    Syahir, I know you added the link from your personal blog to my video (thank you). In my admin panel, I have these two items:

    And on my page, It says I have one pingback, but there is no comment. Would you take a second to explain this to me please? (or Ken)

    Do YOU have any control over how it shows in MY admin panel? Does it just show this way when someone uses a link into my domain (taking the first couple words or soemthing)?

    Thanks for any info.

    That is correct. A pingback is a separate type of comment. There’s another type of comment called “trackback”, which is kinda similar to a “pingback” but an older version of it. “Comment” is only for comments that visitors enter directly into your website.

    No control whatsoever. It just takes an excerpt out of the post near where the link is included, I think.
