@ChrisJWilson Versioning is a great idea. It would also help serve as an extra backup when mistakes are accidentally published.
@strandlines Replies can come from external Webmentions even if the user doesn't have a Micro.blog account. (With some limitations, like they need a blog. It doesn't work with Brid.gy's tweet forwarding.)
@bix Aaron is posting to his own blog and sending a Webmention to Micro.blog, which adds his blog post into the conversation. Because he also has a Micro.blog account, it matches up his username, but it would work even if he didn't have a Micro.blog account.
@bix Just whatever the author sends. I think the display can be fixed in CSS to match Micro.blog replies that are wrapped in <p> tags.
@bix Nope, those are fine. What I mean is URLs that require more than the domain name. For example,
example.com/some/path/. Micro.blog is about 1 person, 1 domain name.
@Alcedine That's a good idea!
@bix @bradenslen It brings in Webmentions if they are part of the Micro.blog conversation, which is limited to mentions from external blogs that also have a domain name (so it excludes forwarded tweets and some other URLs).
@carlesbellver Thanks, that is strange… I can't reproduce it but I'll take another look.
@carlesbellver Thanks! For the truncation do you mean the ".Permalink" tag, or something else I'm not seeing? The permalink is a Hugo variable. For anyone not using Hugo, it should just be the full URL to your blog post.
@bix I hadn't considered it, but now that you suggest it that does seem useful. Or maybe some other screen in M.b that shows conversations on your posts.
@Mtt Looks like it works! 🙂
@hutaffe @fgtech Good feedback. Let me clarify one thing: the reply is not copied for blogs hosted here, it's included dynamically with a script. So if you delete your account here, your replies will disappear from all hosted blogs that were showing replies. For external blogs like WordPress, it's different... But that's separate from this new feature.
@kevinmarks Thanks. I need to add a little more information for deleted replies before I can support that, but I plan to.
@hutaffe Thanks, I want to give it a little time before adding any settings, but I won't rule it out either. It's not exactly a random site since you're actively replying to someone's blog post. I can see how it gets confusing in a long thread like this one, though.
@fgtech @bix @pratik If you're using this new feature (which I'll officially announce tomorrow) the deleted reply won't show up. If you're using WordPress and getting Webmentions from Micro.blog, I think the reply will stay because it's copied. But that is probably fixable if Micro.blog can notify WordPress about the deletion. I'll check.
@pratik @bix Yes, if you reply to someone's post, then delete your reply, it will disappear everywhere. Your reply isn't included in an export of someone else's blog either. I think it's okay without an opt-out setting for now, but it's a good discussion and something to revisit after more time with the new feature.
@oh_that_courtney Great, thanks! I'm glad you made it.
@fahrni Excellent! Looks great.
@DaveWoodX Glad to hear it!
@kaa Whoops. Yeah, the sharing extension was only designed for photos, not text. You'll have to copy/paste from iA Writer for now.
@dominikhoecht Thanks for your support. It's a priority. I'm puzzled why some people are still seeing delays when it's so quick for me... I'm going to add some better user-specific logging so I can track specific cases that are reported.
@dignmg I like the Blog Archive Format under Posts → Export. There are a few options there, or using the API if you need more control.
@sarcassem Not full access yet. We have a web interface for adding email forwarding, but not other records. However, I can update them in the meantime if you need anything custom added.
