Support » Fixing WordPress » Sending trackback and ping to technorati not working

  • Hello

    I’ve notice, since I updated from WordPress 1.5 to WordPress 2.0 sending trackback to another blog doesn’t work anymore (when I write a post and anter the URI in the “trackback” field).

    Also when I publish a new post, it doesn’t ping to Technorati anymore. And “” is properly entered in Options / Writing / Update Services.

    Even a manual Ping doesn’t seem to work (Ping / Update Ping)

    I don’t know if the trackback and the technorati ping problems are linked together, but does anybody have any idea why it is not working for me ?

    Thanks, regards.

  • I am noticing the same thing. I don’t see my trackbacks appearing anywhere.

    Example: I took the Trackback URI ( from a post at (a trackback testing WordPress site) and put it into the “Send Trackbacks To” text box on one of my posts ( I then saved the post. Yet, I do not see my comment / trackback appearing on the Test Track post.

    Any input or feedback would be appreciated.

    Hello Again —

    Still looking for some feedback and help with this. Are trackbacks working for other people using 2.0.1?

    Thanks in advance; your response and help is much appreciated.

    One more time; Anyone have any ideas? Sorry to be a pest, but, this is critical functionality that doesn’t appear to be working.

    Thanks again in advance.

    What version of WP are you using ?

    The testblog sent one to you I see ?

    Who is your host ?

    “I then saved the post.”
    Saved or Published ? The two are not the same.
    Publish a post with a new tb link.

    > Yet on the test blog I don’t see my trackback showing up.
    > Yes; when I first gave WordPress a whirl, I tried and did get a trackback from the test to me. But, I never tried the “me to them” direction. But when I noticed that none of my trackbacks were showing up anywhere else, I started looking into it.

    Thanks very much for your response and help.


    > I just tried creating and publishing two new posts with trackbacks to two different blogs. Neither made it to the other blogs.

    > I tried and did receive trackbacks to my blog from others without issue.

    In that case I would suspect your host has a setting which is stopping this. Can you ask them ?

    I’m having the same trouble. Nothing’s changed for me except that I’ve upgraded to version 2… Would upgrading to 2.01 help?

    We really do appreciate your help!

    Thanks for the response.

    I have forwarded the WordPress Server Reqs to my provider. Is there any other information you suggest I forward or things I should ask them to look at?

    Here is what my hosting provider said. Any suggestions on things I should have them look at?


    Good Evening,

    I looked at the version of php (4.3.10-3.2) and mysql (3.23.58-4) on your server and it meets the requirement. I also verified that mod_rewrite is turned on. I want to clarify what exactly you cannot do? I can ping from your server. Is there a link that you can send that we can test with? Keep in mind that WordPress is not likely support in the service contract. If we need to trouble shoot WordPress, it would be consider special work order at billable rate of $90 an hour. ping PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=245 time=159 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=245 time=5.19 ms

    Hello everyone; I’m tickling this again to see if anybody can give me any feedback on what I should have my server people look at.

    I’d done a lot of searching on the web and in here, and see lots of comments that 2.0 had trackback problems, but, then all the conversations seem to die off. In addition to feedback, does anyone know if the trackback bugs in 2.0 were fixed in 2.0.1?

    Absolutely the same problem. I use 2.0. will switching to 2.0.1 solve the problem – I don’t know, but I wish to know!

    to support team: PLEASE! Help us guys!
