I am using Atahualpa 3.6.4/WordPress 3.1.

I tried all 3 things -
%trackback%
%trackback-linked('linktext')%
%trackback-rdf%

to get trackbacks listed at the bottom of a single post, however the listing when it shows up does not show the text or URL of the other website which is linking into mine.
It shows the same URL of my post.
I tried reading through the forum with no help.

Any thoughts ?

A trackback IS the link to your post not the link to sites linking to your post.
Here is a write up about trackbacks http://www.optiniche.com/blog/117/wo...back-tutorial/

@sradhey... If it worked the way you were thinking can you imagine what would happen if 100 sites linked to your post? I would become very unmanageable. Trackbacks are a way to give people easy access to the link to a post.
