Trackbacks... what do they do? (3 posts)

    I'm sorry for the dumb question but what exactly are those trackback links for? I mean... do they really do anything worthwhile? I just have a small personal site wiht my journal... do I NEED them? Is it possible to remove them? After activating that wp-hashcash plugin, now I get trackback spam. So can I remove it all together? Will this affect anything else in my blog?

    What trackbacks are: http://codex.wordpress.org/Introduction_to_Blogging#Pingback_and_trackback

    Do you need them? Probably not. To completely disable trackbacks, delete the wp-trackback.php file.
