#7676 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Change pingback/trackbacks to use new HTTP API

Reported by: Otto42 Owned by: jacobsantos
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.6.1
Component: General Keywords:

The pingback and trackback functions are still using direct socket connections to perform their tasks. These are problematic on some servers, and they need to be changed over to the new HTTP API to let them work in more places.

Conversion should be relatively straightforward in most cases, using the new wp_remote_get and wp_remote_post and such.

Well, I'll support that, but I still think the HTTP API needs more testing. I can write up a patch today.

#2 follow-up: @westi

I assume this will fix #7696 as well.
