    Just wondering if there’s anything I should be doing differently to have my posts show up on the daily prompt? I’ve got pingbacks allowed, and I post with the link directly embedded in the post. ? I’ve written a few that haven’t appeared on the response page. Thanks!

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

    Hi there,

    It looks like you were using a different link from the one specified on the actual prompt post.

    In your Diary post, for example, you used https://dailypost.wordpress.com/2017/03/13/record/, but the instructions on the Daily Post prompt says to use https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/record/

    I’ve fixed those links on your Diary and Snowflake posts, and they’re both now appearing on the prompt posts as well.

    Interesting to note! Thanks! The link I used came directly from the Daily Prompt page. Could that be happening to others as well?

    Thank you!

    It’s possible, though if I view the post on the Daily Post it shows the URL I gave above in my browser, and also if I click the Instructions link for the pingback. I don’t see the URL you used displayed anywhere on the page.

    In fact, I don’t see that URL containing the date showing anywhere on the Daily Post site. Can you please tell me exactly where you copied that? I have a feeling that URL should not be visible at all.

    Yup, I got to it from my “likes” page. One of the posts on the page is the daily prompt, and a button to “post about [whatever the word is]”.

    https://wordpress.com/activities/likes

    That’s the link that comes up.

    Take care
    Kathy

    Thank you for that information. I’ve reported it to the Daily Post team so they can have a look.

    Going forward, I’d recommend you visit the prompt directly on The Daily Post, and copy the link from there.
