When someone says “Send me a (Web)mention,” I like to oblige. I guess it’s my inner urge to test and help others test that’s driving this puppy. So, hi John.

Your h-entries should have, at minimum, the following properties:

  • e-content — the main content of the post
  • p-name — if your post is an article with a name, use this classname.
  • dt-published — the datetime the post was published at, in ISO8601 format, with a timezone
  • u-url — the canonical URL of the post, especially important on pages listing multiple posts

It’s a common convention for the published datetime to be a link to the post itself, but they can be separate if you want.

There should also be some way to discover the author of the post — either link to your homepage (which should have your h-card on it) from anywhere within the body of the page with rel=author, or optionally embed a p-author h-card in the h-entry.

The web is an expressive medium, and as such there are many other properties which you can add to your posts. Check out the h-entry documentation for a full list.
