I'm going to go out on a limb here and say they are pretty useless, in fact I would say they are even a nuisance. The idea was novel when it first came out and it was for a brief moment useful, but those days are over. I never enable pingbacks because they seem to actually discourage discussion, and are highly abused by SEO spam. Trackbacks might be ...

Changing the global Trackbacks setting via Dashboard -> Settings -> Discussion will only change the default behavior. If you currently have existing posts/pages with trackbacks enabled, changing the default setting will not change the per-post setting. You will need to go to Dashboard -> Posts, select all posts, and batch-edit them to disable ...

For numbering, in your comment.php, change this: wp_list_comments('callback=mytheme_comment'); To this: wp_list_comments(array( 'callback'=>'mytheme_comment', 'style'=>'ol', )); For separation into comments and pingbacks, you'd do something like this: wp_list_comments(array( 'callback'=>'mytheme_comment', 'style'=>'ol', ...

The first you do: separate regular comments and pingbacks. In your comments.php set the type parameter for both: <ol class="commentlist"> <?php // show regular comments wp_list_comments( array ( 'type' => 'comment', 'style' => 'ul' ) ); ?></ol> <ol class="pinglist"> <?php // show pingbacks and ...

It's "Pingback" What is Pingback? Pingbacks (also known as trackbacks) are a form of automated comment for a page or post, created when another WordPress blog links to that page or post. When you publish a new blog post, WordPress attempts to ‘ping‘ all the sites that were linked to in your post. i.e. Your WordPress website is informing other websites ...

This code was tested in a local testing Multisite. Seems ok, but found a minor glitch: - after running it all drafts/pending posts disappear from the listing page, but appear again after a refresh, no idea why... Although I believe it's pretty harmless, please backup your database before running this /* * Turn off trackback/pingbacks and comments on all ...

It depends how you link the sites. Wordpress is very particular. If you link it with http://... at the beginning, then Wordpress will generate a pingback. If you do a relative link, then Wordpress will nto generate a pingback. Whether this applies to subdomains as much as to cross-domains, I can't say. But, try linking them with full liks (http://...) to ...

Since you're listing pings separately from comments, you probably need to filter get_comments_number to exclude pings. Here's how I do it: <?php function oenology_comment_count( $count ) { // Only filter the comments number // in the front-end display if ( // WordPress conditional that returns true if // the current page is in the WP-Admin back-end ! ...

Q: Are pingbacks sent immediately when a post is published, or are they scheduled as a cron job? If the later is correct, how often does the job run and can I trigger it manually? A: You can install core control (wordpress plugin) to find out more. Q: Are there any other terms for PBs to be sent besides having "Attempt to notify any blogs linked to from ...

By default WordPress does not display an avatar for a pingback or a trackback - do they even contain an e-mail address? You can add these to the get_avatar_comment_types filter if you want to change this.

you may use this plugin : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/disabler/ i found this function somewhere on the internet (but can't remember where...). it may do what you are looking for : // Remove self pings add_action( 'pre_ping', 'my_no_self_ping' ); function my_no_self_ping( &$links ) { $home = get_option( 'home' ); foreach ( $links as $l ...

Technically, you could, but it wouldn't make sense to do this. A ping isn't a comment. Nobody wrote on your blog. It's simply notification from a ping-enabled site that shows that site linked to your post. The site that included your link might be a scrapper site, a spammer, or someone who legitimately refers to your post. Either way, they would never see ...
