Aaron is wondering about Jetpack after reading Doug’s post about privacy. The post is fascinating and a useful reminder. On the Jetpack front I’ve got Jetpack installed but the “Publicize connections” & “Sharing buttons” turned off. I don’t see any traffic going to Facebook using two of the tool’s that Doug suggests. Perhaps Jetpack is OK? Or I don’t really know how to use the tools.

“@johnjohnston @IaninSheffield @Sfm36 @Miss_Anderson @athole @StephenReidEdu @IanStuart66 @claganach I am a POSSE kinda guy to be honest John. I will often carve a response on my site and then either send it via SNAP or copy it and then manually add the syndication link. Documented much of my workflow here https://t.co/8pmpBCxrPD”

POSSE is best, but I sometimes knee jerk or fire a quick tweet & then think that would be best on my site. I am also lazy & inconsistent. Some real gold in Managing Content Through Canonical Links, thanks

Hi Aaron,

I realised I had the same itch! I think the custom google search would do the trick.  But I though it might be better to have something built in to WordPress. I found Search WordPress by Custom Fields without a Plugin | Adam Balée Designs, LLC. This requires you edit a functions.php file. I’ve already got one in my child theme so added the code there. It works.

This sounds really promising Chris.

Hi Aaron,

My class dipped their toes in minetest recently: Christmas Challenge 1 – Minetest – Banton Biggies.

Setting up a local server was really simple. I managed to get the class having a little fun without really knowing much. These types of games are always a bit daunting for non-gamers like myself but the low entry barrier means I can tread carefully. I’d be interested to see what other schools are  doing with minetest and the similarities and differences with minecraft.
