    Thank you...I hope someone helps. It was working last week.


  4. Staff will help you as soon as they work their way forward to this thread.

  5. Hi there,

    There have been a few reports of this issue.

    Can you share a few examples of posts that should have pingbacks, but never got them?

    We'll definitely look into this for you.

    The Prompts Breakthrough and Disagree. Both of those did not go through. The Prompt Graceful went through after 12 hours. These were prompts on the Daily Post by Ben Huberman.

    Thank you for looking into this.


  7. Thank you!

    I'll report this internally and see if we can get this fixed for you. Thanks again!

    It's still not fixed. Could it be that I'm being blocked off the site?

  9. Hi there,

    Our developers are still working on fixing the issue. There is still quite a bit of testing that is being done. Apologize for the inconvenience, but I will keep you updated once I hear any updates.


  10. I will try again today. Is someone at WP trying to block my pings?

  11. Is someone at WP trying to block my pings?

    No. There is a long standing issue with pingbacks on site.

  12. As @Timethief mentioned, no one is blocking your pings - it is an issue with the Daily Post that is affected many users and we're we're in the process of trying to fix it.


  13. Hi there everyone,

    I was just told that the pingback issues have been fixed. Please let me know if you all have any questions.


  14. downcastmysoul

    My pingbacks are still not going through.

  15. Hmm..are you referring to pingbacks you just tried again or the ones that you have reported?

  16. downcastmysoul

    They are STILL not going through. I tried to post to the Daily Post today, Nov. 8.

  17. Hi there,

    I checked and also do not see the post in Daily Posts. I reached out to our team internally and they told me that your issue isn't related to the glitch that we were able to fix a few days ago. We're still looking into this, but let me know if you make another post - I'd be interested in seeing if anything changes.

    We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks!

  18. downcastmysoul

    Like I said, I've been banned from the Daily Post it appears.

  19. I am talking to our team internally to see if we can find the source of the issue. We will definitely keep you updated.

  20. downcastmysoul

    It's the 22nd of Nov. This thread started on Oct 5? Should I look for another blog platform?

  21. I see for the November 8th post you posted this:

    <a href="">Daily Prompt: Second Thoughts</a>

    and the official link given out was this: <a href="">Second Thoughts</a>

    That may be the reason your post didn't show up. You can find the exact link you need to post under the show instructions hyperlink.

    Update the link to the second one I provided and see if it shows. Thanks!

  22. downcastmysoul

    It didn't word and just linked back to my own blog.

  23. Did you change the link back? I checked the post and it was still in the old format. I also checked all of the other posts and they are all in that same format.


  24. downcastmysoul

    Looks like I popped up this time by going to the main Web page for daily prompts. First time in over a month. My 300th post as well. Finally.

  25. Glad that everything is now working!
