Latest version is 1.1.
FixBack is a WordPress plugin that ensures trackbacks and pingbacks are sent with the correct link back to your blog. This fixes a problem in the current version of WordPress.
Basic (unfancy) WordPress permalinks look like this:
If you have fancy permalinks enabled, you’ll have fancy permalinks that look like this:
If you publish a post and send pingbacks or trackbacks to other blogs, your permalink URL is sent as part of the ping/trackback.
Unfortunately, if you create a post in WordPress 220.127.116.11, save it as a draft, and then publish it, then WordPress will send pingbacks and trackbacks with the unfancy URL instead of the fancy one. The same thing happens if you create a post and click “Advanced Editing” before publishing it. (Behind the scenes, WordPress creates a draft when you do this.)
This plugin fixes this error. There is a very detailed explanation of the problem and the solution in my WordPress pingback and trackback bug post.
Fixback works with WordPress versions 18.104.22.168 and higher. However, WordPress 2 fixes the pingback/trackback bug, so Fixback is not necessary if you’re using WordPress 2.

- That’s all
I write these WordPress plugins because I enjoy doing it, but it does take up a lot of my time. If you think this plugin is useful, please consider donating some appropriate amount.
