Trackbacks have been one of the biggest downfalls of Pligg. While the feature is built in, it has never worked properly or at all.
On step 2 of the submission process, there is a field at the bottom that will auto populate if Pligg can find the trackback on the source page, or you can enter it manually. No matter what you enter here, Pligg will not ping the source to tell it that it has been mentioned on your Pligg website.
After playing around with this feature, I came up with a way to get this to work in v9.8.2.
On step 1, rather than putting the URL, for example,
enter the trackback instead. So, it would be,
This will ping the source and a trackback to your Pligg will be placed on the source URL.
This is because once you submit at step 1, your Pligg does ping the source so it can auto-populate the ‘title’ field.
I have gotten dozens of trackbacks for one of my Pliggs using this method.
I have not come up with or found a way to get trackbacks working in v9.9.0, if you have a tip, please leave a comment.
Now, get trackbacking!
