Old posts with no value set for `pf_forward_to_origin` are automatically forwarded · Issue #899 · PressForward/pressforward https://github.com/PressForward/pressforward/issues/899

This has probably been present for a while, but I just noticed after turning on forwarding posts to the canonical URL by setting a time >0 in the forward settings: all the old posts in my database (prior to having PressForward) auto forward as a default back to their own URLs. This means that every X seconds (as set in the setting) pages on my site automatically reload (or are redirected to themselves) and this makes the site relatively useless to attempt to read. (This seems to be a follow on error not noticed in https://github.com/PressForward/pressforward/issues/878, but which persists after the upgrade to 4.2.2 which resolved the problem for posts set to `no-forward`.)

Users adding PressForward on preexisting sites are going to have a tremendous shock if this is the default.

A better option is that all old posts (prior to installation) should default to no-forward (or at least not forward if there is no value set for `pf_forward_to_origin` in the database. PressForward should, in my mind, ideally default to no-forward in all new future posts with the possible exception of posts generated specifically by PressForward's nomination/draft workflow to default to `forward`/`no-forward` based on a possible new setting option in addition to the time setting.

It would be nice if the portion for null/non-existent values of `pf_forward_to_origin` was fixed before 4.2.2 rolled out into the WordPress repository if it hasn't been pushed already.

Running 4.2.2 on WP 4.7.2

Congratulations again to everyone, as always, on what I think is surely one of the most valuable plug-ins in the entire WordPress repository.

 

OPML link not working · Issue #898 · PressForward/pressforward https://github.com/PressForward/pressforward/issues/898

## 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 http://example.com/?pf=opml.

## 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
1`

## 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?

Text Before Links text should have stylable class · Issue #47 · dshanske/syndication-links https://github.com/dshanske/syndication-links/issues/47

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 https://github.com/dshanske/syndication-links/issues/45

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.

example: http://boffosocko.com/2017/02/16/podcast-directories-why-cant-we/
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 https://github.com/dshanske/indieweb-post-kinds/issues/71

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.

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....)
