    Hello there,

    I can see that in this page’s comment section, their is website url in place of profile name and wordpress user url. How they are doing like this. Most of the users who have commented have link to their official urls. Please help

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    I don’t see this. Every commenter on the post has their name linked to their WordPress.org profile page.

    You’re probably looking at the pingbacks!

    Thanks for the reply George but i am looking: How Most of the users who have commented have link to their official URLs? When I post a comment, its shows my WordPress profile URL but I see that in many comments, it takes you to their official website

    I understood what you said, James. But it seems you’re not getting what I’m saying. I believe you’re still mistakingly taking the pingbacks to be local comments.

    Please see the annotated screenshot below.

    The post you linked to has only 4 actual comments left by people who visited the post and left comments on the post: yours and 3 others. And all these 3 other comments have the commenters’ names linked to their WordPress profile, just like yours.

    All the other “comments” on the page — 10 of them as of now — that are linked to external “official URLs” are NOT actual local comments, but pingbacks.

    If you’re not familiar with pingbacks and trackbacks, I’ll advise you to take a quick read through the link I gave earlier, as I believe that’s the missing link in your question.

    And if I have indeed completely misunderstood your question, please cite one example of these comments where the commenter’s name is linked to an external “official URL” (a screenshot with a pointer will be excellent here), so I can take a look.

    Thank you.

    I got your point George and you clarified my query very well, can you let me know what I need to do to get a pingback like this from my blog. As I am writing on the same topics.

    can you let me know what I need to do to get a pingback like this from my blog.

    1) Ensure “Attempt to notify any blogs linked to from the post” in SETTINGS => DISCUSSIONS is checked in your WordPress dashboard.

    2) Add a link from your own post to the external blog post that you want to send a pingback to.
