@Angeli_Richard Your life is about to change.


@cleverdevil Wish I was headed "home" for the weekend to talk @WordPress

@dshanske Always happy to give it a shot...

Yes, that tweak ( does appear to work. It fixes both the fatal error and the fact that the curator name and appropriate URL wasn't working.

Great "marketing" work @xolotl! ;)

Sadly, I hadn't thought to check the PHP version, though mostly because my host apparently did a forced upgrade to 7.

You've just updated with another PR as I'm writing this. Does the new one fix the Currated by _____ piece? The intermediate code wasn't returning the user name or the correct URL for that user?

Liked Matt Gemmell's tweet: Thought: similar to /now pages🕘, it might be interesting to have a /using (?) page, listing your fave tools.

@mattgemmell Lifehacker & others have What We Use series. I like the idea of giving it a page in the menu.

Liked Screech, a simple client for posting audio content (such as podcasts) to your own site using Micropub, is now available publicly. You can check it out at

@EddieHinkle I really like the short, but visual nature of the watch posts on your site! Very slick.


@EddieHinkle That particular example didn't have any commentary other than to say I listened to it. This example had more of my additional thoughts attached:


@EddieHinkle Clicking through will show that the text in the Twitter card is a quote of the original, in some part a reminder to me about what it was I had listened to. (It also serves as an advertisement for the thing itself--I like to promote good podcasts.) Most often these posts are just an emoji indicating the post type with the title and source of the thing I listened to. Occasionally I'll add some bit of a reply or commentary and bury the true post type into the Twitter Card along with a quote from the original. eg:

Once in a rarer blue moon I'll throw a snippet of commentary into the Twitter card, but not often. See also for some thoughts on this. It's ever evolving. I'd love to hear your thoughts on improvement or alternate methods. I particularly like dumping additional data into the twitter cards when I can, though I'm aware that not all Twitter clients make use of them.

If you want to listen to what I'm listening to, you can subscribe to it via This feed format also works for other post types like "read", "like", "favorite", "photos", "checkins", "watches", etc.


Punch buggy!
