TrackBack Support

Posted on Sep 8, 2003 now available here.

My new TrackBack implementation in Python is now wired in here. It's obviously new, so please try it out and see if it works.

Articles don't yet include any indication that a trackback has occurred, but you can see if they exist by using ?__mode=list as an option to the trackback URL.

The implementation supports the submission of trackback pings, retrieval of the list of pings in table form (list mode) and RSS generation (use ?__mode=rss). Details in the RSS output are not complete (incorrect title and description for the story header), but I'm unclear what they might be used for.

I have an outbound trackback implementation completed as well, based on Matt Croydon's Perhaps I'll try submitted some trackbacks myself tomorrow!
