Don't Allow Pingbacks

| Comments |

This noon, I received some pingback notifications. It is possible that I get these messages because I included some hyperlinks that link back to my own posts. After viewing the contents, I found them meaningless and wanted to delete them. Harrison provides the reasons for not allowing pingbacks.1

As the author has said, he will simply delete the pingbacks on his blog pages. Moreover, I don’t want to bother the authors of posts to which I has linked. Therefore, I’ve found the last part of the official support page useful.2

Disabling Pingbacks

You can easily disable pingbacks on individual posts via the Discussion module on your Add New or Edit Post page:
Wordpress.com's interface
