separate trackbacks and pings from comments

    Right now, trackbacks and pings appear alongside comments, which creates clutter. I'd like trackbacks to appear separately, preferably after the comments. It would be great to choose whether the trackbacks go before or after, though.

    It is just a matter of using the right theme, or modify your own theme to only show comments and trackbacks seperately using comment_type:

    That may be, but I think it would be more convienent to have that option already there instead of hunting for code or trying to come up with it.

    I wholeheartedly agree with this. Trackbacks and comments are different. OK a trackback may be due to an external comment but the default trackback display is too confusing and difficult to read in many cases. And as such, they make comments more difficult to read.

    I think all WordPress users would agree that simplicity and clarity are key to WordPress' success.

    I think an option within the categories page in admin (or in the options) to seperate trackbacks from comments would be awesome.

    It would also help for styling because I think many developers/designers would prefer to style their trackbacks and comments differently.

    If there was a decent plugin that achieved this functionality I would use it but I have only found one and it isn't perfect:

    This is already implemented. Here's a recent tutorial for modifying your theme to separate comments and trackbacks.
