I’ve finally gotten Movable Type’s Standalone TrackBack system installed and working. As you can see each story now has a “0 Comments” or “1 Comment”, etc link at its end. Clicking on this will not only show comments left by other visitors, but it will allow you to leave comments for all the world (well, at least that small part of it that reads my blog) to see. It’s sort of like the old graffiti walls on BBSs.
I don’t claim to fully understand the intricacies of Trackback (as opposed to a regular old comment system), but it seems to work and that makes me happy.
Give it a try if you’re itching to say something. Just be nice. Or at least polite.
