Trackback and Pingback not doing anything…
Forgive the ignorance I am about to show here.
Ok…so I have built a blog on WordPress.
I believe it’s 2.0.1
I have enabled the following options:
Attempt to notify any Weblogs linked to from the article (slows down posting.)
Allow link notifications from other Weblogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.)
Allow people to post comments on the article
I can see “incoming links” on the dashboard … but nothing shows up in the comments as trackbacks.
Here are the factors that may be complicating things.
1) Link format.
The support thread I read that was a similar issue had to do with the format of the trackback link.
While this may be an issue… shouldn’t the pingback functionality STILL work?
I have tried both methods with no luck.
But for the sake of compete disclosure…
When I place the trackback URL into a browser window I get:
The document has moved here.
To be honest I’m not sure if that’s supposed to happen or not.
I EXPECTED to end up at the permalink page.
So that may be an issue…
But even if it is why would the pingbacks not be working?
2) I have anti comment spam plugins running.
Specifically Bad Behavior & Captcha!
Not sure if those affect the pinkback / trackback functions – but there’s nothing showing up as needing to be moderated or anything.
3) I am using a custom theme.
It’s also completely feasible that I am missing something in the templates I have created.
I have added the following code to the single post page:
<!–<?php trackback_rdf(); ?> –>
and I have added the meta tag
<link rel=”pingback” href=”http://mydomain.com/xmlrpc.php” />
In my header I have also included the following code:
<?php wp_head(); ?>
Is there anything else I should be doing?
