whether a visitor is reading something way back in your archives or your most recent post, the pingbacks makes sure she can easily find any follow ups.

“Only Self Pings” solves this by only allowing pings to your own site (and whatever URLs you add to the whitelist).

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
