TrackBacks are comments. They are comments left on someone else’s site rather than your own, but they are comments nonetheless. Movable Type makes a distinction between entry comments and TrackBacks that seems artificial, and it makes more sense to have TrackBack ping data appear within the comments portion of a Movable Type site. SimpleComments is a plugin that will let you do just this. But what if you want to use SimpleComments tags with MovableType’s new dynamic publishing engine? Perl plugins won’t work. You need PHP SimpleComments.
PHP SimpleComments is intended as a companion for existing installations of Adam Kalsey’s SimpleComments. With PHP SimpleComments installed, you can switch templates from static publishing to dynamic publishing without losing the ability to use SimpleComments tags.
PHP SimpleComments duplicates the behavior of all the SimpleComments tags in PHP. If you already use SimpleComments on your weblog, then all you need to do is install the plugin files alongside your existing installation (see Installation instructions below). If you’re not already familiar with SimpleComments, you can find an explanation of what SimpleComments does, documentations of the SimpleComments tags, and a copy of the plugin in Perl for download at Kalsey’s SimpleComments project page
