Dashboard Incoming Links Not Updating (4 posts)

    I was hoping someone could help me with an issue that has recently started happening. On my dashboard, under Latest Activity > Incoming Links, for some reason the incoming links section has just stopped updating. When I click on the more link and go to Technorati, I see new links, but for some reason, they are no longer updating on my dashboard. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

    I and a friend have just noticed the same thing; for me it stopped updating a couple of weeks ago, I think:

    Perhaps Technorati has changed something. This is the line of code in wp-admin/index-extra.php that pulls the links:

    $rss = @fetch_rss('http://feeds.technorati.com/cosmos/rss/?url='. trailingslashit(get_option('home')) .'&partner=wordpress');

    Any ideas? I'm on WP 2.2.1

    I found that doing this fixes it for me:

    $rss = @fetch_rss('http://feeds.technorati.com/cosmos/rss/?url=mywebsite.com&partner=wordpress');

    Just replace mywebsite.com with your uri.
    Soemething to do with the trailing slash in the original line of code???

    Can someone come up with a tidier solution. It seems that using a forward slash screws things up; and of course the uri shouldn't be hard-coded...
