@hankchizljaw There's also @withknown & @WordPress which also have webmention support for site-to-site communication in addition to all the other #IndieWeb tech @keithjgrant mentioned. Next we just need the microsub solution widely distributed https:/
@A11YForAll @twynn92 @MarcoInEnglish I wrote a short introduction about Webmention last week for @alistapart:
@evertp After having gotten Webmention working, you might consider stopping by the IndieWeb chat to ask this question of folks like @aaronpk, @t, @kevinmarks, and others who might provide some guidance/suggestions. As a group, they've been able to shepherd 3 specs to W3C Recommendation in almost as many years. We could all use some help on so many different levels.
@cogdog I have a lot of email spammers talking about my site who can't spell CONVERSATIONS either. What's worse is that when I contact them, none have ever even heard of simple standards like Webmention.
@DavidWolfpaw There's https:/
Beyond this several of us have tests sites we could use to test things manually if necessary. Feel free to join us in chat for help and other ideas: https:/
@jgmac1106 A few short thoughts:
1. The explanatory text is nice, but runs a bit long for the uninitiated. I'm always worried that the length turns folks off? Perhaps something shorter for the gist of the idea with a link instead to a particular page that lays it out in more detail? I've also considered hiding some of the extra explanation behind a pop up or by using an abbr (or other appropriate html) tag with appropriate CSS hover markup so that when one hovers over a portion, they get a title-like window with all the gory details. Ideally, over time, with the spread of the concept the explanation won't be necessary at all.
2. One potentially crucial piece you're missing is that the post on their webpage HAS to have the permalink URL for your post on the page, otherwise the webmention will fail. Worse, without this bit of knowledge they won't know why it failed.
Thanks for your questions. Several of us took a stab at answering them in the IndieWeb wiki today. You can find the answers here: https:/
I recall you said you were in the IndieWeb Slack channel, so if you need more specifics or help, please don't hesitate to stop by and one or more folks there will be happy to help you out the best we can.
