I've already posted this on neocrome.net, but i honestly think that this should be in the core code of cotonti. It's the way that most new CMSes operate (including drupal, joomla and others which arent blogs per se)

You will notice in many blogs, in the comments section, many comments like this: Pingback from &

This should just be a well integrated plugin, maybe core plugin though

It's basically one of the most prised features of blogs and the XMLRPC standard. It's a way to tell other pages/sites that you link to them so they can link to you (which is a click on "yes" in wordpress and most other software)

So basically it's real-time ultimate link-exchange.

Related pages link to each other, they get relevant links, you get traffic, everybody wins.

The way you suggested not only complicates the simple feature with hundreds of useless code, but it relies on several other PHP functions that not everyone will have installed. Besides it also makes things confusing since it shows the "pings" as a comment instead of it's own separate box. Most blogs do it the way you described, but major sites like YouTube do it the way my function does it.

True, a good feature for those that really need the traffic. I just prefer simpler functions. :)
