Hey IndieWeb developers! We recently added an
important feature to the Webmention spec:
If you maintain webmention code or have an IndieWeb site that sends webmentions,
please add this! It should be just a few lines of code;
here’s an example.
Originally, web sites could advertise their webmention endpoint in the
HTTP header or in a
<link rel="webmention"> HTML tag. This change adds the
option to use
<a rel="webmention"> too. This is useful on hosts that don’t
allow custom HTTP headers or
This change was inspired by a big new Bridgy feature:
webmention support for Blogger, Tumblr, and WordPress.com. (More about that
soon!) Blogger and Tumblr let you add
<link> tags, but WordPress.com doesn’t,
so we needed this to close the loop there.
