Adds a quick interface for simple notes and bookmarks. Enhanced by the Indieweb Post Kinds plugin.


A web action is the interface and user experience of taking a specific discrete action, across the web, from one site to another site or application.

This adds the ability to create a post directly from the URL bar.

This requires you are logged into WordPress as a user who has permission to create posts. The posts are private by default.

By default, it allows note and bookmark posts to be made. If you have the Indieweb Post Kinds plugin enabled, it will also allow like, favorite, reply and repost.

It also supports a menu option to link to support options, and indie-config.


  • indie-action - such as bookmark, note, etc.
  • url - the URL of what you are responding to
  • name - the post title/the title of the URL
  • excerpt - An excerpt of the content (optional)
  • public - if you want the post public (optional)

If you don't add a URL, it will display a form you can fill in. Otherwise, it endeavors to pull information on the site you are linking to if you do not provide it.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are web actions?

Web actions allow you to wrap sharing buttons in markup that would allow others to click like, reply, or repost on your site, and post a reply seamlessly on theirs.

This plugin wraps the built-in comment replies in this markup(Credit to Matthias Pfefferle for the initial webaction code for this). You can optionally add additional buttons.

What is indie-config?

Indie-config is a method of using protocol handler to setup your website to bothnotify the browser that it can handle webactions and then do so.

This plugin uses javascript written by Pelle Wessman for the protocol handling.
