How do I edit the text that is sent with a Pingback or Trackback?
You can edit the text sent by clicking “Edit Comment” in the Administration Panel > Manage > Comments
Except most weblogs don’t allow me to edit the comments that I send them. So they still end up with the trackback text that looks like crap.
So I ask again…

Can we revive this? I have the same question. He’s referring to the trackbacks/pingbacks his site sends to the target site.
What file / parameter do we need to change to make the pingback a little more worthwile..
Here’s one of my recent ones and it looks like it just took the last line of my post which was like 4 words….
(sorta NSFW — just bikini pix tho)
Coincidentally the pingback below mine on the site above is just as worthless 🙂
RE: trackback text, whatever is in the excerpt field is sent as the trackback text (up to a certain amount of characters)
ok…. duh 🙂
I never fill in my excerpts — I thought when an excerpt is required, WP automatically takes the first 150 characters or something from your post?
