I’m experimenting with Webmentions and Semantic Linkbacks, at Chris Aldrich’s suggestion. Theoretically, if you reply to this post on micro.blog, the reply will aggregate to kfitz.info. Assuming I have things properly configured, which is no small assumption.

  1. @kfitz Interesting! I thought about that, but decided that I want to deal with responses only here. Not on blog.ayjay.org, where comments are not enabled, and not on Twitter, which I don’t look at. I’m eager to see whether this becomes a place for conversation.

  2. @ayjay It makes total sense not to aggregate replies if comments aren’t enabled. I’ve been frustrated since the birth of Twitter/FB that discussion of posts gets carried off into those spaces, making the blog less a space of conversation than it once was.

  3. @kfitz Hooray! Looks like you’ve got it up and running. Keep in mind that you can allow comments but moderate them all before they appear on your site.

    Keep in mind that in addition to comments coming back from micro.blog, you’ll also be able to receive reactions from other stand-alone websites that send webmentions.

  4. @kfitz The setting(s) for this are typically found at kfitz.info/wp-admin/… under “Other comment settings” or with the checkboxes in the “Discussion” meta-box in the administrative UI when editing a particular post. (If necessary, you might have to click on the “Screen Options” tab in the upper right of your dashboard while editing a post to make sure the meta-box for Discussion is checked to make sure it appears in your editor.)
