Setting the trackback URL from Live Writer

    Question

  • Is there a way to set the trackback URL for wp blogs from within the Live Writer?

    I know the ATOM publishing protocol doesn't support this, but wasn't sure if the Live Writer has some other hooks in place for this?

  • If you are on a blog that supports this feature, you can hit F2 and look near the bottom of the main window of Windows Live Writer.

    Yea, unfortunately WLW currently doesn't support setting the trackback URL for Live Space blogs. :-(

  • It's actually not Live Writer that has the problem. The problem in this case is Windows Live Spaces actually sucks quite a bit in terms of functionality that it offers. Writer can only support what it's given from the blog provider.
