Support » Fixing WordPress » Trackbacks not working

  • Just got a message from a reader…
    He’d tried to send a trackback to a post on my blog, but got an error. I then tried to trackback my own blog with the utility at and I got an unspecified error.
    The comments are working fine.
    Any ideas? Totally at a loss here….

    What version are you using?

    Oops, sorry — using 1.2.1

    This is a known bug.

    Hmmm… I uploaded the supplied files to the appropriate folders, and still get an unrecognized error with the Kalsey utility.
    Do I need to do something else besides upload the files with the corrected lines?

    Got the recommended xmlrpc.php file, and still, no trackbacks allowed.

    Thanks Kafka!!!

    Stupid question, but if this was a known bug in August, why hasn’t a fix been incorporated?
    Second stupid question. I just started having this problem across four different installs. Has anyone run across a problem with a recent Apache, PHP, mySQL or linux kernel update that could be causing problems in addition to the existing issues?

    Stupid answer to my own stupid question. It must not be a problem with any of the above. I fixe the question mark in functions.php and it started working. The only thing I can figure is that my abortive attempt at using custom permalinks broke something that didn’t fix itself when I went back to standard. Biiizzzzaaaarrreee.
    I still love the product, btw, and you can’t beat the price.

    Stupid answer: Probably because no one has a good fix that will work for all WP blogs. Since, first of all, no one knows why only certain blogs are affected.
