For the last few days I’ve been searching all over the place for a plugin to do inline trackbacks. I’ve got em now, you’ll see what I’m talking about at the end of a few posts here on the main page.
Simply Kimberly had a plugin, but a 404 is recieved upon trying to download. Luckily, Slobokan came to fill the 404 void. Actually, Slobokan noticed Kimberly’s original plugin wasn’t counting pingbacks, only trackbacks. He took it upon himself, much to my pleasure, to fix the plugin to include pingbacks and trackbacks. Now, that’s something I could have done, but I wouldn’t have written a plugin. I’d have just hacked some PHP into my index.php file. The problem with me doing that is I’ll forget what I’d done eventually and would just confuse myself.
I hacked inline trackbacks into the last WordPress theme I was using, it was dirty and I don’t want to do it again. I don’t see a point in re-inventing the wheel when numerous people probably already have re-invented “the wheel”.
So, all you WordPress folks out there that’ve been wanting inline trackbacks, hit up Slobokan’s site and download. If you’re not familiar with PHP, don’t worry. Installation is extremely easy.
Perhaps I’ll throw a couple trackback parties soon. Not sure though, the amount of traffic that seems to be generated by those makes me a little nervous. Bandwidth is an issue for me unfortunately.
