Chris offers some illustrated advice:

  • Define the purpose of your site
  • Organize your content
  • Look for inspiration
  • Own your own domain name
  • Build your website

Showing IndieAuth and Micropub at HWCLondon!

Haha, yup! That said, I’ll definitely ping you (and drop it in the IndieWeb chat) when I get this base-line system going. Going to tear down what I have with https://fortress.black.af to focus on this.

IndieWebCamps Timeline 2011-2019: Amsterdam to Utrecht

SemPress war das erste WordPress Theme (September 2002), das Microformats 2 unterstützte und somit voll IndieWeb-kompatibel war. Seit ein paar Monaten/Jahren gibt es zwar weitere Themes die MF2 unterstützen, aber SemPress ist seit fast 7 Jahren (Dezember 2002) immer noch das einzige, das über WordPress.org installierbar (ist das ein Wort?) ist.

Prateek Saxena arbeitet gerade daran, das zu ändern! Sein Theme ist seit diesem Jahr auf WordPress.org und er arbeitet fleißig am MF2 Support.

`war ne lange Zeit 🙂

A journey to the underworld that is RDF

Added Mastodon Autopost Plugin to WordPress Blog

Tumblr Sold to Automattic (Diary of Dennis)
What it means for WordPress.com users is not clear either. But if we start to speculate based on the term “standardize” he used in his statement, it’s likely that the company will enable sharing or reblogging across both services. It could also be that they bring registered users of both services closer together, which could also mean that it becomes easier for users of both services to comment and interact with each other. If we speculate further, it could become a reality that both services are integrated into the same feed or reader, which is how both communities could meet and interact with each other.

This was a surprise for me. I’m not sure what any of this means for Tumblr or WordPress.com customers but I think it’s an exciting development. Perhaps we’ll get more Indieweb features such as Webmentions.

Tumblr and… App.net

MySpace with web standards and a personalized domain name that you can export anytime as html. Using webmentions & some form of oAuth. That’s what is going to win.

I'm going!

So excited to be co-organizing an IndieWebCamp in NYC!

Week Notes 19#32

And now https://lwa.black.af/ is up with some new copy. The reader link is valid but I took it off for now.
Working on the actual Microsub plumbing after I get the IndieAuth flow going

I’m up late because I got a red-eye. Going to use the time now to add some more copy to https://lwa.black.af then add some stuff like IndieAuth and Micropub support. Microsub will be the newest spec I have to implement.

Very excited!

Threaded Replies and Comments with Webmentions in WordPress (BoffoSocko)
This is how comments and replies on the internet were meant to be! You can now easily implement them in WordPress.

I see a bit of odd behaviour regarding Webmentions, Semantic Linkbacks and comments. There are five responses in this thread which started with a post from my blog that that was syndicated to micro.blog. Three of the responses show up under the original blog post. However, two show up under my Webmentions collection page.

I am not using the WordPress Webmention for Comments plugin. Can you help?

It also seems that it’s no longer possible to change the Webmention type via Semantic Linkbacks.
