Trackbacks and pingbacks not working (4 posts)

    I just got Scobleized and wanted to see if my trackbacks and pingbacks were working and looks like they're not. I used these 2 online tools to test below and got these error messages. my blogs url is http://www.adultaddstrengths.com

    Any suggestions?

    I notice on some websites they have a trackback category in each post but it's not no mine. I'm using wordpress 1.5 and would like to wait until the bugs are shaken out of 1.5.2 before upgrading.

    thanks

    if you want to see if your site can receive trackbacks, try this tool.

    http://redalt.com/External/trackback.php

    and put in my site URL http://www.adultaddstrengths.com

    and got this error message

    Trackback sent to specified page.
    Response:
    Bad Request

    Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.

    Invalid URI in request POST HTTP/1.0

    Apache/1.3.31 Server at AppStuff Port 80

    then I tried to see if I can receive pingpacks and tried this tool

    http://redalt.com/External/pingback.php

    and got this error message from the same url

    Trackback sent to specified page.
    Response:

    Error.
    Fault code: 33 : The specified target URI cannot be used as a target. It either doesn't exist, or it is not a pingback-enabled resource.

    any ideas how to fix it? I notice on some websites they have a trackback category in each post but it's not no mine. I'm using wordpress 1.5 and would like to wait until the bugs are shaken out of 1.5.2 before upgrading.

    Given the work involved between tracking down the possible problem or upgrading, I would upgrade. If it is a fault in the version you have, then no matter what you do it will not go away and every time you post, someone (like I'm doing) will suggest upgrading.

    1.5.1.2 looks very stable.

    Thanks Podz,

    a little reluctant to upgrade since i know very little php and for beginners like me if changing one simple thing can take up a hell of a lot of time, or can't be done, backing up, upgrading and reimporting posts seems like a massive amount of time.

    So have to find a large chunk of time and then take the plunge

    Don't bother upgrading (just fot this, I mean :). I have exactly the same problem with trackbacks and pingbacks, and I am using the latest WP version (1.5.1.3.).
