Subject [jira] [Commented] (ROL-1275) Auto-trackback
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2013 09:26:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ROL-1275?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13751111#comment-13751111

Glen Mazza commented on ROL-1275:
---------------------------------

The term today for an "auto-trackback" appears to be "pingback", with its own specification:
http://www.hixie.ch/specs/pingback/pingback

Description of trackback vs. pingback:
http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/what-why-and-how-tos-of-trackbacks-and-pingbacks-in-wordpress/
http://codex.wordpress.org/Introduction_to_Blogging#Trackbacks

However, according to the wpbeginner blog entry nowadays both trackbacks and pingbacks are
"99% spam" so are very frequently shut off.  Allowing pingbacks should probably be a per-blog
setting and included in comment approval emails if the blogger has activated that.

> Sending trackbacks is a very good way to join a cross-blog conversation and get links
back to your blog, but it's difficult to figure out how to send a trackback. We can make it
easier. Some blog servers send trackbacks automatically and Roller should be able to do the
same. Here's how it could work:
> - Blogger creates a blog entry
> - Blogger hits publish button to publish blog entry
> - Roller parses the blog entry looking for links
> - For each link found:
>     - Roller parses page that is linked to
>     - If page has trackback autodiscovery, then Roller sends trackback to the page's
trackback URL
> Isses:
> - What about entries that are posted to the future? 
> - Do we need a trackbackout table to keep track of sent and pending trackbacks?
