@sadlerjw You've certainly found a few of the remaining pain points within the broader community and specifically with WordPress. There are obviously some UI bits like properly threaded conversations across multiple syndicated silos that could be better. I've written a tad about how threaded comments work between sites using WordPress, though didn't touch on the idea of doing so also using Twitter or micro.blog: http:/
Ideally in the end, everything would support Webmention and needing to syndicate to outside services would be somewhat moot.
As long as the conversation for something on micro.blog starts on your own site, the replies that occur there will generally flow back to your site via Webmention, but sadly one needs to use some manual chicanery to get a similar back and forth effect with other services like Twitter.
I suspect that in the coming months/year(s) things on this end will improve as the community marches forward.
Either way, congratulations on what you've done with you're site! Hope to see you around either via reader or micro.blog.
The magic is likely courtesy of the fact that my post has a meta tag for og:image that includes (or transcludes) that image from Naughton's website. It's something I added in for syndicating to sites like Twitter or Facebook to add a little visual interest. I suspect that whatever you're using to unfurl the page on your site is picking up that data to display it as context for your like. You'll notice that the same photo appears on Twitter as well: https:/
I'm currently doing this with fields in the All In One SEO plugin for WordPress, though I suspect that Yoast and other Open Graph meta related plugins will do it as well. More often than not I use the functionality to force particular photos to be shown in syndicated services. Usually I'll also transclude the photo in my own post, so in most cases you probably wouldn't have guessed. Sharp eye for having noticed here Jeremy.
Jeremy, if you haven't tried it before, take a look at Ryan Barrett's Instagram Atom Feeds tool https:/
As for extracting your own photo data, I've heard this week that although Instagram is cutting off more and more API access, while confronting the Facebook problem lately and the looming GDPR, they've apparently enabled the ability to download all of your photos. I haven't tried it yet to see what the data looks like or the quality of the images is, but it's a tiny step forward for data freedom that they didn't have before.
@ForeignAffairs Is there a reason that https:/
@spigot They should be in one of your comments "folders" and once approved they appear in the comments section of the particular post.
Anyone who didn't get enough of Open Domains Lab this afternoon is more than welcome to join in on the #IndieWeb chat to continue conversing and building their website. #DoOO
They're not all articles necessarily, but it's taken me ages to begin posting on my own site more frequently. Practice over time makes perfect though.
