Pings and Trackbacks are back!
You may remember a while back I wrote about my broken trackbacks and my attempts to fix them. I noticed last month or so that a trackback had appeared on my AIS Blog but didn’t want to mention it in case it was a one off. However I’ve seen a few more appearing so now feel safe to say they’re back!
What’s different? I honestly don’t know! They appeared on a version of WordPress 2.3.2 (I think, or 2.3.3) and have been working since. I can only assume that perhaps it was an issue with one of the core WordPress files, however I presumed it was my own fault as other sites running the same WP version seemed to receive trackbacks without a problem. However, that’s not an issue any more as my trackbacks are back. Most are getting caught in Akismet but I check this a few times a week so can dig any out before emptying the spam.
It’s nice to have some trackbacks, and luckily the theme I’m running already separates them, saves me the time of implementing Gary’s method.
