Since I set up Webmentions in January 2018 using Webmention.io, I've been starting to receive more interactions with my site across the social web.However, up until today, the only way I'd be able to see what Webmentions I'd received was to go and actively check. I'd, many times a day, open Indigeno…

That’s a lovely idea. I’m personally using Telegram’s Bot API which is quite powerful!

I just added a little form in the webmentions section on the posts so you can send your webmention manually if it didn’t hit my website. Or, you can also use the button ‘Write a comment’ to create a comment (that can be anonymous) through the comment parade service.

For the curious ones out there, the code is simple. Please remember that I’m using Go templates with Hugo:

<form action="https://webmention.io/hacdias.com/webmention" method="post">
  <input name="source" placeholder="Have you written a response? Paste its URL here!" type="url" required>
  <input name="target" value="{{ .Permalink }}" type="hidden">
  <input value="Send Webmention" type="submit">

<form method="get" action="https://quill.p3k.io/" target="_blank">
  <input type="hidden" name="dontask" value="1">
  <input type="hidden" name="me" value="https://commentpara.de/">
  <input type="hidden" name="reply" value="{{ .Permalink }}">
  <input type="submit" value="Write a comment">

On a lot of IndieWeb sites, I noticed that profile images of webmentions get directly embedded from their original source. For example, Twitter profile images are loaded directly from Twitter servers (pbs.twimg.com) or even my profile image is directly embedded from my site. However you should consi…

This is actually the next thing I want to “fix”. Other problem of twitter is that, if the user changes the profile picture, the previous one gets unavailable. For webmentions, I’m using the images provided by webmention.io, but for replies, likes and reposts context, I’m using the original source and I don’t like it.

I already ponderated to remove the images at all from the contexts, but I don’t think it would look as friendly as it does now. What do you think?

Oopsie doopsie. Just found a bug on my webmention endpoint where I was not writing the webmentions to the correct endpoint. Right now, I’m storing them as plain webmentions from webmention.io. Probably I should think about a simpler way to store them to parse them easily later on the theme.

Right now I have an index that tells, for each permalink on my blog, which likes and “others” it has. I show the likes as mere “heads” on the post and then the “others” that might be reposts or retweets. The truth is that any of those can contain content.

What do I need to store? That’s the important question.
