Wishing I was at #WCUS today to hear my friend Tantek Çelik @t, web standards lead @Mozilla & @CSSwg, talk on "Take Back Your Web"
This is just the kind of post I added a chicken feed to my WordPress site for. #pressedconfused #indieweb #fun
RSVP invited · Issue #156 · pfefferle/wordpress-semantic-linkbacks https:/
When Brid.gy sends webmentions for people invited via a Facebook POSSE copy, the webmentions for these people don't show up properly in comments because `semantic_linkbacks_type` is set to "invite" instead of "rsvp:invited".
Manually effecting the change in the database provides the expected display. See: http:/

YouTube URL embeds not working · Issue #1 · dshanske/twentysixteen-indieweb https:/
In archive views (/kind/post_kind/) and individual pages, typical raw YouTube URLs in pages that previously converted them into embeds via WordPress now just display them as text (non-clickable) URLs.
This may also extend to other types of WordPress embeds as well.
Makes me wish I was in Auckland at the end of the month to chat with @billbennettnz on @WordPress and #Journalism

Mostly to provide some additional resources to the conversation I'll add the following:

Keep in mind that some of the standard is geared specifically toward browsers and browser vendors, though WordPress could certainly implement some of the pieces from the CMS side.
Old posts with no value set for `pf_forward_to_origin` are automatically forwarded · Issue #899 · PressForward/pressforward https:/
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:/
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:/
## 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:/
## 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?
