I know that several bloggers in the past including myself have attempted to use trackbacks with a Yola blog using the Disqus comment feature and no solution was available. And no one could figure out how to do it.

That is until we put Peter on the Job and he figured out how to make it work.

We had some difficulties with trackbacks and that has been discussed in the past in these threads.

Trackback is a great feature that allows you to add links when someone writes about your blog posts or when you write about another bloggers posts.

Peter wrote an article here about trackbacks recently

When I write a blog post most times I like to use references and resources to gather information. When I do that I like to share that source with my readers. In addition to that I would like to add my trackback to the original posters site.

I have not been able to do that but what I did instead was leave a comment on their blog and in the comment box I would say " hey I wrote about your post here and I would leave a link."

That worked but it is not a trackback.

Anyways Peter found a trackback wizard that enables you to put the trackback on the other persons site. It is easy to do Peter has tested it in Disqus comments and I have tested it in wordpress blogs.

All you have to do is have the trackback address of the blog you are attempting to put your trackback on. And put it in the trackback wizard.

Here is the link to instructions how to use the wizard on peters blog.

I hope this helps some others and I am thankful for this developement and I will be using this feature alot.

Thanks Peter
