Trackback uri (4 posts)

    The trackback uri has never worked properly and is a real pain in the butt. if you click it you just end up back at the permalink. This is not the trackback uri. The only way for people to use it is to hover over it and manually write it down. That is ridiculous, counter intuitive and counter productive. I had to take to printing it as text.

    Please fix it to go to a page with the url in the browser address box or a pop-up with the trackback printed in the window or better yet an option for
    either.

  2. Right-click on link. Select "Copy Shortcut" (in IE/Win) or "Copy Link Location" (Firefox). Other browsers may differ, but any usable browser should have an option to copy the link location to the clipboard.

    You could also edit your theme's comments.php template (if it doesn't have one it uses the one from the default theme), and set it up to display the url as text rather than a link.

    LesBessent,
    Sure, but this is not intuitive to no computer savy people. I always set up for the lowest common denominator and since the request I made is how all the other blog systems work that is what people are used to. So I want that option.

    Kafkaesqui,
    That is how I have it set up but this leads to other problems when shrinking the window in IE and forget Firfox since it doesn't wrap long lines at all it just disappears behind theright sidebar.

    This is something that really needs to be changed. There is no other way I can find in the codex to use the hook to behave properly. Properly meaning the norm.
