I set up Brid.gy over the weekend to start capturing webmentions from Mastodon, and it would be great to impliment them into the Ghost post in leu of comments. However, I’m not sure where these webmentions are being stored or what I can do with them at this point.
As @matenauta said, I think I’m missing something here. So, is Ghost’s implimentation of webmentions only for the new recomendations feature or can it also be used to capture likes, reposts, etc. on social feeds using a tool like Brid.gy?
Yeah, it seems like the incoming webmentions aren’t really “usable” so far, given that there is no way of accessing them from the frontend.
The mentions should be captured though, as far as I understand the implementations. There should be notifications about mentions in the admin panel, though since I haven’t had tested it myself, I can’t tell you how they look exactly.
Bringing this back up. While Ghost’s webmention implimentation leaves a lot to be desired, it is capturing the webmentions. Does anyone know where those are being stored? I’ve played with the file system but can’t find anything and I don’t know enough about SQL to go looking there.
I ask because I tried setting up webmentions.io, yet the Ghost implimentation supersedes it. So, I’m trying to figure out what Ghost is doing with the information it receives and if it’s possible to do anything with it, like, I don’t know, use it for comments/likes on posts.
