  • Ever since I upgraded from 1.5 > 2.0 > 2.0.1 > 2.0.2 pingbacks and trackbacks have stopped working. I have no idea what to do about this. Am I the only one with this problem in version 2.0.2?

    Has your host done anything?

    When you upgraded did you do it all at once and overwrite files?

    Thanks for the quick reply 🙂
    I did everything according to the upgrading instructions. I did not overwrite any files. The problem started when I went from 1.5 > 2.0. Upgrading to 2.0.1 and then to 2.0.2 did not help.

    I also have updated to the most recent version of Spam Karma

    2 did have a problem but that was cured in 2.0.1
    As far as I know 2.0.2 had no changes that would affect this (I could be wrong on that) but like I said we’ve had few posts.

    Where / how have you tried? Are you sure that you are not being blocked? You can test pings and tbacks to and from this blog if you want:
    Be sure to log back in and check that nothing has been caught for moderation.

    It seems as trackbacks are working but not pingbacks. Or maybe they just take a while before they are sent? Nothing has been caught by Spam Karma though.

    One step forward anyway.

    After reading this post I tested my blog, and pingbacks and trackbacks are not working for me either.

    Well, I just received a pingback from the test site, but it took a little while. However, any trackbacks or pingbacks I have sent to the site are not showing up. And I haven’t received any trackbacks from the site. And no, I’m not doing them at the same time.

    I have tried sending trackbacks 2 both MichChick and None of the shows up as far as I can see. The trackback sent 2 shows up though.

    I seem to be getting sporadic pingbacks, but have not yet received any trackbacks. And it looks like I’m not SENDING any trackbacks or pingbacks.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? I haven’t had this issue before and probably wouldn’t have realized it if it weren’t for this thread.

    I just wanted to add that this is a brand new installation of the latest version (downloaded it yesterday).

    I trackbacked to your post. I have to assume it was sent because I tested one to my site and it worked.
    Looks like the problem could be your host?

    Scrub the above. Somethign weird is going on.

    I am sending TRACKbacks to my own blog but they are coming in as PINGbacks… and I don’t know why.

    From what I can test:
    Sending a trackback where the post URL – even if not clickable – sends a ping.

    Sending a trackback where the post url is not in the post at all works.

    I think.

    I think we all can agree on that there is something wrong with both sending and recieving track- and pingbacks.

    Well, at least I’m glad it’s not just me doing something bone-headed. 🙂

    when i refer to my own previous post with a link, i find that i will have a brand new comment to that particular post.

    Just imagine a blog that hardly gets much traffic, with no feedback most of the time, then suddenly you get one, only to learn that its your own pingback. Arrgggh!

    Is there anything that can be done?
