Pingback not sent to https sites

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
