Pingbacks and Webmentions

Has anyone worked out a plugin that create “webmention” ping backs to links cited in a discourse topic?

These have been dead a long time…


Mainly, I was wanting to see how to SEND trackbacks, not receive them. You also wrote this:

But I still believe in the concept of trackbacks. I want to read your response to my posts, whether it’s on your site, or mine as a comment. So rather than relying on direct peer-to-peer links, I’m exploring the use of external indexing services. I experimented with using Google searches to find all the pages that have linked to the URL of a post, but I wasn’t happy with the results.

It would be interesting to see how tracebacks could be reimagined in a better way.
