I’ve been trying to fix my blog’s ability to receive and show pingbacks and trackbacks today. I’ve clean up the options table in the database, removed any tables from deactivated plugins, removed fields from deactivated plugins. However I cannot seem to work out why my trackbacks don’t work!
They’re set to be received in my options and I’ve double checked this in the database table. The pingback URL is referenced in every page’s HTML header source. When I upgrade WordPress I completely delete the old files and upload the new ones. I even wondered if it was because I change the comments script file to prevent so much spam, but I know others who have done this and still don’t have a problem.
So why won’t they work for me? 🙁
Maybe I’ll just have to reinstall WordPress and import my database in to that. But that’s the last resort right now.
