One topic I asked about was the POSSE concept, and how that contrasts with people’s use of IRC. My observation was that some people do not post often on their site, but spend a lot of time talking with people on IRC. I thought that Aaron Parecki’s explanation of IRC as “quick communication” was good.
I have only been working on IndieWeb stuff for a few weeks, so some things (like IRC and Twitter) are still a little new to me. I’ll keep working on it, though!
I have created a short screencast below to show how to install and test the Webmention plugin for WordPress, feedback is welcome!
Thanks to Kartik Prahbu on the IndieWebCamp IRC channel for posting a webmention to one of my posts, I was able to see the comment in my moderation panel!
I did have a question about my testing, and I am adding this information to hopefully get some help from others.
Looking at my curl response, I wonder why it would have a 404 Not Found message even though I was able to see the webmention comment. Here is a screenshot:
Matt is working on testing webmentions, let’s see if this makes it back!
I then followed the instructions at https://indieauth.com/#documentation to allow users to sign into my website. To set this up, I added a Text widget with the following text:
After moving the widget to just below my Bio widget, it looks like this:
I then tested this with my domain (http://andysylvester.com). I saw that I was able to authenticate with one of my social network identities, but then I was directed to some other page that did not mean much to me:
I then clicked on the link within the page, but it took me to the IANA main site – ugh.
Finally, I installed the IndieAuth WordPress plugin and repeated the above steps from my form, and saw the same results. However, I saw a difference in my WordPress login page after activating the plugin:
I entered my domain and was able to authenticate, but then got a message that I did not have an account associated with that website. I will have to look more into this topic.
