IndieWeb Challenge Day 5
Tweaking Webmentions and Comments
A brief flurry of webmentions to a recent post reminded me that I needed to look again at how those things are presented. In building the new theme, I had discovered the
<summary> elements and used them to hide interactions as the default. I hope most people know that clicking on the triangle will expose something hidden. Ideally I would like to offer different visual presentation depending on whether either webmentions or comments exist. That is not going to happen for a while.
Instead, I opted to slightly tweak the presentation and to offer a brief explanation of webmentions and of comments. Tiny changes, but hey, it counts.
Webmentions allow conversations across the web, based on a web standard. They are a powerful building block for the decentralized social web.
