Blast from the past For years I've had

2022-11-23 00:15:03.537805+01 by Dan Lyke 5 comments

Blast from the past! For years I've had an "if anyone uses webmentions, contact me" on my web page, and someone just did. And the code still works. A little susceptible to spam, but daaang.

And as I looked through the code to try to figure out what this was all about, I'm starting to think okay, maybe ActivityPub after all.

Now I just need to finish webmention on my end.

I'm not sure if this is a bug on your end or not, but if I'm not logged in, I don't see the webmentions (for instance, using curl). But if I am, I do see them (say, using Firefix).

Interesting. I probably did something silly like wrapped them in the block that shows the comments or something... I'll try to dig into that.

I just tried, Lynx is giving me the webmentions. curl is giving me a certificate error that I do not understand (it's claiming an expired certificate, Certbot assures me it's valid to February of next year), so I had to use -k, but that's showing me the webmentions too.

Huh ... it's showing up now. Perhaps it was an ID10T error, or perhaps a PEPKAC error.

Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer.
