WordPress Trackbacks Broken UPDATE: Fixed

As is currently being discussed on this forum, WordPress.com trackbacks are broken. The WordPress trackbacks option hides and comes out like it’s supposed to but there is no trackback box to put trackbacks into. If you need to do trackbacks you can use haloscan’s manual trackback page. You will have to create a haloscan account to use it.

Update: As of 8:45PM CDT on 5/20/08 it’s fixed.

Many Turkish bloggers and expat bloggers feel that the recent banning of WordPress in Turkey is not only a sign of things to come, but a cause for embarrassment.

Read it all.
