We slapped together a simple Trackback implementation this evening. It was easier than I expected. It’s not perfect and there may be a number of bugs but it should be functional. I’m curious to see whether any of the bloggers who comment on this site and run Trackback-enabled blogs will use it.


[Later: There was a trackback ping, but no data. Weird. A bug? Perhaps. Let me know.]

Just pinged. I know it’s unrelated… but I’m just testing.

Looks like it worked. Thanks Derek.

you mention ping .. Now how the hell does that work?

Trackback pings are a way to create a link between a blog entry on one weblog and a blog entry on another. Think of it as commenting on someone’s blog, in your own blog. And checkout Movable Type’s definition.
