In Word­Press the track­back links often cause user con­fu­sion. Knowl­edge­able users right-​​click on the link and copy the link loca­tion. But the vast major­ity of users click the link — expect­ing to copy the link from the browser’s loca­tion bar —  only to be redi­rected back to the very page they were on. The stan­dard imple­men­ta­tion does not pro­vide the expected result.

wp-​​TrackbackPopup resolves this issue. It uses unob­tru­sive JavaScript to cause a popup win­dow when a user clicks the track­back link. The popup pro­vides a text ver­sion of the track­back URL for easy copy­ing and pasting.
