Hi, when I put the trackback url in my post and publish, it shows that the trackback has ‘pinged’ but when I go to the blog I trackback to, its not showing. It’s happening both with typepad and haloscan.
I had a trackback problem before and it went away for a while but its back.
I rely heavily on sucking other blogs’ traffic and trackbacks are a key tool in that game.
I’m sure I’ll get shouted down for this, but in my experience trackback in wordpress has always been a bit flaky. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Either way, it’s handled by the admin side so it shouldn’t be affected by themes.
Im going to ask the other sites if my trackback is caught in comments moderation.
In fact, last time I had this issue, one of the wordpress administrators directed me to a trackback testing facility, and even there we had to be concerned about our trackback getting stuck in comments moderation.
Trackbacks is an area where the blogging world could really improve.
