Just how is this supposed to work in typo?
trackbacks when you link to websites in blog posts, as long as you link
to the trackback URL, though I’m not sure as I’m new to Typo myself.
This blog post -
seems to support this view. He links to a trackback URL in his post and
then edits it saying Typo automatically sent a trackback, so hopefully
that’s how it works.
That’s what I thought too, but note what happens if you click on the
link in that article, you won’t get to the article he’s referencing.
The trackback url is different than the article’s url, and I don’t see
any way that typo could automatically figure out how to ping the right
So I tried adding a hidden trackback url reference in my article like
The idea is to simulate the movable type field for a trackback url.
But this doesn’t seem to work, after saving the article again, it
looks okay, the hidden url reference shows up in the html source, but
the trackback isn’t showing up in the referenced article. I’m not
sure if this is because:
- Typo isn’t processing the a tag because of the style.
- Typo isn’t pinging when an existing article is editted and saved.
- Some other typo quirk
- It’s getting there but I can’t see it because of caching
somewhere, although reloading the other article in firefox with the
shift key depressed (which I think forces not using the local cache)
doesn’t show an update.
- Something else.
Interestingly, I had another trackback quirk in typo recently when I
referred to one of my own articles with it’s regular link, and typo
did generate a bogus trackback entry which showed up in the feedback
