Improved support for SNAP · Issue #39 · dshanske/syndication-links

Many of the channels in SNAP are already supported, but most are currently missing. Support would include not only adding the SVG icons for them, but adding auto-import for displaying them in the list based on the storage location within SNAP.

SNAP currently supports the following:
500px - perhaps leave this off as [ is currently shutting down](
+Google+ (did the icon get fixed for It doesn't currently display in the stable version)

Those marked with a * currently have support for icon display
Those marked with a + currently have support for import of the link


Missing Icons · Issue #38 · dshanske/syndication-links

I noticed that there doesn't seem to be an icon (or it's blank) within syndication links for SoundCloud. It doesn't display the default "share" icon, but shows up as a blank white spot. Maybe a typo in 'syndication-links/includes/class-syn-meta.php' as '' => 'cloud',instead of 'soundcloud'?

Additionally, Ghost and Mailto are explicitly supported in the code, but use the default share icon rather than native icons (perhaps because Ghost doesn't have none?)

UI/UX: Don't display "Text Before Links" text when empty · Issue #37 · dshanske/syndication-links

With the plugin set up and "Text before links" set (to something like "Syndicated to:" the text displays even when there are no syndicated copies. If there aren't syndicated copies, then ideally the text shouldn't appear.

I thought this had been previously filed, but don't see it in the queue anymore, so apologies if it's a duplicate, or fixed in current code, but not in stable.

Reminder: When Nixon ignored Dan Rather's Q at a press conference, Tom Brokaw followed up: "Will you answer Dan Rather's Q?" Took real guts.


@natalieasis If you're in LA for a while, drop a line and I'll take you to lunch.


@natalieasis California is experiencing our annual 2 weeks of rain or what I call "winter". Otherwise it's 70+ and sunny.


@natalieasis Your tweets are some of my favorites, so I'm glad you're back at work!


Replied to a post on :

I've tried a couple of times (when you posted it and twice since) to actually log in and do this, but when I input my site for IndieAuth, the following URL loads with a white page and doesn't actually allow me to log into the UI.

I suspected it might be a temporary problem, but perhaps not? Is something preventing me from logging in to turn it off? I'm not having any issues logging in via IndieAuth on other sites presently, just OYG.


@natalieasis Happy New Year Natalia! We've been missing your insights via Twitter lately...

Hi everybody! Back to the original handle. Is this thing still on? Michelle and I are off on a quick vacation, then we’ll get back to work.

Following @CultureAndAg's blog. I've found so many interesting sources since following Jeremy & @EatPodcast


Unless they're moderating comments, it looks like there's little chance they actually saw your reply.

In some cases where others don't support webmention, if you want them to see your response, you should @mention their Twitter account directly and syndicate your reply to Twitter, and/or you can manually POSSE your response to their page directly via comments.


Everyone is doing this with their Twitter feeds, why not with one's *own* microblog? I'm going to borrow your idea for my primary site. Hopefully without the heartache you encountered though...
