This isn't a new issue.
But in the interest of condensing the troubleshooting already done here's the issue.
I am running a WP 2.1 blog.
It has a custom theme.
I have enabled the following options:
- Attempt to notify any Weblogs linked to from the article (slows down posting.)
- Allow link notifications from other Weblogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.)
- Allow people to post comments on the article
- Comment author must fill out name and e-mail
I am using the following plugins.
Bad Behavior 2.0.9
In my theme I have added the following code to the single post page:
<!--<?php trackback_rdf(); ?> -->
and I have added the meta tag
<link rel="pingback" href="http://mydomain.com/xmlrpc.php" />
In my header I have also included the following code:
<?php wp_head(); ?>
My site SENDS OUT Trackbacks and Pingbanks Just fine.
However it's not GETTING ANY.
I can get the incoming Trackbacks and Pingbanks to work if I disable ALL the plugins and also Undo the "Comment author must fill out name and e-mail" option.
If I turn on Akismet everything still works - but I must still Undo the "Comment author must fill out name and e-mail" option.
Incoming Trackbacks and Pingbanks fail if anything besides Akismet is enabled.
And if the name/email required option is chosen.
(Akisment does not have to be on for other plugins to get in the way of Trackbacks and Pingbanks Bad Behavior messes it up all on it's own. Even when name/email is NOT required.
Obviously this is less than ideal.
I know of sites that require name and email, and use Akismet and Bad Behavior. They get Trackbacks and Pingbanks Just fine.
I am at a loss here.
Anybody that requires email and name that can get trackbacks ... I'd love to hear your thoughts.
If you use any combination of Akismet,Bad Behavior, and CaptCha! and can get trackbacks ... I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Anybody with any insight at all...I'd love to hear your thoughts.
