Webmention likes and replies

I think adding a webmention like or reply to is as simple as adding the appropriate class to an a within your article, div or whatever parent element has an h-entry class? Testing by replying to a post on adding webmentions to Jekyll.

I’m never really sure about which microformats I should be using or where I should or shouldn’t be using them. I don’t even know if there’s any comprehensive documentation about this sort of thing. I’ve just been mostly following the examples in the IndieWeb wiki with some occasional experimentation but sometimes those examples seem inconsistent and I always wonder if I’m making it hard for the recipient’s endpoint software to parse my messages.

                    I also haven’t figured out a good format for the markup containing outgoing mentions. Should I
                    set the u-in-reply-to text to the title of the post to which I’m replying, the blog name, or the
                    author? How do I reconcile this with the title of the post on my end? It’s good that we’re
                    afforded the freedom of deciding these things but some clear guidelines or suggestions in the
                    wiki would be useful.
