Pingback not sent to https sites
|Reported by:||norocketsurgeon||Owned by:|
Wordpress does not attempt to send pingbacks to https sites. I have tracked this problem to the regular expression used to find links to ping inside a post that is being published. The regular expression currently will only filter out links to http sites and not https sites. I have modified the regular expression to include https sites and included a patch with this ticket.
how to reproduce the problem:
- enable sending and receiving of pings/trackbacks on your site
- create a post with with a link to an https site
- publish the post
- no ping will be sent to the https site
