Creating a link fest (5 posts)

    I have been searching to find a way in WP to create a link fest/open post similar to what is found here: http://www.mudvillegazette.com/archives/003246.html
    where the blog name and post title from the site that creates a trackback are automatically added to the post. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Ummm ... It looks like a post that was created with "Open Post" as the title. I don't see anything that is remotely technical there.

    Sorry, you're right. What I'm looking for doesn't show up in their archived page. Going to the main page will show you what I am looking for. http://www.mudvillegazette.com

    Oh, now that is technical. Don't ask me how to do this (I know it's possible), but you could theoretically use a re-blogging plugin to present the RSS feed for the comments and trackbacks from post 'A' as the content of post 'A'. That should be the easy part. The hard part will be styling the links so they display nicely. Again, I have never done this before, but I know that it's possible. I hope that's enough to get you started.

    I found a relativly easy way to do it! Using Kimberly's plugin and Mark's Run php code, but instead of putting the display code on the index page as Kimberly lists put the following in your post:

    <phpcode> inline_trackbacks() ; </phpcode>

    where you want the trackbacks to appear.
