@jgmac1106 If you're as poor a theme tinkerer as I am but about to embark on adding microformats to a theme, I might recommend taking a look at the individual commit changes that David Shanske goes through in converting the base Twenty Sixteen Theme into a more IndieWeb friendly theme. The list of commits with useful labels can be found here: https:/
I would recommend starting at the bottom and then slowly reading your way to the top to try to understand what he's doing in each section. Note that there are one or two places where he splits a particular change up between a few commits or occasionally backtracks. There's also a section in which he "rips" out the WP core functionality of Post Formats in favor of using the Post Kinds Plugin--I'd recommend you don't do this to make your resultant theme the most flexible. I believe there's also a section in which he adds a "comment walker" and later removes it because the experimentaly functionality was later merged into the Webmentions/Semantic Linkbacks plugin to better handle comments, so you can safely ignore may of those chunks which are now stable.
I suspect that between this and the code models for SemPress and Independent Publisher (which should also have some David Shanske specific commits and related discussion that you can look up) you may be somewhat better off.
Good luck! We're all cheering for you!
@dsample I suspect you're already aware, but for others who come along, some of these functionalities are relatively solid/stable plugins, which we all wish were in core, including https:/
@davidlaietta For WordPress related activity in the area of #IndieWeb, among many others you should generally know are @dshanske (aka GWG), @pfefferle, and @schnarfed (aka snarfed).
In addition to a lot of IndieWeb specific pieces @pfefferle has also done some work on ActivityStreams (https:/
I've written a lot of intro related pieces which may help you get started: http:/
Along with a plethora of others (who I've always found very warm and welcoming) we're all often hanging out in the IndieWeb chat rooms (there's a specific #WordPress related one as well): https:/
If you're free at the end of June, the IndieWeb Summit is a great place to start as well: https:/
@xolotl @indiewebcamp And a nice attempt at a well marked up official RSVP on your site no less!
@FedericoCulloca I haven't heard the episode yet, but I actually created a pronunciation page this past week for just this eventuality! If you know where Torvalds' original is, it would be great to document.
Thanks for your questions. Several of us took a stab at answering them in the IndieWeb wiki today. You can find the answers here: https:/
I recall you said you were in the IndieWeb Slack channel, so if you need more specifics or help, please don't hesitate to stop by and one or more folks there will be happy to help you out the best we can.
@jgmac1106 @DoOO I think that one day in the not-too-distant future, the half a dozen IndieWeb plugins for WordPress will not only merge together, but they might also enter the core product, thus making them simpler and easier to use. WordPress can be made much more flexible and extensible with plugins for a variety of purposes and there's a tremendously valuable community and ecosystem that's already there. Further, I think that companies, similar to Reclaim Hosting and the DoOO movement, will eventually spring up to make hosting and owning one's own site simpler and easier. While there's a lot of value baked into Known, its community and resources aren't (yet!) as large or as flexible as WordPress or even other open source communities. Fortunately the IndieWeb principle of plurality will show us the way forward. The more things working toward openness and shared standards will make these ideas all the stronger.
While the recent spate of work on IndieReaders is awesome and inspiring, I'm also curious what is next after that? IndieBrowsers? IndieHardware?
Ultimately I'm grateful that we're all here pressing the boundaries and experimenting with what is possible.
@cathieleblanc I can't find it now, but it seems like you made a comment the other day that led be to believe that this post/pencast might help you out a bit: http:/
@matthilt There's a number of ways of doing this typically under the titles of POSSE or PESOS. Some for WordPress are documented here: https:/
Specifically for Instagram, I think the majority use OwnYourGram.
Typically the more control you want over output for syndication means a bit more work upfront, while the easy solutions give you less control over how things look. Feel free to ask for opinions in chat as well either in the main channel or the #WordPress channel.
