Liked Happy 10th Birthday, Bridgy! by Ryan BarrettRyan Barrett ( Today marks 10 years to the day since I first launched Bridgy, my little IndieWeb side project to connect social networks and personal websites. Happy Birthday, Bridgy! I’ve always loved the internet, but I’m n...

Bridgy is part of the IndieWeb suite of tool I’ve been using it since 2015 without full understanding but with full appreciation. Along with the Post Kinds Plugin and the Syndicated links one has very much changed my blog.

Bookmarked Een alternatief voor Post Kinds? by Frank Meeuwsen (
Inmiddels gebruik ik de Post Kinds plugin (zie mijn handleiding) al weer een tijd op deze site. Het idee van de plugin is erg goed: Je kunt meerdere soorten posts maken en deze naar eigen believen vormgeven of weergeven. Het is een uitbreiding op de Post Formats die WordPress niet echt meer lijkt te...

Unfortunately I’ve been struggling with the plugin for quite some time, something that struck me again when I reread my archive. At the end of December 2020 I already ran into the same problems that I still have. In May 2021 I once again expressed my frustration in a blog post, and luckily both Ton and Jan were kind enough to steer me towards possible solutions. I know that Ton is now busy (or ready?) to phase out Post Kinds. And this plugin from Jan also offers possibilities.

The most I’ve read since starting to make notes on my reading in 2018. Covid had something to do with that.

I probably need to split up the page soon. It uses the display posts plugin to pull out the content of the posts. I stopped using the Read Post Kinds and switched to Notes to avoid the link and quote provided by the post kinds plugin.

I make pretty short notes and include the 📚 emoji to share to the book discovery page. I am not sure about the stars, more a bit of fun than anything serious.

I’ve seen a few mentions of book recording systems recently, is developing bookshelves(with cover art). I sometime use GoodReads, but am more interested in DIY. I got a mention from Ton, which lead to more ideas about sharing. OPML seems to be one way. I am wondering (above my pay grade) about JsonFeed and the WordPress Rest API json and if they might be useful. JsonFeed seems to be limited to the count in your RSS feed (for WordPress).

Seems to do what it says on the tin. The transparent png files are larger. I added a red background and exported as jpg here. Could be useful in school, we normally use keynote & instant alpha. I switched the editor to Blocks added the image compare above and then switched back to classic to use the post kinds plugin.
Quoted What impact will Omicron have on UK children and schools? (
“The fact that children [in England] who are household members of a case are mandated to come into school, and children sitting next to a case in a classroom are not even considered close contacts, suggests that policies are geared towards maximising transmission rather than protecting children and their families,” Dr Deepti Gurdasani, a clinical epidemiologist at Queen Mary University of London, told the Guardian.
