WordPress 2.8.5: Hardening Release Upgrade Broke Pinged Trackback Status

This blog was upgraded to WordPress 2.8.5 two days ago. As with every upgrade, there is this fear of something not working afterwards. Indeed, something broke! The trackback links to Project Petaling Street that were pinged were not moved to the “Already pinged” section below the trackback input box after the upgrade. The link stays in the trackback input box. I hope this issue will be resolved in WordPress 2.9. Other than that, everything else seems to be working just fine.

  1. Hi, thanks for info. I upgraded too and noticed the ping to pps don’t work too. I had a redirection problem with another site but not sure it has anything to do with 8.5.

    Like your digitals tips but yet to read more..Cheers!

    You are welcome. If it is a small matter, I usually do not bother with it. Otherwise, I just downgrade to the previous version.
