Webmention itself only contains the link to the mentioning page, nothing more, not even the date/time (it’s up to receiving party to record the date/time the mention was received, if they care). Surprise: same goes for trackpacks and pingbacks! It’s up to the receiving-end software to do the processing (like: go to the source of the webmention, take a snippet and store it for later presentation).

If your software fails you, it’s not always an indication that something is wrong with the protocol.


Comments can be sent as webmentions or by email.
