Today we’re announcing an all-new P2 beta as a standalone product, powered by http://WordPress.com. We’re excited to have you try it out: https://wordpress.com/blog/2020/08/06/improve-your-remote-collaboration-with-p2/

We had the p2 theme in Glow Blogs and I though it had a lot of potential. I wonder if running your own p2 will be on the cards? I’d love to see it back in Glow.

We removed the p2 theme from Glow a while back and it hasn’t been updated for a few years now.

Update, this thread: Tom J Nowell on Twitter: “Interestingly enough this is in their public theme svn folder as P2020, which reveals why they aren’t letting you install it locally” / Twitter and this tomjn/p2020: A self hosted fork of P2 2020

Hey Pressto! Conference 2020 – A WordPress and ClassicPress conference which happens only on Twitter  #HeyPresstoConf20 organised by Phil Barker (@philbarker) and Pat Lockley  (@pgogy).

It seems to follow on from the 2020 PressEdConf Conference ( I took part in the 2018 one)

Plenty of interesting ideas, for example,  the strong mention of classic WordPress and the Environmental Policy.

A while back I wondered about participating in PressEd using a blog and bridgy that might be an interesting way to take IndieWeb ideas to Hey Pressto.

Bookmarked What If Web – My #pcPopUp2020 Presentation by Aaron DavisAaron Davis
In A More Beautiful Question, Warren Berger talks about the power and potential of different types of questions. One type that stands out is the simple strategy of asking ‘What If?’ Here then are my thoughts on what if the web were different? #pcPopUp2020 What if people had some sort of ownershi...

#pcPopUp2020 was one of the many online things I’d normally have paid attention to that I’ve missed. Aaron is using the Thread Reader App Micropub publisher which looks interesting too.

This was a fascinating podcast. Matt Mullenweg had spoken of an ambition to get WordPress to 80% of the web. Heinemeier Hansson took him to task on twitter and they ended up in a podcast.

An example of civil discussion and disagreement on the internet. Moving off twitter to a better medium.

Although they did not resolve the central concern they touched on many points around control and ownership on the web.

It gave me a little insight into the scale of the web. Left me feeling pretty naive.

A few mentions of capitalism had me wondering what a socialist web would look like?

Replied to IndieWeb Itch – Better Search by Aaron DavisAaron Davis
I have a new #IndieWeb itch, that is extend the search capabilities for my Commonplace Book. I have a practice of saving pertinent quotes within the response properties. However, on research, I have found that the standard WordPress site search only looks at the title and body. Although there seems ...

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.
