Support » Fixing WordPress » Disable self-pingback

  • Whenever I link to my own blog in a post, I get a pingback. This isn’t very useful when it’s the same site! Is there any way to disable this thing (like no-to-me does for e-mails)?

  • I would also like to know how to disable it.

    Why is it even enabled default? Very unnecessary?

    I’m wondering the same thing.

    Use relative path (instead of absolute) and you’ll be fine.

    I tried an ugly solution to the “problem” (I don’t want my own post to become comments in my other posts that i link to):

    I just added my blogs TITLE to the exclude list under Settings -> Discussion

    I.e.: – my blog

    Hopefully no one writes exactly that in their comments. 😉

    Seem to work fine. Is it a VERY bad solution?



    Apparently using an absolute path without the domain (e.g. “/folder/file.html”) prevents it.

    What would be great would be something that removed the domain from any that matched my own, for links and assets (i.e. images).

    I use a development environment that closely matched the live server, and it runs with a slightly different domain. Transfering sites from one place to another would be much easier if you could automatically use absolute URLs without the domain.

    To stop self pinging, just use this plugin: No Self Pings
