Added cactus comments to my soon™ to be retired website linked to this account. Had spent most of today trying to get it to work with dendrite for my other site, convincing myself I had messes up the appservice install bit then I tried against a synapse backend and it worked immediately.. haven’t enabled guest access so matrix account required.. that website now receives comments via webmentions, activitypub and cactus comments.

Will give me a chance to play about with it until dendrite is a bit more mature and I can switch to it and enable on my personal site.

Very cool idea, but glad synapse had spaces implemented before I played with it.

Alternatively, if you do not have a webmentions enabled website then you can leave a message using the comment parade form below.

All going well, interactions will take a few minutes to appear, possibly longer due to .. gremlins.

could probably do with some styling changes but meh, will focus on that when I can do it on the replacement site.
