Bookmarked Indieweb Webmentions on Middleman or Jekyll by Evan TraversEvan Travers (
Recently, @ttscoff asked a little bit about how I’m including twitter replies to a blog post on my site. I like building and hacking on stuff on my site… so one of my experiments is “joining the indieweb.” There isn’t a right way to implement this stuff… one of the beautiful and bewilde...

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but a while back I added a nifty feature to posts on this site which displays activity from Twitter and Mastodon (likes, retweets, replies) on each post. In most cases, more responses to my work happen on social media...
Be careful, because Webmention also means you’ll get responses from other websites too! Congratulations and welcome to the new world. I’ve added a link to your article to the IndieWeb Jekyll page which has some other useful resources too.

I think? If you know how to send a Webmention, please do so that I know it works!
Congratulations on getting things up and running! Hopefully it wasn’t too complicated, though we could always use help as a community in making the UI and details easier. I know that David Shanske has been working on making a new pass to integrate Semantic Linkbacks into the Webmention plugin so that there’s only one plugin instead of two.

As you get more reactions via Webmention (especially if you connect to get responses back to your website via Webmentions from Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, Github, and Mastodon if you use them), you’ll likely want Semantic Linkbacks to facepile the smaller bits like favorites, bookmarks, likes, reads, etc. (I facepile all webmentions on my own site except for replies.)

You should be able to find the Semantic Linkbacks Settings in /wp-admin/options-discussion.php.

There’s definitely a Webmention plugin for Craft which was written by Matthias Ott, but it’s only compatible with v2 and not v3.

There’s an IndieWeb stub page for Statamic, but no examples of usage yet.

I’m curious to hear what you think of them after playing a bit.

I’ve installed the IndieWeb plugin as well as its companions, Webmention and Semantic-Linkbacks.
The IndieWeb plugin adds a few semantic things to the user profile in WordPress and acts as a launch platform for ...
Hooray! Congratulations!
Read webmentions and microsub (

This phlog is about web stuff. Specifically it's about Indyweb things and microformats.

I use my website as an IndieAuth [0] portal. When logging into sites that understand the IndieWeb concept, I provide my "Home" URL as an identifier. Then the site scrubs through all the various links I have on that page and picks out those that it can understand for authentication. In most cases I get GPG and GitHub hits, though occasionally a site will support more. I oAuth in, and bam... identified. It's pretty neat and requires very little effort on my side.

IndieWeb with Gopher. Not sure if this will send a Webmention correctly though…

James Tomasino wrote about his experience with implementing Webmentions on his Gopher blog.

To bridge my webmention from HTTP to Gopher, I'm web-mentioning his post through the Floodgap Gopher proxy. If you're using Lynx or another Gopher-capable browser, open his post here: gopher://

Op Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Mastodon en LinkedIn is het vrij normaal om andere gebruikers te vermelden door hun accountnaam in je update te noemen. Groot gemaakt door Twitter is de @-mention nu een bekend fenomeen op het web. De netwerken zijn zo slim om deze gebruiker een notificatie te sturen...

Some of the off-label uses of have been enumerated lately, including some I’ve mentioned.

I’ve tinkered a bit with CROWDLAAERS, but it’s always seemed to me geared toward a very niche audience including teachers potentially using it for grading? Perhaps I’m missing some more of its flexibility? Remi Kalir might be able to help elucidate it or indicate if he’s noticed anyone using it for off-label usage.

I might see it being more useful if one could analyze site-wide annotations on a domain with a wild-card search of this sort:*.

I have to imagine that it would be cool to see all the annotations and conversations across something like the New York Times with a data visualization tool like this.

Jon Udell and gang are aware of Webmention, but haven’t pulled the trigger (yet) on making the decision to build them in. I’ve outlined some methods for making their platform a bit more IndieWeb friendly by adding markup and some additional HTML to allow people to force the system to be able to send webmentions. I do frequently use Jon’s facet tool to check highlighting and annotation activity on my website.

I have found Crowdlaaers useful several times in that I’m aware that some pages are annotated, but they’re either not public or are part of other groups for which I’m not a member. An example of this is this page on my website which has one annotation which I can’t see, but by using Crowdlaaers, I can. Another example is viewing annotations on sites that have subsequently blocked like this example. Of course, sometimes you’ll do this and find odd bugs floating around in the system.

There’s a few quick ways depending on your needs:

  • If you’re using the Webmention plugin, it will happen automatically on publish. (If you’re also using it to receive, then I highly recommend using Semantic Linkbacks as well.)
  • For quick “manual” webmentions you can use Aaron Parecki’s Telegraph or Kevin Marks’ Mention Tech. Just input your source URL that has a link to a target URL and the services will send the Webmention on your behalf.
  • Some sites that receive them will have boxes you can put your URL response in them and click a send button. (See mine below.)

I also maintain a collection for most of my WordPress IndieWeb-based research, which may answer additional questions or go into more depth. Hopefully the above three can get you started quickly though.

My IndieWeb setup is continuing to evolve. I just added support for syndication (this post should appear on IndieNews) and JSON-posting to my Hugo backend and theme.
Congratulations! I’m sure you’ve found lots of documentation, but keep in mind that is built on Hugo. If it helps I noticed that Steve Layton wrote a piece the other day about adding Webmention to with lots of code and details. It looks like you may have some of that already, but seeing the previously worn paths and knowing where to turn can help a lot!
