OPML link not working · Issue #898 · PressForward/pressforward

## What I tried/expected:
From the page `/wp-admin/admin.php?page=pf-tools` under the `OPML Link` tab, the instructions indicate:
You can share your subscription list as an OPML file by linking people to

## What happened:
Visiting the indicated link throws the following error:
`Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /htdocs/example/wp-content/plugins/pressforward-4.2.2/includes/opml/object.php on line 48

## Additional information:
I've got a handful of feeds, so I should expect something to appear. Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere? I know that there's a setting for the /feedforward RSS functionality/plugin, is there a similar one for OPML that I'm missing?

Running GitHub version 4.2.2, WordPress 4.7.2

Text Before Links text should have stylable class · Issue #47 · dshanske/syndication-links

In tweaking/changing the CSS for the multiple sizes (around v3.1.1), you removed the class from the "Text Before Links" portion, so it's not easily accessible for theming.

It might also be worth putting the entire output into a div with a class as well for better CSS control.

Duplication of links upon update · Issue #45 · dshanske/syndication-links

With v3.1.1 and relying on SNAP for POSSE, I'm noticing that after publishing and syndicating, if one comes back and edits a post and then updates it, Syndication Links regrabs the URL's and duplicates the links.

The first unedited version that is shown seems to be a plain http link and after editing/updating, the second duplicated link that is added automatically is an https version.

Manually deleting either of the included links from the Syndication Links box doesn't get rid of the links.

This duplication of the links only happens on posts which have been later edited/updated.

Here the Twitter and Facebook links, which are generated from SNAP, are duplicated, first as http and then again as https. As a test, the two other syndication links are non-SNAP generated links: huffduffer was manually inserted, and the WordPress one was generated from the WordPress Cross Post plugin, so I'm guessing it's an issue caused by the storage of SNAP links (which are https) versus Syndications Links' storage.


Retrieve Running Time for listen and watch post kinds? · Issue #71 · dshanske/indieweb-post-kinds

For sites like Soundcloud, ITunes, Netflix, youtube (if it's available) it would be nice to retrieve the "running time" of the music, show, film, etc. to display as a running time in the UI for listen, watch, and jam types (rather than the published/updated) for other post types.

Sample URLs
WordPress blueberry podcasts:

When not scrape-able, allowing one to simply enter a 0:00:00 time and a finish time and letting it display the appropriate running time (without entering a date) would be useful for these types as well. (I'm presuming it requires dates to calculate currently as I haven't yet checked....)


Nice thread on PewDiePie and antisemitism.


Did @ifttt really turn off @twitter recipe that allowed one to add twits to a list automatically?
