@colinwalker thank Colin, I think I do that. I’ll be checking and tweaking. Got a lot from this wee thread tonight thanks to you and @cn

@johnjohnston I was referring to Colin’s comments on my site, I haven’t been checking beyond the app this evening :o)

@johnjohnston I get the odd occasion when I have to moderate comments but don’t have mentions go to spam any more. You could also try this to whitelist mentions.

@cn @colinwalker some, even one of my own, went to spam. I pre approved webmentions, but as these are comments... I wonder if I Colin’s plugin will add webmentions before I pre approve webmentions, or I can pre approve comments from micro.blog.

@colinwalker I think it’s a couple of your replies that are absent from the public comments / @johnjohnston

@johnjohnston @cn It’s also why I wrote a quick function to re-add the webmention type to replies in the database so that I could check against it more easily.

@johnjohnston @cn A standard “mention” comes through as a webmention, also Likes, Bookmarks. If you get a reply via webmention it is automatically converted to a normal WordPress comment.

@cn I don’t really understand exactly how the comments come from microblog to my WordPress. They are not listed in the dashboard as webmentions but as comments. I do get webmentions from other blogs, but those can be strange.

@johnjohnston implying WordPress receives them happily from Micro.blog; I’ll have to scour my database for evidence of mentions I have emails for… schema differences have impaired functionality before 👾

@cn yes, I’ve seen a fair amount of weirdness. For webmentions to work both ends need to do the right thing. I am certainly in the hands of developers. If stars align the result will be lovely. Micro.blog has made this interaction easy & posted all the comments to my blog.

@johnjohnston my Known install misbehaved a little for a thread I started; I got emails about the webmentions, but their absence from the comments makes me suspect a misconfiguration

@cn of course there are still some gaps which it would be nice to fill.

@cn That is the choice? I might want to re to someone on their blog but not share in micro.blog. I might want to have a conversation in micro.blog but have it on my blog too (like this one), or I might want to re with a webmention to share wider or share my though.

@johnjohnston had I replied on my blog my reply would not have appeared here.

@cn I am now thinking of this as a choice. Where do I want the conversations to take place and appear? That is not to say that I am sometimes surprised, but I think I am beginning to get a handle on things.

@johnjohnston reply appearance may still be inconsistent; if one replies in any one place it may not show elsewhere :o]

Replying on Micro.blog is a bit like being able to comment on someone’s site from your RSS reader. It is nice to have so many ways & places to chat.
Comment directly.
Via micro.blog.
On own site via webmentions when you want to own your thought or add it to another bubble.
