Loading execute-pings.php automatically 'cancelled' (3 posts)

    Most of the time when I log in to the admin area I see the dashboard fairly quickly, then clicking on e.g. manage fails to load the next page. In Safari's activity manager (although the problem isn't specific to Safari, or Mac, or my home connection) I see this:


    with "cancelled" in the status area.

    Any ideas how to resolve this?

    Is there anybody out there?

  3. In the footer of the admin pages, there's a hidden iframe which is loading the execute-pings.php file. This handles pingbacks and trackbacks that are queued and waiting for processing. These generally take a while to run, so if you have a lot of them queued up, they won't finish running before you go to the next page on the admin screen. You'll see the cancelled thing, but that's perfectly normal, as you've changed pages. Eventually, it'll run through all of those that are queued and it'll stop doing it.
