Fixed WordPress 2.0 Trackback Issue
Wah ! this is my first post to ping pps, after i upgrade to wordpress2.0 few day ago ..
I been having problem to trackback after i upgrade to wordpress 2 RC3, even the final version release can’t fix the problem
- if you upgrade your db from 1.5.2 to 2.0
- unable to trackback, no matter what you publish the trackback url remain at the trackback field
if your situation match the above point, here are the solution that i want to share with you after i dig table by table, code by code , field by field
this problem is because of to_ping field contain some char ( including space, tab which represent by \n\r ), run this sql command under your phpmyadmin Update ‘wp-posts’ set to_ping=”
after this should be able to trackback already, i believe the wordpress dev team change hows the original trackback work, thats explain why there are no problem during 1.5.2 but cause some problem in 2.0, i think they should include this in the upgrade script
