No support for pingback.extensions.getPingbacks() in XML-RPC

There is no support for the pingback.extensions.getPingbacks() method in Wordpress. This method is not in the pingback specification, but it's still useful.

The method takes an url as argument and returns an array of urls that have pingbacked. By supporting this method it would be possible to retrieve a list of pingbacks to any url from a different server. Personally I would use this to create automatic playlists of entries with video or audio content.

The method is described at:

Just added this method to the new XMLRPC backend in CVS (wp-admin/xmlrpc.php). :)

I tested with the nightly build from sep. 18th and it worked beautifully!

My only problem (this was my first WP install) was that xml-rpc.php created warnings because it couldn't include wp-config.php. It was looking for '../wp-config.php' and that didn't work because wp-config.php is in the same directory as xml-rpc.php. After I edited xml-rpc.php to look for 'wp-config.php' (on line 6) everything worked.

Re: ../wp-config.php, that's a detail I forgot to fix right after the sourceforge guys helped me move xmlrpc.php from wp-admin to the root dir. It's been fixed in CVS since. :)
