Micro.blog

@Smokey rightly pointed out that my "solution" to force enable comments on posts made via XML_RPC from the micro.blog apps was too draconian. Essentially it enabled comments on anything, regardless of how it was posted or updated, and was a quick and dirty workaround. It "worked" but no... colinwalker.blog

@colinwalker Works great for me; thanks so much! One less piece of friction when posting from the Micro.blog app!

@colinwalker I’ve just installed it and all seems fine so far.

@colinwalker favorited and will come back later to install and have a prod ... does this need other web mention plugins - or can this replace what I have?

@stefp Glad to hear it. Hopefully it will only trigger when desired and not interfere with anything else.

@JohnPhilpin This relates to native comments, not webmentions. For some reason posts made via the m.b apps do not have comments enabled if that is the default setting on WordPress.

@colinwalker I checked my own setup, and it's the same. I may add your plugin. Though most of the comments I get come from Micro.blog.

@colinwalker Is this needed if people are replying on MB to an MB post that comes from a RSS feed?

So: post on WP -> goes to MB via RSS feed -> person replies on MB -> reply appears on WP site

@simonwoods Replies on MB shouldn’t be affected as they are sent via webmention and, in my experience, webmentions go through okay even if comments are closed.

@colinwalker OK sounds good, thanks. 👍 I'll wait to see if everything is working as and when I get replies since that seems to be the easiest way to identify problems.
