    My pingbacks show up in comments in the dashboard but don’t show up under blog post even though they’re enable both under settings and post. I have a number of plugins related to comments and tweaked the code. I’m a relative newbie so it’s disheartening to see no fix in the forum.http://fairfieldgreenfoodguide.com

    Leisegang can you list your plug-ins for us? If your pings work AFTER disabling all your plug-ins then that says one of those plug-ins has something to do with this. Many people are having trouble with pings right now. You might have part of the answer if we can identify which plug-in might be messing with this.

    I don’t see how that’s possible. My plugin doesn’t screw with that kinda stuff.

    Plus it works fine for me on my blogs.

    Same here. I wondered why pingbacks and trackbacks won’t work. After reading 11Mytics’ hint, I disabled vipers video quicktags and pingbacks working properly again.

    I don’t know how this plugin is affecting the ping-functoonality, but there must be a relation. Testet on two diffrent blog.

    Any errors in your error log or anything? I can’t debug this as I am unable to reproduce the issue.

    I can confirm that my blog (2.8) won’t sent pingbacks, if the Plugin “Video Quicktags” is active…

    I have test it several times

    I found the problem to be a missing code line (2.8.3).

    Apparently, in comments.php (Dashboard -> Appearance -> Editor -> comments.php) there is the following check line:

    <?php if ( !empty($comments_by_type['pings']) ) : ?>

    Testing it, I found that the $comments_by_type variable is NOT SET, hence the IF check will fail and trackbacks and pingbacks won’t show.

    To fix this, just add the following line BEFORE the line above:

    <?php $comments_by_type = &separate_comments($comments); ?>

    This simply sets the $comments_by_type variable with the necessary info for the loop to take on pings and trackbacks.

    ———————————————————-
    Basically it should look like this:

    <?php $comments_by_type = &separate_comments($comments); ?>
    <?php if ( !empty($comments_by_type['pings']) ) :  ?>

    instead of

    <?php if ( !empty($comments_by_type['pings']) ) : ?>

    Let me know if this has helped you guys out with your versions.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Mike but I don’t have that line in my comments.php code (I use 2.7)

    @blogtemporar,

    I have 2.8.4(2.8.3 security problems), and in comments.php i can’t find such line.
    Also have Atahualpa theme 3.4.1.

    seems that many people have this problem with trackback and pingback.
    Where is a moderator, when we need one!

    This issue was fixed a few months back in my plugin. You shouldn’t need to make any file modifications.

    Ok I don’t have those lines in my comments.php

    I still want to beable to test my pingback and tracebacks.

    Does anyone know a site that I can test this on.

    also I don’t get the trackback URL thingy at the bottom of my posts 🙁

    Please could someone help me

    @mike,
    Your solution worked perfectly. Thanks!

    Rob
