Support » Fixing WordPress » Trackbacks and Pings not working!

  • I have searched and could not find an answer for WP 1.5.

    I tried Red Alt to see if my blog can ping and it gives me this message:
    Blog URL “http://www.indiblog.com” was last updated at Mon, 03 Oct 2005 19:49:25 -0400
    RedAlt has no record of pingbacks or trackbacks from sites beginning with the submitted string.

    Whereas, I have updated the blog regularly and even yesterday!

    Also, trackbacks are not being sent. When I trackback another blog post, it is not pinging that blog. but it is not their problem because I can see that they have received other trackbacks. Please tell me how this can be solved.

    On the other hand, I can successfully receive trackbacks as I tested from Red Alt.

  • Just about every thread I read on searching for you said, “Upgrade to 1.5.2”

    Was anything at all changed on your blog on 3 October ?
    Theme ? Core code ?
    That’s the date I’d be looking back to.

    Thanks podz for replying…but I don’t know! I’ve been changing the theme for quite sometime and have settled only over the last 2 weeks – but can editing the theme affect how new posts send trackbacks to other blogs/sites?

    And I have never messed with the core code. Shall I try re-uploading all the WP core files except the theme files (because the theme is quite edited)?

    Could it be something with my server not sending anything externally? Since I can’t send both trackbacks and pings?

    I forgot to mention that internal trackbacks are working!

    Could this mean that the problem lies with my server? Need any permissions be set on the server to send trackbacks and pings to external sites?

    Does nobody know what could be wrong?

    You all know how important it is for sending trackbacks and pings to work!

    Help please…

    Not sure what’s wrong, but I have a new site and can’t get pings or trackbacks to work, either… except they never worked for me.

    “RedAlt has no record of pingbacks or trackbacks from sites beginning with the submitted string.”

    With the site submitted correctly. Running latest version, anybody have any clues?

    I have similar problems with RedAlt

    “RedAlt has no record of pingbacks or trackbacks from sites beginning with the submitted string.” and this as well

    “Blog URL “” was last updated at Wed, 31 Dec 1969 18:59:59 -0500″

    This is the same for every blog I entered. I don’t think the service has been working for a few weeks now.
