Reading up on Webmentions as a way of linking conversations between sites and apps. Bit confusing. Anyone using this?

Seems the Twitter API no longer cares if you already have the @-names in the tweet and adds them again: https://twitter.com/gRegorLove/status/845307170543587330
#
aaronpk
huh, i haven't had that happen yet

I sent through the first three names, it added the last two. It was in reply to jdragz

what is noindex
#
Loqi
Noindex is an instruction you put in a robots_txt file to designate a specific URL path on your domain that you do not want robots to index https://indieweb.org/Noindex
#
aaronpk
that would be more useful with an example
#
tantek
yep it's a stub
#
sknebel
does it make more sense to redirect all these to robots_txt (well, they are meta-tags as well, but..) and explain stuff there?
#
aaronpk
oh i forgot they are also meta tags
#
tantek
sknebel - since they are jargon terms which have specific definitions it helps to have separate pages that define them in particular
#
tantek
aaronpk: wait are disallow and allow also meta tags? (didn't think so but?)
#
aaronpk
noindex is, right?
#
tantek
I think so

tantek

anyone happen to know if you can use a relation other than `AND` or `OR` in a WP meta_query?

miklb: The Codex isn't well maintained anymore. Try https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/
#
GWG
According to this, still no
#
miklb
OK, so I was reading it right
#
miklb
wonders if that has been proposed already
#
GWG
miklb: What relation do you want?
#
miklb
everything but two different values for a single key. In this case, anything but likes & reposts. But I'm looking at how everything is stored to make sure I actually want what I want
#
GWG
You could search for tickets.
#
GWG
And file one
#
miklb
I was, but don't want to go down too far that rabbit whole, just going to leave that tab open to remind me
#
GWG
Okay.
#
miklb
ah, a reply through bridgy isn't stored as a webmention. Cool
#
miklb
GWG so only likes and reposts are stored as a webmention comment_type, correct?
#
GWG
No, everything but replies
#
GWG
I have been thinking about suggesting a change there.
#
miklb
oh, so if someone does a bookmark-of of your post, it would backfeed as a bookmark comment_type (as one example if I'm following)
#
miklb
ah, there it is `remove "webmention" comment-type if $type is "reply"`
#
miklb
just seems odd for that not to be a type of webmention comment_type. It's not a native WP reply
#
miklb
but semanticall…
