Description Jim Hu 2006-06-26 14:09:38 UTC
trackback.php is not saving pings into the trackbacks table...
or, it looks like it's inserting them and then deleting them, which doesn't make
sense from my very limited understanding of the code.

When I ping, I get a success XML message, but nothing is added to the database.
To debug, I made a copy of trackbacks.php and echoed the sql.  Manually running
this in mysql inserts just fine, but the tb_id is incremented every time I run
trackbacks.php and get XMLsuccess()

print_r ($dbw) reports that the insert statement is the last statement before
XMLsuccess() is called.  I also get no error messages in either the httpd log or
in /var/mysql/hostname.err.  However, print_r ($dbw) reports 

    [mFailFunction] => 1

I don't know what that means.

Trackbacks are disabled by default. Please ensure that you 
have enabled them.
Comment 2 Jim Hu 2006-06-26 16:08:06 UTC
I already have

$wgUseTrackbacks = true;

in LocalSettings.php.  Is there something else I need to set?
Comment 3 Kkkdc @jawiki 2006-08-28 12:26:58 UTC
Forget to commit a transaction?

I insert "$dbw->commit();" after $dbw->insert in trackback.php,
it works fine.
Comment 4 Rob Church 2006-08-28 14:29:07 UTC
As far as I can tell, the code doesn't begin a transaction, so one doesn't need
to be committed. Oh, and trackback.php is a lesson on how not to write PHP.

Fixed in r32314.
