How to send a trackback with blogger

If your a blogger and you use the blogger platform from google you may have noticed, it is not easy to send trackbacks with blogger.

Trackbacks are a common way to link back to other blogs which you want to comment on.

I found this article from Any Beard's blog which is a great how-to for doing this if you use greasemonkey and firefox.

Install Greasemonkey

Lots of people might have it already and I know 65% of my readers use Firefox. If you don't have it already, it is extremely useful, and there are thousands of user scripts for it.

Install Blogger Trackback

After you have Greasemonkey installed, install the appropriate script - the developer says both can co-exist, but I haven't tested that.

If you are using New Blogger, you can use this trackback script for greasemonkey.

If you are using old blogger, there is an older script available
