  • When I publish an article, Cleantalk is getting putting my article and saying that it’s a pingback & trackback. How do I get it so that it does not do this?

    With the validation phase, should I set the validation setting to: “Any link beginning with the following URLs is allowed:” (with my website link)?

  • Oh… Also, I have cleantalk and akismet. Is it advisable to keep your plugin?

    You can turn off pingback & trackback for a specific post.
    You can do it in the “Discussion” pane. Just uncheck the checkbox next to the “Allow trackback & pingback on this page”.

    I don’t have an issue when other ping or track. What happens is, when I publish an article, it automatically pings & tracks ME. So it is making me ping & track MYSELF. Then it shows a potion of my article that I had just written. How come this is happening? How do I make it so that I am not pinging & tracking myself?

    Yup. That didn’t work though so I got rid of it. Something must be overriding it. Any thoughts?
