Midori, that would be nice if someone had put some content into the Pingback and Trackback section of the the Intro to Blogs.
Laling, this article is a bit dated, but should be sufficient: http://ln.hixie.ch/?start=1033171507&count=1
I understand the whys and wherefores about trackback and pingback, but it would be incredibly useful if someone could point me in the direction of somewhere that explains where one is to use these URIs.
podz – Thanks re: Allow Pings and ping-only-ness.
There’s no “Trackback URI” form option on the posting area at all. :-/
Browser is Firefox 1.0 release on WinXP.
WP is 1.21, few plugins, no hacks.
P.S. Thanks for the help, blimey you lot are sharp!
Yes, a few days ago. I’ll download and update again, and see if that fixes it. I was just downloading the wp-admin and other folders just now to see if the input was in there somewhere, but commented out or something. I’ll post back how I get on.
Any further advice appreciated, and that’s for all the help so far.
Yep, thanks! I think I must have selected “no trackbacks” when I installed, but it seems strange that there’s no mechanism to change this option outwith the installation routine.
Woo. And yay! And such.
Correct me if i am wrong, but isn’t there a basic and advnaced editor for entering posts? Might the basic editor not have the Trackback box? All i know is that I use the advanced editor option and have never had an issue.
