Comments RSS Feed
I've created a comments RSS feed for my weblog. I looked into SimpleComments to get it integrated with trackbacks, but that plugin seems to only work within the context of an entry. If anybody has any suggestions on how to integrate trackbacks, please let me know.
If I cannot get it integrated I may just have to create yet another feed for trackbacks.

Great! I'll check that out tonight!
I really like SharpReader and its ability to thread entries and comments. I am however having difficulty getting my entries to do it. Could you post the code for each of your feeds? It's probably really simple but I'm no XML expert. =]
Jay: the threading is simply based on item-descriptions that contain <a href="..."> tags pointing to the <link> or <guid> of another item. If you want a comments-feed that threads in SharpReader like mine does, all you need to do is make sure it links back to the original item.
You can create a comments-feed in Movable Type by using its <MTComments> tag to iterate over recent comments. Within you entries you can then use the snippet below to link back to the orginal item:
Let me know if you need any more information.
That was perfect Luke. Actually just as you posted that I figured out where it needed to go but was still working on the details. Thanks again!
