Pingbacks have not been working on my blog since 8th April 2106. I’ve read a few posts from other bloggers experiencing the same problem.
I contacted WordPress today as I thought it rather strange that they were still not working. I thought the problem was affecting all WordPress sites, but it seems not. They’ve now added my blog to a list of other blogs experiencing the same problem.
They have staff looking into the problem. In the meantime, if you are participating in one of my weekly photo challenges then I recommend that you copy and paste the link to your post in the comments section of my post. I’m also not being notified of any links or Pingbacks other bloggers may be making to any of my posts.
Given that WordPress were not aware that my blog was affected by this problem, I would recommend that if you are experiencing the same problem with Pingbacks that you report it to WordPress so that they can add your blog to the ever growing list.
You can contact WordPress by clicking on the ‘help’ button on your blog. To get to it click on the photo/logo/icon of your blog, located in the top right-hand corner next to the notification button and you’ll see the help button at the bottom of the menu on the left-hand side of the page that opens. Once the page has opened report the Pingback problem to them. They will want some examples from you so I would recommend you have some links to affected posts ready to send to them.
