Support » Plugin: Simple Trackback Disabler » New Trackbacks Still Showing

  • Strange thing here, I have used this plugin to disable all pingbacks and trackbacks as well as delete existing ones. The plugin panel shows existing ones at 0 now, however a different plugin, Broken Link Checker, shows more and more trackbacks every single day ( they show as broken links however and don’t seem to have a source) Any idea what this could be?

    Thank you!

    I am not exactly sure what that would be. The current version of Simple Trackback Disabler is fairly simplistic in its operation. When it removes trackbacks, pingbacks, and comments it looks through the comments table in the database for these specification items depending upon what button you press. The only think I can think of is the attack or compromise might be injecting records into the database table that don’t use trackbacks, pingbacks, and comments as the record type. If that is the case then Simple Trackback Disabler won’t see these entries. You may want to look at the comments table in your database directly if you have access to it. Hope that helps.
