Pingbacks and trackbacks ... (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I am just now looking into the pingback and trackback phenomenon. For one, I don't completely understand it (though would like to, so if you have any reading, please pass my way).

    And two: how do I include another blogger's comments about my post in my "comments" section as I have seen in various other sites automatically ? I can get the trackback url easily enough ... but what do I have to do to make the comments work?

    Thanks,
    Damon

    2. You cannot. They have to use the ping or trackback feature in their blog to ping or send a TB to you.
    All you can do: set your blog to allow it. See admin > Options > Discussion

    3.For testing your pings and TB see this site:
