‘Tis a joyful day narrowing down and fixing bugs in seismic and blogging software. Isn’t it frightful how lots of things fall apart around the holidays? Since upgrading to WordPress 2.0.x, my blog hasn’t been sending and receiving trackbacks and pingbacks (These are not the same beast. Hooray for semantics.). Obviously, this blows chunks as you don’t know if I’ve linked to your articles and I have no clue who’s linking to mine, unless I see it on Technorati (when the stars are aligned and their aggregator chooses to work). So much for community blogging.
TestTrack and the WP 2.0.1> trackback/pingback threads on the support forum help only a little; for the most part, they let me know that I’m not the only one with the problem. Gah! Anyone out there with similar issues?
Also: HAVE YOU RUN A BACKUP OF YOUR BLOG LATELY? IF NOT, DO SO NOW.
Update 1: Poldo ran into the same trackback/pingback problems and reportedly got rid of them using Paul Ooi’s script changes. It’s been 20 minutes since I uploaded the fixes to my server and I’m waiting to see if it “takes.” On the work-related bug front, my problem has been escalated to the developers. Ho hum.
Update 2: If it weren’t for the darned security concerns, I would SOOOOO go back to WordPress 1.5
