If you use WordPress you probably know that if you link from one of your posts to another you receive a pingback, although both posts are yours. Some people like this to happen. I don’t, it clutters up my comments.
So, instead of using full urls (e.g. http://www.financaspessoais.pt/about) I started using relative urls (e.g. /about), that way I wouldn’t receive my own pingbacks – DON’T DO THIS, it is likely to mess up with your feeds.
You see, if you use relative urls (e.g. /about) your reader’s feed agreggator (or feedburner or similar) may use a different base url and you end up with useless links (e.g. instead of /about pointing to http://www.financaspessoais.pt/about, it could wrongly point to http://feeds.feedburner.com/about).
What to do then? Use full urls and install this WordPress plugin: No Self Pings
