I use Zemanta to list related posts in my blog creating a pingback. Since they are my own posts, they show up under my recent comments. I do not wish to have my own posts show up as pingbacks in my recent comments on my side board. Is there a way to prevent that?
I looked in support and found this:
Normally when you create a link, the entire URL including http:// is used. That will cause a self ping.
To prevent self-pings, shorten the URL from this:
Note: The visual editor may add the domain information back into the link. To check that, you must switch to the HTML editor and make sure the link is displayed correctly in the href attribute for the link before publishing.
Unfortunately, I could not get it to work. When I used that format, the page would not open. Also, I was hoping there might be a way to turn off pingbacks for my own posts as doing it the way suggested would be extremely time consuming.
The blog I need help with is fruitoftheword.com.
