Receive/Send Trackbacks

Post by Emmanuel_Chanel »

Receive/Send Trackbacks
I requested the mod for receiving trackbacks on 3.0.x. But nobody replies. To be bad, I'm not good at phpBB or at php itself. Oh... I'm not good at trackback function, either...
I've found the mod to send/receive trackbacks for phpBB2. It's referred on http://support.hiikun.net/bbs/topic-20.html , the Japanese forum about phpBB2. But I don't understand Korean or if it works on phpBB3.(I'm a Japanese man.)
If we had this function, people of phpBB forums can see the blog entries related to the topics with received trackback and people seeing blogs can see phpBB's topics related to the entries.
This function make the link between the phpBB forum and the blog communities be much better.

I'll move this to discussion for now, because it does not contain enough details on the proposed implementation (how/where would they be displayed what kind of configuration/permissions would be necessary, what to do about trackback spam etc.)

Trackbacks is a nice concept but it's a bit dated since people don't just "blog". Maybe this could be broaden a bit to something like "reactions" including blog trackbacks, retweets, facebook shares/likes, etc.

Since those 2 social networks are huge at the moment I wouldn't worry if this is future proof, or at least I'm sure including them would be as possitive as trackbacks.
Slightly better English than it was in 2005, still improving :D

I'm in doubt if this has what it takes to be in the core or not... I'll go with ±0. Depending on how this should be worked on it is +1 (ok for core) or -1 (and what a great extension).

It'd be pretty easy, I might have a go at it.

Reading http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trackback, this sounds like an API for sending spam to me.
