Trackback spam

  • Elliot,

    are you aware that, when you start a thread on this forum you’re likely to receieve trackback spam, coming from WordPress <[email protected]>, asking you to approve/trash or spam? With a link to the moderator panel, which off course does not work since we do not have the right privileges.

    Maybe something can be done about it?



  • Hi @Eagerbob

    Thanks for the report, however, I’m not sure I fully understand the issue..

    Can you elaborate a bit more?

    This “Can't edit repeater field, [] operator not supported for strings in repeater.php” is my support topic here. Linkspammers are trying to create a trackback/pingback on their spamsite and I am asked to approve it so that it can be placed in this older topic, where it is supposed to link to their site, raise pagerank etc.

    You probably have “Allow linknotifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks) checked?

    (I messed up the URL of the spammer,so that it does not work)

  • Thanks mate.

    I’ll have a look at disabling trackbacks!
