Replied to This Website Supports Webmentions by Carl ColglazierCarl Colglazier (carlcolglazier.com)
Here’s a handy little feature I hacked together this weekend. Webmention is a W3C recommendation for a protocol to notify a URL when a website links to it. It reminds me of the Pingback feature I used in my Wordpress days. You can find a list of all the pages mentioning this under the “Mentions” heading below. If you would like to mention this page, there is also a form. Add this page as a link to your page, add it to the input, and click “Submit Webmention”. If everything goes right, your page should then be linked below.

Congratulations!!

💜 @macgenie and had the pleasure of sitting next to her @IndieWebSummit last year! Matthias Pfefferle (aka @pfefferle or same handle on m.b.) is one of my favorite IndieWeb resources and his German is far better than mine.
 
If you can give your micro.blog account an RSS, JSON, or other feed for your site, then eleventy should work fine with it.

I’m under the weather in LA attending IndieWeb Summit remotely today. There’s some good documentation, but ping me if you need help getting into the chat, finding streaming video, or accessing resources.

In my effort to become more involved in the IndieWed community I created indieweb.life and indieweb.social.  A lot of the information out there is either out-of-date or is written so far above the head of the complete novice.  A lot of it is geared towards developers and webmasters.  I wanted to create a place and space where a person with only a cursory knowledge could come and get simple, easy instructions and places to go for further guidance. I wanted to create a simple “get started” site with some simple up-to-date links and instructions on indieweb.life for people looking to get started with WordPress and the IndieWeb.  I also created the open Mastodon instance at indieweb.social for anyone who would like to join an instance focused on supporters and participants of the IndieWeb movement.  I would really like it if some of the more experienced veterans would be willing to critique the site and maybe contribute or syndicate some content that would help new seekers.  Also, if anyone would be willing to be an admin on indieweb.social then we can get listed on joinmastodon.org.

Welcome to the gang!

If it helps to have some company, I seem to recall Christophe Duchamp running a Mastodon instance for French-speaking IndieWeb users which he’s been documenting.

I know there are a handful of us interested in better documenting some IndieWeb pathways for those who are less technical. For a while I’ve been hacking away at some pieces particularly for WordPress at https://indieweb.org/User:Boffosocko.com/wordpress-draft. I’m sure you’ll run into many of the others as well.
