Daily Prompt pingback fail

    I’m not sure why this is happening, but, once again, my link doesn’t show up on the Daily Prompt page.

    Am I doing something wrong? It used to work all the time.

    I’m trying to link this post: https://poemsbysally.wordpress.com/2016/11/06/hot-dogs-and-apple-relish/
    with the “Relish” prompt.

    The blog I need help with is poemsbysally.wordpress.com.

    AND it happened again this morning.

    I will describe this problem as IRKSOME

    The post I need help with is https://poemsbysally.wordpress.com/2016/11/07/irksome-pingbacks/



    Been happening to lots of bloggers including myself for the past week. Support has commented on other threads they have been working on the problem and thought it was fixed. It is very ‘irksome’.


    It seems like if I comment on the problem here, my pingback will eventually show up on the The Daily Prompt page which is why I keep doing it.

    This morning I tried going through my Reader and clicking on “Write a post about Irksome” where WP automatically puts the link in. I prefer adding the link to the word within the post. Neither way works.



    Hi there,

    We have been having issues with the daily prompt pingbacks and our developers are looking into the source of the issue. I will keep you informed with any updates I hear regarding a fix. Thanks!


    It happened again today. No pingback. Daily Prompt: Lofty.


    There aren’t any responses displaying for Lofty yet. I’ll take a look and see if there is an issue going on with all prompts. Thanks!
