  • Fixing a bug that prevented the Webmention-receiving plerdwatcher process from accepting webmentions for posts created after it launched.

  • Separating the display of replies versus uncategorized webmentions, in the sample templates.

  • Retroactively adding a bunch of entries to the 1.6 Changelog entry that I forgot about in the excitement of the Webmention stuff.

Assets 2
  • Adding support for social-media metadata tags, allowing services like Facebook, Twitter, and Slack to display previews of Plerd-based posts that they link to.

    If you are upgrading to this release from an earlier Plerd version, then in order to take advantage of this new features you'll need to do a couple of things:

    • Add some Template Toolkit tags like this to your wrapper.tt file, within the <head> tags:

      [% IF context_post %]
      [% context_post.social_meta_tags %]
      [% END %]

      See the file at templates/wrapper.tt for a working example.

    • Set either the facebook_id and twitter_id config directives to your blog (or both), and consider setting a default image as well. See https://github.com/jmacdotorg/plerd#social-media-metatags for full documentation.

  • Improving and reorganizing docs and examples a bit, including first links to the wiki (hosted on GitHub) for higher-level documentation.
