Getting “follow” webmentions from people adding me to their blogrolls is always fun. (Thanks Chaitanya!) It’s also a nice discovery feature reading through the lists of people I ought to consider following myself.

    1. It wasn’t the h-card so much as the link itself. The mention came to my homepage. I manually moved it to the followers page and changed the “type” to followed to get it to show up on that page.

      There aren’t many people sending or receiving these in a standard fashion yet, but we’ll get there. I actively make follow posts in an attempt to eventually help speed the way.

    1. You could write a follow post manually in any system and simply send a webmention. I modified the Post Kinds plugin a bit to enable follow posts. Plugins or modules could be made for other systems to make it simpler though.

      I think the Semantic Linkbacks plugin looks for the microformat u-follow-of on follow posts to automatically display them as a “follow”, otherwise you can use the comment UI in WordPress to edit a response and change the type manually, which is what I did in Chaitanya’s case.

      I also manually created a Followers page to collect the “follow” mentions.
