Support » Fixing WordPress » trackbacks in 2.0.3

  • Sorry for another for another thread about trackback problems.

    I just upgraded to 2.0.3 and I cannot send or receive trackbacks or pingbacks. When I originally installed 2.0.2 a few weeks ago, I know trackbacks worked (I never really tested pingbacks). Since then, after modifying the site, installing a bunch of plugins and then updating to 2.0.3, trackbacks and pingbacks don’t work.

    I have tried using the trackback test site at:

    And I’ve had no luck there. I’ve also set up a temporary account and had that successfully trackback the test site and vice versa. So, I know I’m not doing it wrong. I’m not sending both a pingback and trackback in one post.

    I have tested this with “Attempt to notify any Weblogs linked to from the article” both enabled and disabled. And of course, I have “Allow link notifications from other Weblogs” enabled.

    I am hosted with and at this point I don’t know if it’s an issue with hosting or not. I have tried both self-trackbacks and self-pingbacks and neither worked.

    Lastly, here is the URL of the site on which I am trying to get this to work:

    I’m at a loss with what to do next. I would genuinely love to be able to use this feature of wordpress so any help would be much appreciated. Please let me know if I can provide any more information to be able to help fix this problem.

  • Update: I just tried the trick of manually going to /wp-admin/execute-pings.php and it successfully sent a ping. Unfortunately, I don’t know where to progress from there.

    I also tried modifying execute-pings.php to have trackbacks sent out before pings, but that had no effect.

    Anything else I can try?

    For me, Technorati ignores my pings.

    Same problem here, same version, same troubleshooting thus far..
