Tonight’s second plugin from the Ulrich Plugin Foundry is an interesting twist on TrackBack: TrackForward is a plugin to list the TrackBack urls that an entry pinged, for easy gathering by the next person to come into a conversation. This entry is pinging his, so the TrackBack popup will have an example of TrackForward in action.

Oh, neat. But I’ve already fried my categories with TrackBack – I’m afraid my journal may end up translated to Tagalog if I tried to install this. So I’ll just admire. From afar.

Ah, that’s ok. While I’d love to see more people implement TF, it’s really useful for people like me who ping several entries with one go. Now, if you fall into that category…. ;)

Absolutely not. I ping very rarely.

And besides: there’s no one left to ping when you’re a raging, egomaniacal rock star. Just sayin’.

Except other raging, egomaniacal rock stars. Who probably take offense at your interpretation of their single unique thought process. And vice versa. ;)

Phil 2. I just call him Phil 2. Of course, this is because my ego refuses to accept that I could be Phil 2. I’m Phil 1, because I knew me first. ;)

Two last word junkies ’round these parts can’t be a good thing.

Great, now I have to start versioning the thing. ;) It seems some people were getting strange little hash errors

TrackForward ist ein MT-Plugin, dass eine Liste der Ping-URL’s generiert und in das Trackbackfenster einfügt. Dadurch kann ein neu in die Diskussion Einsteigender (!wordcreation!) gleich alle ver’track’ten Seiten anpingen. Mehr dazu auf M…
