Tracback should 301 redirect instead of 302
|Reported by:||joostdevalk||Owned by:|
If someone opens a trackback url without actually sending a trackback, he is redirected to the original post. That redirect is a 302 redirect. This causes all kinds of issues as links to the trackback URL are included in many themes by default, search engines follow these links and search engines can't really handle the 302 redirect well.
Since opening a trackback URL with a normal browser is never meant to give you anything, it's quite safe to make the 302 into a 301 redirect.
I have tested this fix and have found it to work perfectly.
