We’ve previously enabled our site to receive Webmentions, but what can we do about sending Webmentions to other sites? Much like we use Webmention.io to handle receiving Webmentions, we’re going to use Webmention.app to handle the sending. And the best bit is, we don’t need to make any modifications to our site!
a new article to #IndieWeb TextPattern which covers integrating with Remy’s new Webmention.app service to enable sending of Webmentions for sites which don’t have that capability natively.
I just spent 5-10 minutes getting Webmentions working on
IndieWeb Textpattern (receiving only, for now). It was super simple, thanks to Webmention.io and this script from PlaidWeb. Check out an example. I’m hoping to have the guide for this written up in the next day or two, as time allows.
I’m having a weird time with the
WordPress Webmentions plugin right now, where it only seems to send a webmention when I update a post after the initial inclusion of the mention. So: add mention (a href link) to the post > update/publish > update a second time.
Until I figure out what’s going on there’s no way to be sure it’s the plugin that’s the having the issue, or something in my particular setup. Once I can figure that out I’ll know whether to open an issue on GitHub or not.
Something else to add to the ever-growing todo list ?
