Questions for my WordPress readers.

I know since i have been blogging so long, I should understand this concept… but will someone please explain trackback. How it works and everything? And how i get a trackback button on my posts? Also, that Comments rss button (leta i think i saw this on yours). Thanks for the help in advance!

    It should appear on your posts. I didn’t see one, but will look down and try to do so for you 🙂

    If not what I often do is say “So and so said” and then link it. It will then be picked up.

    AVOR- Thanks so much. So far I have been linking like that so if it get’s picked up that is great. I had just seen on the one site, verum serum, that i had referenced when i looked back and saw the comments it had a comment that said i posted a link…. i thought that was pretty cool 🙂

    i’m not sure what trackback or how it works but as far as the rss button for comments it already came with one of the wordpress theme that i choose. it’s the misty 3.1 theme. now i have a question for you. do you know how to edit these themes with css? i was wanting to take out they hydro74girl title on my main page.

    On your ‘write’ page under your editor you will find a field box titled trackbacks.
    You need to open it, by clicking the ‘+’ sign. blogs do not have specific seperate trackbacks for the blogs. The permalink which is the direct link to our articles are used as trackbacks too.

    If you wish to trackback to non blogs look for their trackback link. They are usually found under the article somewhere, listed next to the permalink link. As an aside aways be sure to link with the permalink link.

    Copy/paste the thrackback link in your now opened trackback fieldbox. Be sure to add a space between it and other trackback links you will be adding.

    BadExample has a great mini tut on trackbacks that you may find usefull as well.

    I hope this helps. 🙂

    Hi again lol
    I apologize for the back to back.

    “ blogs do not have specific seperate trackbacks for the blogs. The permalink which is the direct link to our articles are used as trackbacks too.”

    I should add something I had forgotten I have found at least one (there may be others) blog theme that actually has a trackback link. As before, just look for the trackback link.

    Thanks everyone for the help 🙂
    Velveth.- no worries on back to back, i do it ALL the time, but largely due to mis-spells and horrible grammar 🙂 I hit post too fast then see a glaring mistake 🙂 I will work on the track back after church, when my kids take a nap.

    Also congratulations on your FATWA status on Radical Muslem Site. What in the world did you do? Was it because your comment? Does that scare you at all?

    Your welcome. 🙂 I’m sure you will be trackbacking like a pro real soon!

    Thanks. A combo of my comment and certain content within my blog perhaps. Not sure really…

    Scared? Heck no! He is but a tiny, tiny little blip on the blogosphere.
    A little nobody …
    That of course does not mean, the fight against radical islam and it’s will to spread it’s evil across the globe is over.

    Not by a long shot.

    Motherhood is not a simple, but unqiue time in life. It changes so many things and the way how you see the world. It is interesting to participate in the experiences of other women.
