Well, I guess I got so excited that I replied to the wrong note. But I think you must have received my original webmention, right? In the wrong note? What happens if I fix it now after it has been sent? Time to find out!

Hey, it worked! Good job!

In my case, I’ve switched to JSON for the metadata in my notes. Along with the url, I have an author field to display it in the note:

    "reply_to" : {
        "url": "https://blog.libove.org/posts/1662922088-reply-to-leveling-up-my-indieweb-game/",
        "author": "Niko"

I’ve also noted that I received the publish time from your webmention in UTC, but my blog fails to make the conversion to my local timezone. So I guess all webmentions in this site are displayed in whatever timezone they originated, which may make it a bit confusing if, for instance, a reply has a timestamp earlier than the post it’s replying to. I’ll have to make sure all times are displayed in the same time zone going forward! Something else to add to the to-do list!

Thanks for helping me test all of this, Niko!

Edit: changed the reply_to in the metadata to point to the correct note in your blog. Let’s see what happens when I change the markup after the webmention has been sent!

Nothing like a Monday morning coding session. I received a repost which prompted me to add to the types of webmentions I display under notes and blog posts. Now I’m ready for the week ahead!

Hey, I received your webmention! But webmention.io (the service I use to process the webmentions) didn’t find your name in your markup, I guess.

Thank you for your encouragement about the way I display webmentions! And the fact that yours came through without an author will help me better deal with that edge case.

And certainly, reducing the friction in publishing is my main goal with implementing micropub! Though I’m still a long way from even starting working on that.

Thanks for the comment, fellow Christian!

I wasn’t familiar with Wouter Groenevald’s article, but now I have bookmarked. It’s full of good stuff! But, like you, I feel comfortable with the webmentions being rendered server-side when the site is build. This is not Twitter, after all. They can wait.

I’m also looking forward to start implementing micropub. I’ll document as I go along. I’ll keep an eye on your progress, too!

And now trying to figure out if I can reply to notes from my site using Webmentions.
