Support » Themes and Templates » trackback_rdf() not working

  • Hello all!

    Inside my theme-templates (index.php and single.php), withing the loop, I’m using this tag to display the trackback-rdf:

    <?php trackback_rdf(); ?>

    It seems, that the function trackback_rdf() does not produce any output. When I view my blog’s HTML-source with my browser (firefox), the line where the rdf should appear is empty:


    Trackbacks and pingbacks are enabled on my site. I’m using WP 2.2.

    I have no idea, why the rdf doesn’t show up in my html-source. Who can help me 🙂 ?

  • I have the same problem (with wordpress 2.2 on this site), did you or someone else find a solution?

    The trackback_rdf() produced no output in every theme I tried.


    It is probably working just fine. It isn’t supposed to return any information to readers, just to blogs etc….

    Read this article here

    To have your trackbacks show up on your posts use this (remove spaces)

    < ?php trackback_url(); ? >

    I know the difference between trackback_url() and trackback_rdf(). The latter is not supposed to produce any visible output.

    It is supposed to produce output like the one shown in the article you mentioned. This rdf-snipped should be visible in the page’s html-sourcecode. You can see the sourcecode on firefox, when you are watching a blog-post and then press STRG+U.

    The problem I have is that since WP 2.2 the trackback-rdf does not show up in the source anymore. In older versions, it did show up in the source.
