Replied to Really Simple Syndication by an authoran author ( )
Vanaf begin dit jaar ben ik RSS weer aan het afstoffen. ... Netvibes weer eens bekeken en 99% van alle rss feeds werkten niet meer. ... Ik ben blij met mijn hervonden feed (die potentieel het hele internet bestrijkt). En als je nog mooie, bijzondere mensen met een site kent. Ik hoor het graag.

Naast RSS heb je, las ik bij Frank, ook Webmention aan dus schrijf ik een reactie vanaf mijn eigen blog. Ik heb 3 jaar geleden toen ik weer vaker ging bloggen en FB achter me liet, mijn feedreader leeg gegooid en opnieuw langzaam gevuld. Ik lees wat mensen schrijven (geen ‘bronnen’) en orden feeds op basis van mijn gevoelde sociale afstand tot hen. De aloude blogrol heb ik ook weer terug, nu in de vorm van een mens- en machineleesbare OPML file, die je in de meeste rss readers kunt importeren om te zien of er schrijvende mensen tussen zitten van je gading.

Peter asked me if it is possible to change my RSS feed for my comments. Right now it contains any reaction, which come in the form of webmentions, likes, reposts, as well as actual replies and comments. Essentially it is currently not a comment feed, but a reaction feed. As part of my site tweaks I will see if I can turn it into a real comment feed (that includes webmentions that are replies), and how to change the way some things are displayed (I had that but it got overwritten by plugin updates).

For now I have renamed the comment feed, so new subscribers have the right expectations.

I think? If you know how to send a Webmention, please do so that I know it works!....I’ll need to do some spelunking to figure out how I want to display and style them

Welcome to using WebMention, Jeremy. Still figuring out how to best use it myself with regard to how they get displayed on my site.

Like you I use WordPress, and I would love for mentions to display more like the old pingbacks, where you’d get a snippet from the mentioning site from around where it links to you. Now it mostly is ‘site x mentioned this.’ which makes me click to get a notion if it’s relevant.

On Webmention tweaks I documented some of the things I tried. The issue is that because the tweaks are in the Semantic Linkbacks plugin, not in the WP theme, you can only make those tweaks a permanent option if it gets rolled into the plugin (no such things as a child-plugin like with themes). And I’m not confident enough of my changes to figure out and try submitting them to the maintainers of the plugin.

This is a second test, to figure out a potential Webmention issue.

Sending a regular webmention to Frank’s posting on testing webmentions.

Sending an in-reply-to webmention to Frank’s posting on rebuilding webmentions.

If this doesn’t work well, I will do another test where my posting has a title and slug. I seem to remember that postings without title have caused issues with mentions before.
