support for trackback URLs in Writer when publishing to Windows Live Spaces RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the BETA help online docs it says that you support adding trackback URLs to posts if your blogging service supports the feature... I know that I have used trackback URLs in Windows Live Spaces directly so I'm curious why I am unable to add a trackback URL in my Writer BETA posts?  Thanks... Darrenbe

  • Great question.  Unfortunately, this is a limiation in the way Spaces (and other blog providers) allows 3rd parties (including Writer) to interact with their service - essentially, there is no way to do this today on services like Spaces and Blogger (even though you can specifiy trackbacks directly through their web inerface).  Writer does work on services like Wordpress.

    Hope this helps answer your question.
    Thanks for using Writer.
