One-Liner Wednesday – A favour?


Hi, my friends!

I’m using today’s One-Liner Wednesday prompt to see if we can get pingbacks working again.

I received a reply from the Happiness Engineers to say they tried a pingback and it worked, so they can’t see a problem. Here’s the email:

Hello there,

Thank you for reaching out.

My message to WP: Is there any chance pingbacks will be working again soon?

I checked and can see that the pingback is working on your website. You can see a screenshot of a test of the pingback on your site here:

You can explain if there is a specific site that you are not receiving the pingbacks from and we can help check this for you.

(NOTE) The Pingbacks may not work if the site from which you are getting a pingback is set to Private. If their site is set to Private, it may not push any notification for the links you add to your blog as Pingbacks.

You need to let the site you getting the pingback be set to public.

So what I figured we can do (or you can do, rather, as a favour) is post your prompt post as usual with your regular (attempt to) ping back to this post.

IF YOUR PINGBACK DOESN’T SHOW UP IN THE COMMENTS, comment with your link and add to your comment “I tried a pingback on this post and it doesn’t work.”

If they’re still not working, I can send the Happiness Engineers a link to this post and they can see whose “specific site” it’s not working from.

If they’re working now, this was all for nothing and you can carry on.

Thanks in advance for your help!

If you would like to participate in this prompt, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post, and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, like Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

    • Disregard that. It did work, but not until I had to do a “login” to leave you a comment. It seems like I must do a manual login for every self-hosted or WordPress hosted site.

    Thanks for sharing the information you got from the engineers, Linda. Hopefully they don’t break them again. I hope you’re having a nice week.

    This is one of my favorite short stories in the “The Great Dagmaru” series. I love the characters and the story is so well written.
