Give TrackBack Some AJAX Love in WP 2.1 … Please?

with one comment

As I’ve been using WP 2.0, the thing I find myself most wishing for is some AJAX love for TrackBack. Yes, many argue that TB is broken, and while I understand why, some of us are still true believers. Anyway, what is with this space-separated nonsense at this point? Seems like this would be a key place to dump an URI, hit a button, and have another form block open for the next one. It would be even cooler if there were a way for WP to check for the validity of the TrackBack URI upon a Save and Continue Editing run.

If you’re looking for prior art on this, I’m specifically thinking of the “Add URL” functionality in Alex King‘s Tasks software.

  1. I totally agree to be honest. I’m not a fan of the space separated stuff in general. I mean, from a developers perspective I guess I can understand it, because it’s easier to just have the one field and explode the string based on the space, but really … it doesn’t do anything to improve the UI and is in general confusing. I would say it’s being lazy, but I have more respect for the WP developers then to believe that’s the case. Hopefully it’s something they can get around to working on eventually though.
