Support » Fixing WordPress » showing trackbacks on pages

  • Hi there,

    I’m wondering on how to show a list of trackbacks to my pages.

    I’m an avid php coder as i made several plugins on several systems but i cannot find the hooks/functions to show trackbacks on pages.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Not completely sure I follow. Sending and receiving trackbacks is builtin.

    what im trying to do is this:

    i create a page. type my stuff in it.
    then someone writes about that pages on some website. placing a link to it on his/her page/post. a trackback is generated.

    i receive that trackback. and then it just sits there in the database. i want to show a list of trackbacks on that page (or all pages) i’ve created.

    i can just add the comment template but i dont want comments. ive got articles and a guestbook for that. so i need/want to show trackbacks only.

    That actually helps alot yes.


    ive been playing with this issue some more in the last few days and i found that its rather tricky to show pingbacks on a page. or am i doing something wrong?

    for the comments on articles i use:
    <ol class="commentlist">
    <h3 id="trackbacks">Trackbacks/Pings</h3>
    <?php foreach($comments as $comment) { ?>
    <?php if(get_comment_type() != "comment") { ?>
    <li class="<?php echo $oddcomment; ?> smaller" id="comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>">
    <cite><?php comment_author_link() ?></cite>

    <?php /* Changes every other comment to a different class */
    if ('alt' == $oddcomment) {
    $oddcomment = '';
    } else {
    $oddcomment = 'alt';

    Which works quite nice. But when i use this exact piece of code on a page template it wont show up.

    At first i thought i was wrong and there is no pingback, but when i look in the database there really is one. linking to that page.

    i tried leaving out <?php if(get_comment_type() != "comment") { ?>

    or changing it: <?php if(get_comment_type() == "pingback") { ?>

    But it didnt work.
    Anyone got an idea?
