Trackbacks

FYI, trackbacks should be working now. What this means is that if you link to a post on another blog that has also enabled trackbacks, you can create a link back to your post on their blog. The way to do this is to look for a "trackback url" somewhere on the target post (you can this post's trackback url below). Once you find it, copy and paste it into the box that says "Send Trackbacks:" in TDR's "Submit Blog entry" page (the same page where you type in the text of your post). When you hit the "Submit" button, a new link should be created back to your post on the target post's page.

Due to a quirk of our blogging software, the trackback window uses a rich text editor, which causes an attempt to trackback to a marked-up URL. I'm working on a fix for this, but in the meantime the workaround is to click the "disable rich-text" link below the trackback text area. This will turn off the rich text editor and allow you to submit plain-text trackback URLs.
