Hello World of 2022Date:
Happy New Year!
For whatever reason,1 I saw this post from @dsyates about using Mastodon to add comment functionality to a “static” blog. This is a feature that I was looking for a long time. However, when I searched for a solution, I could not find a straightforward way to integrate this feature without non-FOSS third-party tools.
I found it very attractive, because that is encouraging me to use Mastodon and connect with a new community, now I am here: @nehemie!
To conclude, as @dsyates puts it:
This blog post is really just a test to try out as implemented and explained by @carl: in this blogpost on a Hugo static site; as well as by @xosem: in this blogpost on a Jekyll static site.
I was playing with the Mastodon platform, and in my preferences, I went to “Automated post deletion” and selected “Automatically delete old posts” after a threshold of two weeks. I like hiking and one of the moto is “leave no trace”. I thought that it was clever to select it (for privacy), and that it would free space on the server (saving energy). However, I did not realise that it would delete my tooth about my blogpost that is referenced as ID! Therefore, I succeeded in deleting the first comments on my blog (I am sorry about that). So if you add comment via Mastodon, either do not auto-delete your post, or make sure to activate an option to avoid this (such as bookmarking to prevent deletion).
I think that I was researching about the Gemini protocol and landed on https://lottalinuxlinks.com. ↩
