Interested in becoming part of the after @t's talk at ? I'm happy to help or answer questions. I've also got some WordPress specific experiments and documentation (on my own website, of course):

Wishing I was at today to hear my friend Tantek Çelik @t, web standards lead @Mozilla & @CSSwg, talk on "Take Back Your Web"

Livestream: https://2019.us.wordcamp.org/livestream/saturday/#240 at 2:30PM Central
https://2019.us.wordcamp.org/session/take-back-your-web/

 

After some warm-hearted arm-twisting by the incomparable @VeriousSmith, I've submitted a talk about and to @WordCampRS '19.
Talk or not, I look forward to seeing everyone Nov 8-10.

@tElizaRose @tw2113 I've been taking some time off/away from it in the late summer, but I've got some pieces (esp. for/from perspective) started:

@hankchizljaw There's also @withknown & @WordPress which also have webmention support for site-to-site communication in addition to all the other tech @keithjgrant mentioned. Next we just need the microsub solution widely distributed https://aaronparecki.com/2018/03/12/17/building-an-indieweb-reader

 

@DavidWolfpaw @curtismchale @EricMann Have you followed some of the recent discussion around rel="alternate" to get around the issue of proper use of microformats in WordPress core and/or themes? This could really accelerate the uptake for a great many.

 

@finiteeyes Congratulations on what appears to be a new site. As you think about public/private and provide an example to others, I'm curious if your comments are avatar-less on purpose or if you've just not come across Gravatar yet?

Katie, I think if you cut and paste all your text/html and paste it into the Text editor instead of the Visual Editor, it will all render properly when you re-save your post.

@outlandishjosh I could easily see @getpantheon building IndieWeb stacks with @WordPress +Plugins or @Drupal or @backdropcms + https://www.drupal.org/project/indieweb to expand this type of decentralized web interaction in a way similar to @microdotblog

 

@ghacksnews Thanks for the reply! Seemed like some cool functionality. I dug around a bit and found this though: https://wordpress.org/plugins/room-34-presents-on-this-day/
Does much the same "On This Day" type of functionality.
I just wish @timehop ‏would integrate WordPress website data into their app now.

 

@evertp @markusstaab I built some Twitter buttons into my site, but haven't iterated on them as I'd like to:

@matpacker There's some documentation at https://indieweb.org/Workflow.
I also suspect that some of the WordPress/iOS crowd hanging out in micro.blog may have some experience with this.Searching in chat may reveal more: https://chat.indieweb.org/indieweb/

 

Replied to a post on kfitz.info :

Here's an example of a reply from an entirely different website that isn't affiliated with micro.blog or WordPress--It's running the WithKnown CMS.

Congrats on getting two-way conversations going on your website.

 

@cogdog Here are the details I wrote up for the fragmention (highlighted links) functionality in WordPress. One of these days I'll build it all into one standalone plugin: https://boffosocko.com/2018/01/23/fragmentions-for-better-highlighting-and-direct-references-the-web/

 

@DavidWolfpaw There's https://micropub.rocks/ and https://webmention.rocks, but I don't know of anything else along the lines of what you're looking for. I pinged the WordPress chat to see if others had ideas: https://chat.indieweb.org/wordpress/2018-06-01#t1527886682806700
Beyond this several of us have tests sites we could use to test things manually if necessary. Feel free to join us in chat for help and other ideas: https://indieweb.org/discuss
