By default trackbacks and pingbacks are automatically shown with the comments after your WordPress blog posts. There are some WordPress themes that allow you to separate trackbacks, pingbacks from comments and there is also a method from Pro Blog Design that allows you to do so on any WordPress site. In this lesson, you will learn how to simply hide trackbacks and pingbacks from showing up on your WordPress posts.
Hide Trackbacks is a free WordPress plugin that prevents trackbacks and pingbacks from showing up as comments on your posts.
Simply install and activate it. Once the plugin is activated, trackbacks and pingbacks are no longer shown on your posts and comment count is automatically updated to reflect this in your comment’s section. The plugin doesn’t delete your trackbacks and pingbacks, you can still manage them from your WordPress admin area dashboard.
