@bradenslen Hey, coding not required, by thee or me. We've got LOTS of people around here who can do that stuff. As a talented explorer, you have a clear idea of where you'd like to get and when you get there, maybe you'll be able to help boost me up that last rocky path to the summit. And along the way, maybe we're gonna have a fun ride, whether we reach the very top or not.
@bradenslen I recently added webmentions to my simply.micro blog which does use Wordpress and it was easy. After researching how to implement webmentions for 2 other non-Wordpress blogs, I simply have to agree with you. Unless you're using Wordpress, the idea of implementing webmentions seems too challenging for most bloggers. (including static-site blogs). Just like anything else in tech, a little inter-operability needs to be present in webmentions. Of course, I'm using an old legacy version of Moveabletype on those other blogs so I'm not surprised that it's not included on the list of plugins available at indieweb.org/Webmentio...
@bradenslen Absolutely 100% important to remember!! I've been here since the Kickstarter and have seen tons of new features added. Manton kindly added the Archive feature to my blog. None of the other features have been implemented, because I have not taken the time to try to wrap my wits around all the suggestions. Yet I have actively participated in the community with my writing. I'd rather spend my time writing, rather than trying to figure out how to get the fancy stuff working. But if the platform is ever to expand beyond its very narrow focus of the technically agile folks in the Apple world, it will need to be very easy to use for the average person on the web . . . much easier than it is now.
