Downloading Comments and Trackback Pings

I have updated my comment and trackback package to allow comments and trackbacks to be downloaded as xml. The download link is available from the admin interface (presented at the bottom of the index page).


  • Composite Trackback RSS feed
  • Composite Comment RSS feed
  • HTML Sanitization from Brad Choate’s Sanitize Plugin for Moveable Type.
  • Tag Moderation for Trackback and Comments – trackback pings and comments are immediately available with most html tags removed (p allowed for readability). Sanitized tags are displayed upon approval.
  • Outbound Link Blacklist – trackback pings and comments that contain outbound links to banned sites are blocked. The user is responsible for providing a function identifying banned sites.
  • Rejection of trackback pings and comments that contain an excessive number of links.
  • Trackback and Comment deletion (unfortunately, this does not propagate to the RSS feed).
  • Comment Editing


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