Disable Pingbacks/Trackbacks on WordPress?

Anyone can guide me how to disable Pingbacks/Trackbacks on WordPress?

I feel annoy when more emails about that sent to my email addressspent more time to delete them.

Hello!

You should folow steps below:

Open phpMyAdmin (your wp DB) -> SQL and run:

UPDATE wp_posts SET ping_status='closed' WHERE post_status = 'publish' AND post_type = 'post';
UPDATE wp_posts SET ping_status='closed' WHERE post_status = 'publish' AND post_type = 'page';
Don't forget to back-up your database before running this. This will close all pingbacks for posts/pages added until now.

Go to Discussion Settings and disable Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.)

Go to Comments and search [...]. It will show a list of all trackbacks. You should delete them (Be careful: if one of real comments contains [...] within, then it will be shown here). You can delete them (Trash & Empty Trash).

Hope this helps!
