Hi, I've read through various forum and support posts on this and I'm just getting more confused, so hoping I can ask some questions here.
1. If I link to one of my own posts, should that automatically turn up as a pingback in the comments section of the post that is linked to? Or do I have to do something specific to make that happen?
2. In my Settings I had "Attempt to notify any blogs linked to from the article (slows down posting.)" disabled. I've now enabled this. Was this stopping self links as in Q1? Will enabling it work on old posts?
3. Is it true that I never have to do anything to pingback to other WordPress blogs (assuming they have enabled it at their end), or does it depend if they are .com or .org wordpress?
4. For non-Wordpress blogs, can I trackback/pingback if the blog as no trackback/pingback URL on the post page? How?
5. What is a 'legacy blog'?
I probably have some other questions but will wait 'til I've sorted the first lot.
The blog I need help with is wildcrafty.wordpress.com.
