Hello Matthias & David;
I’m taking my very first steps playing with this + can’t quite get it to work yet. First question was : does the XML-RPC-interface need to be active for Webmentions to work? I had that disabled site-wide per .htaccess – so I thought I was maybe choking myself out there. However, also after turning that back on I’m getting a “Service Unavailable” response from the endpoint when pining it for testing purposes (using the ping me button on a post).
Can you perhaps lend a bit of a guiding hand towards what I might be doing wrong? Cheers – LX

You can disable the XML-RPC endpoint, there is no dependency with the Webmention plugin.
Can you send me some example URLs so I can try to reproduce your issue?
Hello, Matthias +
thanks for getting back to me re this. 🙂
I have a bunch of dummy posts we can use to ping-pong a bit with, if that would work for your analytic purposes? They’re under > https://liberal.is/blog/ressort/la-une/exemples/
Let me know how I can best assist you to get a better insight. Should I ping a post of yours? Do you want to ping a post of mine? 🙂
Cheers – LX
can you link from one of the posts to an other post and send me these posts? Be sure to enable the self-pings in the Webmention settings.
Liebe Grüße 😊
Hallo retour 🙂
very well. Below https://liberal.is/blog/2017/08/02/quinoa-new-recipes-feta-broad-bean-salad/ I have left a comment I have left a comment containing a link to > https://liberal.is/blog/2017/08/02/one-swallow-does-not-make-the-spring-2/.
In the backend, no Webmention is showing :/ as yet.
– Disable self-pings on the same URL (for example “http://example.com/?p=123”) is ON
– Disable self-pings on the same Domain (for example “example.com”) is OFF.)
Beste Grüße ebenfalls 🙂

That is not exactly how it works…
You have to link from one blog-post to the second… then the first blogpost will show up as a reaction (comment) on the second blog-post.
oh darn 😀 pardon my dumb 😛
hello, IndieWeb + thanks for jumping in. I have now amended the actual post at https://liberal.is/blog/2017/08/02/quinoa-new-recipes-feta-broad-bean-salad/ to contain a link to https://liberal.is/blog/2017/08/02/one-swallow-does-not-make-the-spring-2/ at the very end.
Alas, still not showing. Maybe I’m still doing something wrong – or does it work only on first / original posting and not with subsequent updates, perhaps?
thx! 🙂 LX
(to add : tried a fresh post, too > https://liberal.is/blog/2018/12/24/one-more-test-for-webmentions/ > not showing either. I must be still having something wrong.)
Sorry + thanks for any further help with this.
Cheers – lx
it seems that you have enabled a captcha plugin, that hooks into every comment-creation process. Can you try to disable the plugin and re-try sending a webmention?
I had 2 potential suspects active:
a) “Spam Destroyer”
b) “Shield Security” (which comes with dedicated Anti-Spam-Section)
went about testing like this:
a: disabled “Spam Destroyer” (which means “Shield” was still active)
a.1 : edited pre-existing test post with link to other post : no effect
a.2 : created new test post with link to other post : no effect
b: disabled “Shield”s ‘ Module: Comments SPAM Protection’ entirely (which means both ‘Spam Destroyer’ and ‘Shield’s Anti-Spam-Section were inactive at the same time)
b.1 : edited pre-existing test post with link to other post : no effect.
b.2 : created new test post with link to other post : no effect.
Can you perhaps give further indication whence the captcha originates? A path that might hint at the serving plugin?
Cheers – LX
I re-tried it with the Webmention-Endpoint form:
and I get an error:
+ thank you for pursuing this further. Apologies for my delayed response, that was owed to the Christmas slack etc.
It then shoewd nicely in the queue of comments pending moderation in our backend and, afer accpetance, below the article, @ https://liberal.is/blog/2017/08/02/one-swallow-does-not-make-the-spring-2/#comment-96 🙂 – so, yay! Success!! 🙂
Cheers for that. (y)

Beyond that, I notice/d that there, so far, appears to be no German translation included. Is somebody working on that already or would a German translation still pose a welcome contribution?
Best – LX
Every contribution is helpful! It would be awesome, if you can help with the german translation. I started, but never had the time, to get to 100% https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/de/default/wp-plugins/webmention
I’d simply have dug myself thru the translation per Loco on my admin backend and sent you the .mo/.po one way or the other;
am not familiar with translate.wordpress.org yet. Which of the 4 branches displayed there would you need tackled? Would it perhaps make sense to go like I suggested instead of plowing thru 2 or 4 instances at translate.wordpress.org? I must confess, I don’t even understand what the readme instances are for, sorry to say.
But I know how to use Loco 😉
if that helps? Cheers – LX
