Trackback emails being sent to person who started topic

  • klink


    We are using bbpress, Memberpress (so all forums are for members only), and askimet, and a couple of other plugins. We want to get trackbacks/pingbacks so we know when other bloggers write about us. But I am surprised that our forum members are getting emails to approve spam trackbacks on forum topics that they’ve started. Is there a way to stop forum trackbacks and especially these confusing and annoying emails that are being sent to our members?

    suspect it is plugin related

    It could be a theme or plugin issue


    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.


    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, as a test switch to a default theme such as twentyfifteen, and see if this fixes.

    Then come back



    I don’t really know how it would be possible to deactivate necessary plugins and/or switch themes and still make sure the site is still usable to our paid community. It’s not something I can test, as I don’t know how the spammers are getting through in the first place.
