That’s an interesting approach to add the Bridgy Publish webmention. I’m glad it’s working well for you.
My approach is still part of the template files. I just reviewed it and it’s fairly simple, so I’m comfortable sharing it. Here is a gist. Let me know if you have any questions.
I’m excited to see more ProcessWire sites with webmention. I’ve not heard from a lot of people using the module yet. I’m definitely interested in improving the indieweb experience on ProcessWire. Bridgy Publish is an area that I have not worked on yet, partly because people can have templates set up a variety of ways and I’m not sure how to make a plugin that works with different setups.
By the way, we’ve been having weekly virtual indieweb meetups if you’d like to join. I think the closest timezone would be the London meetup. Check out events.indieweb.org for upcoming events. We have an active community chat as well: indieweb.org/discuss.
I’ve used a variety of approaches over the years, from manual to semi-automatic. Here’s some different things I’ve done:
Initially I would publish a note, then use the interactive Bridgy Publish form from my account page. Your account page is https://brid.gy/twitter/isellsoap. Paste the URL of your note there, choose the options whether you want your original link appended to the tweet, then preview it. If it looks good, publish it. I then would copy the tweet’s URL and add it on my original note as a syndication link. See below on this note for an example of that syndication link.
After I did that for a while and it was working smoothly, I started to automate it more. Bridgy Publish lets you send a webmention to trigger the publish. I set up a custom bit of PHP code that would let me click a button to send off that webmention for the note I wanted to publish. Sending a webmention is a pretty simple POST request, so I used the WireHTTP class for that. When publishing to Twitter, the successful Bridgy response includes the Twitter API data for the tweet. I wrote some more code that processes that response to get the tweet’s URL and updates the syndication link on the note.
Note that all of this is separate from the Webmention plugin itself. The code for my semi-automatic publishing isn’t part of a plugin and isn’t very polished code, so I haven’t released any of it. If I can find a way to make it more user-friendly, I might release it, or at least write a tutorial with more guidance.
https://php.microformats.io is a useful tool to debug the microformats in your posts, by the way. Here’s the parsed result of this very note. The
in-reply-to property is what Bridgy Publish uses to post a reply tweet. The
syndication property is one way Bridgy maps your original post to the Twitter copy for sending responses back to you — particularly if you don’t include your original post link in the tweet.
I am proposing a session for IndieWebCamp West Coast: “Keeping Track of Books and Reading Progress.”
I would like to discuss the use-cases and experiences of using our websites to:
- track books we want to read
- categorize (or “shelve”) books
- track reading progress
Most of my personal experience has been around tracking books I want to read. It is probably more accurate to classify those as want posts instead of read posts. I’d like to discuss the differences between these three types of posts and what they look like on our sites. Regarding categorizing books, we should also discuss Library JSON.
This session is broader than indiebookclub but will likely have an impact on it. indiebookclub creates posts with a status of to-read, reading, or finished. The first is probably a want post and the others seem to be reading progress posts.
@sonicrocketman: I noticed I wasn’t seeing your feed in Monocle. It looks like your jsonfeed doesn’t validate: https://validator.jsonfeed.org/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fpine.blog%2Fu%2Fsonicrocketman%2Ffeed.json
I subscribed to your microformats feed and that’s working smoothly!
https://paper.li/ still exists. If you use it, please don't have it auto-tweet them though. XD

Want to watch Give Me Sex Jesus
What happens when a generation of Christian youth pledge sexual abstinence until marriage? Since the 1990s, the Purity Movement has been at the center of the national sexual conversation extending past the pew and all the way into the Oval Office. Including some of the leading experts on Evangelicalism today, Give Me Sex Jesus invites you into the guilt, pleasure, shame, and humor of sorting out faith and sex in America.
“save myself from the mob of cancel culture” does not read as a good faith interpretation of the reactions you received.
