WP_PingPreserver

Description

For a while, I’ve been a bit annoyed with WordPress losing pings (those automatic links on your blog when someone links to you) anytime someone links to more than one of my posts. It turns out WordPress’s comment flood prevention is getting in the way. This plugin prevents WordPress from discarding these pings.

Installation

  1. Unzip wp_pingpreserver.zip.
  2. Upload wp_pingpreserver.php to wp-content/plugins.
  3. Activate in the Plugins menu.

FAQ

Does this increase vulnerability to comment floods?

Possibly but I think only slightly. The increased risk should be minor as pings are still limited to 5 pings in 75 seconds (WordPress default is 1 comment per 15 seconds).
