Upgraded to Roller 4.0

This site is now running Apache Roller 4.0. If you see anything funky, please let me know. As part of the upgrade, I did a bunch of spring cleaning, so it's possible I deleted some files I shouldn't have. As far as upgrading, the only issue I know of is this one where my categories are no longer in the same order. Since it didn't seem possible to fix easily, I decided to not worry about it and go ahead with the upgrade.

If you'd like to take Roller 4.0 for a test drive, you can use the Test Blog on this server. Username is test, password is roller.

I have been using Roller 4.0 since Release Candidate 9 and seem to always have a problem when sending out trackback urls. I must be in some spam filters or something.

I tried sending you a trackback and you're right - something is broken on your site b/c it didn't work. Are you sure you have trackbacks enabled? I sent one to Dave last night and it worked fine.

This is weird. I can't send or receive trackbacks. I do have trackbacks enabled, I also have Don't save trackbacks thought to be spam and enable verification of trackback links. Maby I should disable the spam and verification options?

I just sent a trackback to you and it worked great. I am unable to send one to for some reason it says that the response fails.

For the Interface21 blog, did you use the trackback URL? It's listed on the right side of the page:

At first I was using the wrong trackback url, but when I used the correct one I get the following error: Trackback failed, error in sending. Response was 302 - Found So who knows what the issue is with that site....
