Track/Ping Testing

Published 18 years, 10 months past

So a while back, Gatekeeper was discovered to silently kill off trackbacks and pingbacks without any notification, something I’d have realized if I had stepped back for a second to think about my coding.  So anyway, a solution was proposed, and I thought it fixed the problem.  Only it didn’t, possibly due to me being sloppy.  I’m honestly not sure.

So anyway, I think this time I’ve really fixed the problem, but to find out, I need to have people trackback and pingback this post.  That’s all; just hit this post with one or the other—or, heck, both. Feel free to make the link back to your site to your home page, your favorite post, your most recent post, your about page… whatever.  Thanks.

Oh, and if your attempt to *back the post fails, leave a comment to let me know.  If you see more than a few comments saying it didn’t work without a response from me, then don’t worry about adding another unless you have information that would explain why the failures are occurring.  Thanks again!

    Tracking Back

    Hey, why not throw my own test into the ring? Besides, I adore the idea of trackbacking the post from the post…

  2. I tried pinging with an arbitrary source and got the following reply: “The source URI does not contain a link to the target URI, and so cannot be used as a source.”

    I’m assuming that’s a good sign.

  6. Though my ping from an arbitrary URL that doesn’t link to you worked just fine (as it should, see the permathread spread through a couple dozen peoples comments about how Trackback’s semantics don’t imply reciprocal linking).

    Eric has the machine that goes “Ping!”

    Bet this won’t work through my hackish trackback-sending app.

    The Americans can help reduce global warming

    Gerv make a good point (as usual) about the need for America to join the rest of the world in doing something about global warming. However I noticed these figures in today’s Independent.

  14. While we’re on the subject of bugs and fixes… the archives function doesn’t currently work past the first page (Click “Archives”, scroll the the bottom of the page, click “Previous Entries” – broken). Didn’t know if you were aware of it or not.

    Testing Eric Meyer’s blog trackback

    I’m testing Eric Meyer’s trackback function in WordPress from a Drupal-based blog.

  22. I am a frequent visitor to your site On Friday I got the following message when I visited ‘Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL which is required for WordPress.’.

    If your site is really interrogating my system (which I doubt), you may be interested that I have the following
    Win XP Pro SP2
    Apache Server 2.0.54 (not running)
    PHP 4.3.4 (not running)
    MySQL Server 4.0.15-nt (running as a Service)
    I dont have wordpress
