Liked Some quick thoughts on my IndieWeb implementation. by Kimberly HirshKimberly Hirsh (Kimberly Hirsh)
I have been tweaking my website a lot this week and wanted to write a few notes about my IndieWeb progress. In my early days, I tried to just implement a ton of stuff. Then I had to tweak a bunch of things to get what I wanted. I can be too rigid sometimes, and I think some of m...

I’ve been meaning to try something like this.

Ahh I think you use SemPress I am using 2016-IndieWeb I want to change the bookmark feed so the title of the post is the title of the source, needs to include link to source, and then my content. For quotes the block quote doesn’t display. I just haven’t had the time to practice making the templ...

Hi Greg,
My bookmark feeds don’t have the titles of the bookmarks. Nor link to them. Ones < 280 chars don’t have titles.

The RSS templates are not in my theme but in WordPress in wp-includes. I added only one of my own for microcasts and it goes in my theme folder. It is added as a custom feed.

I don’t think that the indieweb themes do anything with the RSS. It sounds like you are looking for daring fireball type titles/links? I think there was a plugin for that.

BTW I didn’t, yet, get a mention from your post?

Replied to Creating a tag cloud directory for the Post Kinds Plugin on WordPress by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)
Yesterday after discovering it on Xavier Roy’s site I was reminded that the Post Kinds Plugin is built on a custom taxonomy and, as a result, has the ability to output its taxonomy in typical WordPress Tag Cloud widget. I had previously been maintaining/displaying a separate category structure fo...

I’ve done this, think I might have to read the ‘wp tag cloud’ in the WordPress Codex to make it look a bit nicer.

Replied to Sending your First Webmention from Scratch by Aaron PareckiAaron Parecki (Aaron Parecki)
Webmention is one of the fundamental indieweb building blocks. It enables rich interactions between websites, like posting a comment or favorite on one site from another site. This post will walk you through the simplest way to get started sending webmentions to other sites so that you can use your ...

I found this really useful in helping me understand webmentions. I’ve been using them for a couple of years or so but avoided reading specs or trying to understand how they work. This tutorial was at exactly the right level for me. It is my ambition for the summer break to sort this blog out a bit. This was a good first step. My Webmention test.

Firstly; I’ve removed most of the post formats leaving the 2 I actually use here. Standard goes to the front page, status to the status. I organise kinds with the post kinds plugin. My Format box now looks like this:

add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'childtheme_formats', 11 );
function childtheme_formats(){
add_theme_support( 'post-formats', array( 'status') );
}

I added the above to my child themes function.php

Based on Post Formats Formats_in_a_Child_Theme in the WordPress Codex. Standard Format is formatless, so you just add the ones you want in addition.

Secondly; I’ve moved the quote and content generated from the Post Kinds plugin to below the post. This is in the Post Kinds setting so was simple. Having them above my remarks meant that the quote was going to micro.blog and twitter rather than my comment.

I hope to have a bit more time over the summer holidays to rethink and rewire the blog. Some of the decisions I’ve made were perhaps not the best.

Most of the functions that have do with micro.blog and microblogging that live in my child theme’s functions.php in a gist.

Liked Drafting #IndieWeb Principles for the Rest of Us (jgregorymcverry.com)
Yet to the audience I serve these set of core ideals can chase folks away for being too technical. So I wanted to remix them to see if I get develop the same principles for a non-technical crowd.

Although I’ve been playing with some indieweb technology and principals on this blog I’ve not really dug into the details. I footer and fidget rather than read and think.  Greg’s rewrite of the principals are interesting. i wonder if they could be ones for the 2nd or 3rd generation indiewebers? I think I am one of these.
