I always refer to things like games week and pax as "mountaintop experiences" they're liminal spaces, set apart from our normal lives.

So far my experience getting a consistent experience with IndieWeb on WordPress has been frustrating. I think some of the documentation for Bridgy needs some updating (Google+), and there are some quirks in the Webmentions

[chrisaldrich]: snarfed left you a message 3 days, 3 hours ago: re bridgy fed + url paths + atom...i honestly don't know. :P bridgy fed currently federates responses, but not (really) accounts or posts. obviously a big whole in the broader UX of making indieweb interact w/fedsocnets!

webmention comment replies for WordPress are great.
#
[miklb]
I posted a note, got a webmention reply via micro.blog, was able to reply with the native WordPress comment reply & it shows up on micro.blog
[chrisaldrich] joined the channel
#
[chrisaldrich]
I thought I saw something like that the other day on someone's site, but wasn't sure that it wasn't manually POSSEd...
#
[miklb]
yep. threaded reply on my site via comment form, backfeeds as a reply to micro.blog
#
[chrisaldrich]
I noticed a while back that replies to my posts from Known that are also syndicated to other services (say twitter for example), pull in the webmention reply, but also show they syndicated tweet in the UI as well.
#
[chrisaldrich]
It feels like in about 5 minutes that WordPress will have full salmention support.... ?
#
[miklb]
I’m not sure micro.blog is considered a syndication target since it just picks up a feed
#
[chrisaldrich]
Does that same functionality you saw work for Twitter as well? Or did it require any configuration with micro.blog?
#
[miklb]
right now I don’t think brid.gy would pick that up. I simply reply natively in Twitter since my replies also backfeed as comments
#
[chrisaldrich]
how does micro.blog pick up your replies though? comments rss feed?
#
[miklb]
no configuration. This is just webmentions
#
[miklb]
there is a comment reply webmention plugin
#
[chrisaldrich]
apparently I've been asleep at the wheel and missed that one. Where is it hiding?
#
[miklb]
so here https://miklb.com/2017/11/2628/ the micro.blog reply came in as a webmention, I replied using the native comment form and it backfeeds to https://micro.blog/eli/181926

I would eventually love to be able to reply to a tweet reply natively in WordPress
#
[chrisaldrich]
I suspect that that plugin might be able to tie into the Brid.gy publish plugin to do just that...
[eddie] joined the channel
#
[miklb]
in theory I agree. I haven’t looked at exactly where I would need to add it though
#
[chrisaldrich]
You'd just want a character counter to be able to watch the length, but one could probably adapt Peter Molnar's https://wordpress.org/plugins/character-count-for-post-content-excerpt/

#
[miklb]
yeah, I hacked a little counter into my excerpt field but it doesn’t take into account the nuances of how Twitter counts characters
iasai_ joined the channel

[chrisaldrich]
Peter's is fairly old, so it probably doesn't take those into account either...

petermolnar
about the reply-with-comment: I did that as well a while ago, with my alternative (now abandoned) wp webmention plugin, but I had a hard time trying to add permalinks per comment
#
petermolnar
I wonder what pfefferle did with that
snarfed joined the channel
#
[chrisaldrich]
I think that GWG added some additional fields for u-syndication as well as some parsing in the last year.
#
[chrisaldrich]
I know there was some discussion about permalinks for comments, but they didn't go anywhere (or were scrapped).
#
[miklb]
I think the issue is with pagination
#
GWG
What was the question?
#
Loqi
question is a post type for soliciting answer replies, which are then typically up/down voted by others and then displayed underneath the question post ordered by highest positive vote count rather than time ordered https://indieweb.org/question
#
[chrisaldrich]
One can target comments with #fragmention-esque URLs
#
petermolnar
[chrisaldrich] I have a few other plugins never pushed to the wp repo: https://github.com/petermolnar?utf8=%E2%9C%93&tab=repositories&q=wp&type=&language=

GWG
I added fragments and syndication.

We're just pulling in everyone this morning. Rub the magic lamp and see which genie appears.

[chrisaldrich]
miklb mentioned wordpress comment webmentions to micro.blog working a bit ago.

I wonder if colinwalker is aware of that functionality? I suspect he'd use it constantly if he did.

[colinwalker]
chrisaldrich I’ve had WordPress comments from my blog generate webmentions on micro.blog but there can be an issue: comments from others have shown as being from me. It’s all to do with recognising if they’re from a recognised user. I mentioned it to manton and he was going to look at whether they should all get sent or just those from a recognised user.

[manton]
colinwalker And do you have Microformats for the user comment? On first glance I'm not seeing how Micro.blog could tell who wrote the comment when it receives the Webmention.
#
[manton]
Or maybe the issue is just that it sees your domain name and matches that up. That's likely.
#
aaronpk
it looks like the comments are missing an h-card

iasai_ joined the channel
#
[colinwalker]
I’m using pfefferle’s Webmention for Comments plugin. aaronpk so, you think I should add h-cards to them? I can modify my template. manton maybe so.
#
aaronpk
yes definitely, if you're going to add microformats markup when showing comments, then the markup should be complete
#
[manton]
I've checked the Micro.blog code and I don't think it handles this case. It isn't expecting a comment on a web page that has other comments, it's expecting more of a personal site with a new post that is a reply back.

#
aaronpk
here's a recommendation for how to mark up comments https://indieweb.org/comments#How_to_markup
#
[manton]
In the ping, are you sending your post URL with a "#comment_id" at the end to point to the individual comment? And do other tools handle this?
#
[colinwalker]
?‍♂️ whatever WordPress and the plugins do by default.
#
[colinwalker]
aaronpk I see the problem, the markup really isn’t clear and doesn’t differentiate.
#
[colinwalker]
I never used to have native comments enabled when adding Indieweb functionality so am finding various things that need fixing.
snarfed joined the channel
#
[manton]
Yeah, it's not clear to me what to do in this case... Seems like I'd have to look at `#comment-id` in the URL and find the specific comment in the HTML. Right now it assumes there's one post on the page, not multiple comments.

Which in a web browser redirects, but I think when downloaded by an app, only shows the single post. That explains why the text is coming through correctly, just not the user.

[manton]
Good news: those special "replytocome" URLs _do_ have a p-author and h-card.
#
[colinwalker]
There is only my h-card on the page though.
treora joined the channel
#
[manton]
Actually no, WordPress is being clever here. If you download the source of that page with curl or something that isn't a web browser, it produces different HTML, and the h-card is on the comment author.
#
[colinwalker]
Clever! But it won’t hurt for me to do it properly ?
#
[manton]
Cool. I'll make some tweaks on the Micro.blog side to handle this case better. Thanks!
#
[colinwalker]
Nice thanks. And thanks aaronpk
#
aaronpk
oh wow

GWG
I tried to do comment permalinks with an actual template in the theme. I should reconsider that as a special plugin

aaronpk
yes, i broke the feed yesterday by using a relative URL for the mp3 file. but it's fixed now.

aaronpk
also I hadn't realized the unique ID field wasn't being set so I set that and i think some clients are treating them as new posts.
