trackback link (6 posts)

    Trackbacks and pingbacks are now treated like regular comments. So I think the trackback/pingback_popup_link functions are no longer meaningful. Just use comments_popup_link() instead.

    I hit the same problem trying to get trackback/pingback working. Not sure I understand how this should now be implemented as the documentation refers to the old functions. If I use comments_popup_link() then I get the regular comments popup with no reference to Trackback/Pingback.
    Can anyone tell me how I should now call the comments functions from the template to use Trackback/Pingback. Should I be looking at the parameters I pass?

    If you have .71 and have pings enabled for a post it should give you information about trackbacking a post. Look at the default b2comments or b2popupcomments for an example.

    Thanks for the reply. I have worked through this again and my problem seems to be with the pings not being enabled. I have set pingbacks to enabled (1) in b2config.php but when I try to set pings as open on a post it seems to set itself to closed every time. It says open when I create the post but then is closed when I check it on the edit screen. Any ideas? I will try to hunt through the code tomorrow but any clues as to why this is happening would be appreciated.

    this is really not funny the readme says other things then you do here :( and what you say is not complete for now so if i do the comment popup thing only my comments are doubled as i already had the comments included.
    So give us a tag which will work instead of some readme which is not good and some tips about see the comment popup for details.... there are no details there for the new way the thing are going now.
    So please give us accurate info on the use of trackbacks as it drives me nuts for the last hours
