Reply: Migrating Comments to Micro.Blog

Brad Enslen

Okay, I added the Webmention.io codes to the footer on Micro.blog. I don’t really have ready access to the header space. We’ll see if this works and if the codes will work from the footer. It takes Micro.blog some time to update changes so I’m just going to let things set for a bit while that footer updates.

That’s not going to work—for a number of reasons. For one, I forgot that micro.blog already stores your Webmentions. I think, though, that if you can either provide a dump of your Wordpress Webmentions or put your old ‘ramblinggit’ up at another URL, it should be possible to get micro.blog to store all of them.

What I’m thinking is that I’d take all the URLs for those Webmentions and feed them all into micro.blog—as if I was sending the Webmentions from those different blogs. Micro.blog should then verify all the Webmentions on the original blogs and store fresh copies. This could work better than an import—because sometimes HTML gets mangled when importing from one blog engine to another.

As long as I can get a complete list of those Webmention URLs, it should only take a few minutes to feed them all in to micro.blog.

  1. @kicks I've removed the Webmention.io code from the footer.

    First I'm going to see if I can get a third party comment system installed and running. On most of these third party commenters ( Disqus et al.) they have Wizards for most major platforms. But when you get into obscure stuff like MB and have to use the generic code snippet the instructions become less clear. So we will see if it works.

This post accepts webmentions. Do you have the URL to your post?
