Is there anyway to control the web links that you see in the “incoming links” on the WordPress dashboard? I have another blog that I always link back to my other blog from, and I don’t need to see those links showing up there.
The ‘incoming links’aren’t even about my blog, its a metion of my blog in a Usenet newsgroup signature in posts. Over 100 of these things. They are just getting in the way of my Dashboard. Only 2 of them link to actual posts in my blog. The rest are just in the way and are basically useless.
I have looked all over wp-admin, no trackback.php installed in any blogs.
It looks like wp-admin/index-extra.php is how they get in, but I don’t see where that php file is being used. I even did a search on my hard drive using ‘agent ransack’ file search to find mentions of index-extra.php
I logged out of all browser windows. Closed the browser. Cleared cache. Logged back into my blog, the incoming links are still there. The 2 instances of my blog linking back to itself are still there to.
I only see this in wp2.3. Not there in my blogs still on 2.2.3
The links google is showing are coming from blogspot and are from a profileless location called strangestories888
Well, same as I commented in other topics. This is NOT resolved. What the “specialists” don’t understand (yet) is that the Incoming Links problems has nothing to do with Google, technorati, whatever. The newer versions of WP have a different PHP approach that seems to be unstable under certain circumstances. I even installed the plugin to get back to technorati – useless as you cannot get “back” from something if there is NOTHING. I think it has something to do with the location of WordPress on the server, the type of server or whatever I don’t understand.Read http://wordpress.org/support/topic/115241#post-585554
