Keeping track of backlinks in Drupal 6

Parent Feed: 

A few posts back, I wrote about creating a list of articles that link to some other article, i.e. a list of "backlinks". That post back then was focused on Drupal 7.

I'm a bit shocked though, that nobody noticed or mentioned that this feature already exists in Drupal 6. I had no idea either. So this heads up here is to make things right.

When you have the core Search module enabled and have Views installed and enabled, you should get a default view called "backlinks".

Sorry for my bad researching skills!

About Drupal Sun

Drupal Sun is an Evolving Web project. It allows you to:

  • Do full-text search on all the articles in Drupal Planet (thanks to Apache Solr)
  • Facet based on tags, author, or feed
  • Flip through articles quickly (with j/k or arrow keys) to find what you're interested in
  • View the entire article text inline, or in the context of the site where it was created
