@kicks Ahh, I do keep forgetting about Webmention.io. Thanks for reminding me. I wonder if their codes will work in the footer on MB, do you know? They just say "in your HTML". Hrrm. This would help on incoming webmentions to be sure.
I'll look into importing the archive of interactions. I appreciate your offer of help because I'm pretty far out on the limb in regards to my competency. :-)
Glad the links are not broken! That was a big factor in my deciding to move to Micro.blog. Those incoming links are important. Micro.blog seems to have a good mapping program - no matter what the URL was and what it has changed to, the click gets to the right post.
Thanks again. More later.
@kicks Okay, I added the Webmention.io codes to the footer on Micro.blog. I don't really have ready access to the header space. We'll see if this works and if the codes will work from the footer. It takes Micro.blog some time to update changes so I'm just going to let things set for a bit while that footer updates.
@kicks I've removed the Webmention.io code from the footer.
First I'm going to see if I can get a third party comment system installed and running. On most of these third party commenters ( Disqus et al.) they have Wizards for most major platforms. But when you get into obscure stuff like MB and have to use the generic code snippet the instructions become less clear. So we will see if it works.
Can I ask a favor, will a couple of you please comment on two different posts to test out the system and to see if it is distingushing between posts? Thanks! Let me know if you encounter problems.
And it all just worked like the screencast showed. So it's a very neat custom theme system Micro.blog has even for just editing the stock themes.
