Creating a Trackback from WordPress to a Typepad post
If you pinged the typepad trackback URL and linked the article in the wordpress blog post without it showing up it could be a couple of things that come to mind:
1) You don’t have the option to ping other blogs set in your Admin => Settings => Discussion – “Attempt to notify any blogs linked to from the article (slows down posting.) “
2) It is a problem with accepting pingbacks and trackbacks on your typepad blog. Maybe check the settings on that end.
See if it is one of those 2 things.
As in WordPress, if the TypePad owner has comment/trackback moderation on, trackbacks will not appear automatically. If that is the case, then the TypePad blogger must approve your ping, and maybe he just didn’t want to do that? Besides, your ping could have been caught flagged as Spam in Typepad, and the TypePad blogger might not have seen it.
Posts here at WP.com which are set to post at a later time often have problems with trackbacks, etc. If that applies to your WP.com post, just edit it and the trackback should show up, barring other additional issues as discussed above.
Thanks for all the prompt responses. I have checked my Discussion setting as suggested by Trent and it is set to notify any blogs. I guess the other blog might not have approved the trackback. Consider this closed thanks
