Do pingbacks work with bbPress, without caveats?

  • It strikes me as a really useful feature to have for forums, yet it doesn’t seem to be included by default for the forum post type. Is there any particular reason for this?

    No reason other than wanting to nail down the root functionality of the forums themselves first. There are lots of little WP do-dads that we can take advantage of, and pingbacks will likely be on the list for 2.1.

    Great, thanks for letting me know. So there is no speed arguments, e.g. a site with 1’000’000 posts could get bogged down if it has thousands of incoming links?

    p.s. sorry for repeatedly posting in ‘Installation’, I just don’t take notice of it very easily.

    It wouldn’t be anymore bogged down than a site with 1 million blog posts, which is to say that once you have that kind of traffic and data store, you are probably backed by the proper hardware to handle it. :)

    @johnjamesjacoby I read and am just wondering if I create a forum topic with an external URL that it will tell that blog that I pinged them, now?
