So sad to see that Thich Nhat Hanh, the 'father of mindfulness', has passed. 🧘♂️🙏
I spent some time last night, and into the early hours, improving the webmention experience within (b)log-In.
Inspired by the plugin for WordPress, I have provided a means to manually trigger a webmention for those who do not have the ability to send one from their site.
Visiting the webmention endpoint directly will now show a form when no source or target URL are passed to it:
It is then a simple matter of pasting in those links and hitting 'Send'.
Under each comment form there is now a link to send a webmention, this takes you to the endpoint form with the permalink of that post filled in as the target URL:
Just paste in the URL of the post that mentions it and hit 'Send' — nice and easy.
I need to make further tweaks to what is displayed upon submitting a mention 1 but it all works and is ready to be used.
especially if an error occurs like the target URL can't be found at the link provided ↩
