Site Issues – Trackbacks

For most of the day and part of the day yesterday the SpamLookup software I installed to combat trackback spam worked a little too well, blocking spam trackbacks and legitimate trackbacks. Ironically trackbacks were rejected from Six Apart’s own Typepad service.

While the SpamLookup software holds great promise, it’s not suitable for use here due to the aggressive trackback filtering employed. I can’t have legitimate trackbacks rejected, and I wasn’t getting the moderation notification (or even moderation without notification) I expected on the trackbacks The software has been removed and trackbacks should operate normally. Trackbacks to older Wizbang entries are still subject to moderation.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Feel free to resend the trackbacks…

Update: [4/19 12:30 pm] Some minor plug-in interactions were continuing to generate errors. Those are now fixed, and I’ve tested receiving trackbacks – it’s working fine.
