I finally finished my linkback system last night. I’ve been testing it but wanted to make sure things were right before i did it site wide. I was inspired a few weeks ago by 0xDECAFBAD‘s ShowReferers. So first i did a little PHP that would track each referer to the front page and store it in a database. Next i added the little referers box for the last ten referers here. Once i had all that up and running, i converted the whole site to PHP, and added a new field to the database to keep track of each page. Now anytime you click on an individual entry, you can see who all has linked to it. Kinda interesting, i don’t get many links, but writing the code was fun. The links to the index page get purged every 48 hours so they stay fresh and it keeps the database small.

  1. Hey, that was exactly what I was thinking of doing to my site this weekend 🙂 Already got everything moved to PHP, and was about to reimplement the linkback system in PHP too.

    Got Source? 🙂
