How to get 'Blog this' link on all posts (3 posts)

    Alrighty then, here's another element of my scheme to take over the world with WPMU... have every post on a particular WPMU install have a 'blog this' button it for users who are registered and logged in (to that WPMU install).

    Basically it'd work like the 'Press it' button in the bottom of "Write Post' so that users would automatically jump to their own 'Write Post' area with a link to that post already inserted.

    The idea is that it's a lot more attractive and simple to trackback / pingback - for people who aren't that familiar with linking.

    And that you consequently get more of them as opposed to regular comments.

    Sound like a plan? Any idea how it could be easily done?

    Cheers, James

    Without remembering the exact functions I'd probably do something like inserting the Blog This-link in each theme with a if(is_loggedin())-function next to the post-title. It would then link to the logged-in user's post page in the admin-area with the permalink posted as a get-variable? Then just insert the HTML-code inside the textarea-tag?

    That sounds about right... time for me to delve in, will feedback.

    Many thanx for pointer stutley.
