@Cambridgeport90 I don't worry about them stepping on each other, I simply make sure they're cross-linked so that if I go looking for something, I'll be able to find it. Webmention definitely helps in this respect.

As an example you'll notice that my earlier response ( links to part of the related commentary on my main site, so there will be a webmention in the comments there that ties it all together.


@Cambridgeport90 I've been doing some more experimenting lately. Usually I use Known for quicker replies to specific social media. Otherwise I primarily use my WordPress site for almost everything else.


@RobertHaisfield I agree wholeheartedly and have written a bit about it on my own site before. H is not totally against it, but may need a nudge to implement it.


@cswordpress I'm aware of the general problems with it and others like it. In my particular case, it's a specific stopgap remedy for a few non-technical family members with specific needs. Hopefully it doesn't cause more problems than it's fixing. I'm happy to hear if there are other things I can improve for anyone with specific needs/desires.


@kimberlyhirsh I hadn't seen it; thanks for sharing. Boffo and socko are neologisms pioneered by Variety and the Hollywood trade press and so aren't necessarily specific to the Muppets. Something about this reminds me of a 16mm print of his experimental short Time Piece from the mid-60s which I used to screen in front other 60s films in college. If I recall, I think he got an academy award nomination for it.


It may take a little bit of set up/registration, but there are Twitter & Mastodon plugins for Known that should allow you to syndicate directly with simple buttons. It will allow you to syndicate without those dreadful "shadow" URLs that also show up in your syndicated copies as well as your URLs.



@TYLTK Mine's back up, and from what I see in the Known chat, you should be back too. Details about the issue here:


@Cambridgeport90 For the theme, that seems like something Pfefferle would fix pretty quickly (and for everyone else whose got the problem) if you filed it as an issue on the theme repo on Github.


@Cambridgeport90 After you set Geonames as your provider and save it, there's an input box for the API key which pops up (and many might miss) on the next page. You'll need to get one and save it for the location to work.


@Cambridgeport90 You need to tweak the theme so that Jetpack isn't included in the div with e-content.
You can use to test. Bridgy also has a preview option at


@AndreJaenisch Yes, they took that name as an homage.

Huzzah! It looks like I've gotten my WithKnown site back up and running after some database issues. What will we do next?


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):


The invited talk "Take Back Your Web" given by the thoughtful and Inimitable @t should be livestreaming in just a few minutes from WordCamp US
