A screencast demonstrating the pingback module is available at: http://www.masteringdrupal.com/screencast/drupal-pingback/play (thanks to greggles).
The Pingback module enables Drupal to send and receive pingbacks to and from nodes. It is a pingback user agent as specified in the Pingback 1.0 specification.
- Send and receive pingbacks
- Enable pingbacks per content type
- Send pingbacks on node creation or on cron (in case you post many links and want to queue up the pingbacks)
Unlike the trackback module for Drupal, this module register pingbacks as comments. You can manage received pingbacks using the normal comment pages. The one drawback to this approach is that anonymous users must be able to post comments (not a problem for most blogs).
The module was originally created by laexter
The 5.x branch will receive bug fixes only. Don't hesitate posting feature requests for the 6.x branch.
