Hate Pingbacks and Trackbacks? Me too. Pingback Killer disables of of WordPress’ built in pingback functionality.
This is a very simple plugin that…
1. Removes the
X-Pingback header WordPress sends
2. Causes any
bloginfo('ping_backurl') call to return an empty string
3. Hijacks the two options relating to pingbacks
4. Removes the /trackback/ rewrite rules
There are no options pages, it just works.

A Note about Deactivation
After deactivating this plugin, you may have to visit the permalinks settings page and hit “save” to get the trackback rewrite rules back.
None so far.
