Pingbacks and pretty permalinks - continued (3 posts)

    After a great deal of frustration, I think I have finally narrowed down why some posts pingback with the full, pretty permalink, and some pingback with blogurl/?p=###. (I previously thought it had to do with something getting changed during upgrades.)

    When I create a post and hit Publish immediately, it uses the full structure. If I save it as a draft first, or click on Advanced Editing, it uses the post ID instead.

    Now I just need to figure out the new bug system...

    This problem hit me while I was writing plugins, so I found the cause and wrote the FixBack WordPress plugin to fix it. I also updated the bug report with the details, so hopefully it will be fixed in a future version. See my post WordPress pingback and trackback bug for lots more information.
