No More Auto Discovery

I’ve turned off auto discovery of trackback because it seems to cause me more problems than it solves. If I link to you and forget to send a trackback, let me know.

    Was it detecting the wrong stuff, or just not detecting at all?

    I’ve had it not detect some trackbacks, double send some pings when I edit posts, stuff like that. In one case, it didn’t detect trackbacks it should have, so I edited the post to sent them by hand and the pings were sent twice.

    It’s entirely possible that there’s user error involved, but I think it’s just easier for me to add the trackback URLs by hand.

    Of course, I’m also the type of person who would rather hand-craft the HTML for each post, include

    tags, than let Moveable Type do it.
