Community Post Have the CD News comments been taken over by another site? Posted on February 23, 2013 by joanna Just wondering. They are simple recaps to another site. A little clarification would be great.
By default, WordPress treats both actual comments and pingbacks (when another site uses a CD News story URL) as “comments,” so what you’re seeing are other sites mentioning/linking to CD News. No takeover involved. It’s possible to tell WordPress not to look for those mentions (and not run them in the comment feed), but it’s sometimes nice to see who’s referencing or building on a story.
