How to disable trackbacks in WordPress?

Posted by

Hello All,

Trackbacks are always abused by SpamBots and may cause problems. Hence, it is recommended to disable trackbacks until one can clear all the complications which may arise. In order to disable trackbacks in WordPress one need to follow the below mentioned steps:

1) Login into the WordPress Admin area.
2) Go to Options -> Discussion tab.
3) Uncheck “Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.)”.

That’s it!

Thanks,

Shane G.
