It need to be a proper link to the domain. And mention is linking to a profile page on the pod, so it doesn’t validate.
Yarns does not generate a link back to the site that is being mentioned (eg.
<a href="http://darch.dk/social">look here</a>) which is needed for validating that it is indeed a real webmention, ant not just spam. Try rereading the specs😉
So this was right all along: #1156 - Webmention: a source doesn’t mention the target - yarn - Mills
@email@example.com it does not😢
yarnd... What would a single-user mode pod look like?
@firstname.lastname@example.org i am, but closed open registration long along, so don’t think anyone uses neotxt besides me. And with Twtxt-php/timeline I’m getting closer to pulling the plug now I got a working alternative.
@email@example.com thank you, but does it only work between yarnd pods or also to endpoints like https://webmention.io and does it it detect that I declared such an endpoint on darch.dk when someone mentions @firstname.lastname@example.org ?
@prologic So I had a look at the yarnd source code, but can’t say that I’m much wiser on how it send out webmention or how to send them to a yarnd pod. Can you break it down?
@prologic To outline what is needed for implementing webmetnion in a twtxt-webapp like twtxt-php/timeline or yarnd
@email@example.com cool, how you you like it? (And sh!t now I have to make sure it works, not just for me;)
But I manged to send myself a webmetion using
curl -i -d "source=http://algorave.dk&target=http://darch.dk" https://webmention.io/darch.dk/webmention since I got a link on algorave.dk to darch.dk
@firstname.lastname@example.org is there a feature flag to add for webmention support or how does it work?
I excepted if I mentioned my feed on darch.dk @email@example.com then it would send a webmention to that domain, but where is the link on the yarn pod, that confirms the mention?
EDIT: I found this 7 months old issue: #1156 - Webmention: a source doesn’t mention the target - yarn - Mills
@firstname.lastname@example.org hmm yeah, also not sure how this should work for multi-user pods. It should only trigger an email when it show that they do not follow you and, it should not be an automatic one. If spam becomes an issue you could use a forward email address for this feature.
@email@example.com I’m also on the e-mail wagon here. On http://darch.dk/timeline/conv/oe3howa I have added a “Comment via email” botten if uses are not logged in. This feature could be extend to other places in the various UIs. Like we already got the “Does not follow your” / “Follow you” on the profile page in yarnd, so this detection could be used to sugget the user to email that person, when mentioning them.
