Standalone Trackback for Radio Userland

I’m pleased to announce the availability of a standalone trackback server implementation for Radio Userland. The trackback implementation is derived from Ben Trott’s Standalone Trackback and adds the html sanitization code from Brad Choate’s Sanitize Plug-in for Movable Type. It allows users who are hosting their own Radio Userland weblog to host their own trackback server as well.


  • Web Server capable of running cgi scripts
  • Perl with the following Perl Modules:
    • File::Spec
    • Storable
    • CGI
    • CGI::Cookie I believe that these are core modules as of Perl 5.6.0.

PS: If you’ve been following my Trackback Adventures, then you know that I eventually ended up modifying my installation of Radio Userland. This implementation requires no changes to your installation.
