As much as I like WordPress, the trackback (or rather the poor functioning of trackback) is a killer for me. I don’t want to have to work at getting trackback to work,… especially since it is so easy to use in other forms (Typepad (via MarsEdit), Blogger etc.). I may try setting up b2evolution which seems a little more complicated but also more full featured.
There is one more thing I’d like to try though. I’ll see if trackback works using MarsEdit. No, it doesn’t.
I’ve downloaded b2evolution and it does take some getting used to, but I’ll play with it anyway. Perhaps WP will fix their trackback sooner than later, and yes,… b2e trackback works.
