Just noticed the new "tb" feature trailing some but not all of the FPPs. Can someone point me to any documentation on what's up with dat?

the link only appears if someone has posted a "track-back" post to their blog somewhere.

A word of caution to all Moveable Typers using the track back feature- if you edit an entry that has already pinged Metafilter, make sure you remove the Metafilter ping URL before you rebuild, otherwise it will reping and double post your trackback to MeFi. I had this happen twice, the first time Matt deleted the extra TB and told me that he's working on something to prevent this from happening. The second time (I had to fix a link on my blog entry that referenced the particular Metafilter thread) I disabled the "Allow pings?" checkbox, but it still repinged MeFi and double posted, so I suspect you have to actually erase the Metafilter Track Back ping URL from the box to prevent this from happening until Matt has time to fix this problem.

I was wondering what was up with that. Thanks, evanizer.

Yup, I did the same thing to poor stavros a couple days ago. Haven't gotten around to telling the MT people about it, but it seems like a bug to me.
