I'm playing around with Movable Type's new TrackBack
feature by plugging it into my comments system. If you maintain your site with Movable Type you can include the following URL in your "URL(s) to ping" while posting:
Once you've posted and it pings my site, the title, permalink, and an excerpt of your
post will appear as a comment on this post.
The ID in the URL above is my local system's ID of this post. (I'm not using Movable Type to maintain my weblog.) By changing the ID, you can comment both remotely and locally (at the same time!) on any post here. I'm trying to come up with some way to automate this process a little more. I can't really test this because I'm not using Movable Type to maintain any public blogs. If you try it out and it doesn't work, please let me know by leaving a comment here the old fashioned way. Thanks!
Do you think this would be a useful addition to existing weblog comment systems?
