At one point, for several years I had a particular destiny and singular focus, and things seemed great. It took several years after having and then losing(?)/moving on from that focus to figure out what to do next. I can currently relate to not only your general thoughts about wanting to do everything, but even specifically to many of them including math, physics, publishing, ancient languages, computer science, philosophy, etc. The tough part is that I always feel like the "job" I want to have hasn't been invented yet. It's taken a while, but it sure seems fun searching for it now that I've embraced the search. If you do ever figure things out and the "company" has another opening, do let me know...

 

@emcconover I'll have to add this to the litany of other issues:

I REALLY LOVE how the feed reader https://woodwind.xyz/ is set up and integrates directly into my own website for publishing and replies. I'm hoping that as it evolves, this is the type of functionality and UI/UX that @manton also continues to aspire toward with micro.blog. (Hint: there's code on GitHub - https://github.com/kylewm/woodwind)

 

@Mercy They seem like completely different products to me.
Known is a CMS which allows you to own your data, then publish and syndicate it to multiple platforms (including uploading to Anchor). It doesn't have any audio creation or editing functionality. I have seen people using this and WordPress lately for small personal microcast "channels" which can be subscribed to or syndicated out to other social platforms.

Anchor appears to have some production and publishing tools as well as a distribution platform of sorts. It looks like the material you publish to your own station can be listened to for 24 hours, but then disappears unless you archive it to your account privately. Fortunately you can export your audio with a little bit of gymnastics, but it's not intuitive. This seems more like an ephemeral audio version of snapchat to me.

I'm curious what you're looking for in a minipodcast? I'm considering something shortly myself and have been looking at Anchor as well as Opinion2, Spreaker Studio, audioBoom, tryca.st, and even others as simple as using my LiveScribe Echo pen to record and then distribute via my Known or WordPress sites.

 

It looks like you may be using the Post Kinds plugin, so you should be able to reply to other sites using that and putting the requisite URL into the interface under "Post Properties" and including your response. The plugin will include the necessary u-in-reply-to microformat class and your webmention plugin will handle sending the response. If you'd like, you can try responding directly to this post at its permalink.

An alternate method is to use the Indieweb Press This bookmarklet for replies (if you're using the Indieweb Plugin) . You can find the bookmarklets at your /wp-admin/tools.php page about halfway down. Then you can click the bookmarklet on the page you'd like to reply to and it will craft a part of the post to send the reply and then you just add what you wanted to say before publishing to send the webmention.

 
 

@jgmac1106 @wiobyrne I'm excited! Open is good, but most think it hurts bottom line. Did I mention I have a small publishing company? ;)

 
 
 

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.

 

Replied to a post on github.com :

I've had issues in the past with using IndieAuth logins and Known. Sometimes it's finicky and prefers the http://sitename.com/profile/username pattern and won't work with http://sitename.com.

I'll note that I've tried logging in with both:
http://stream.boffosocko.com/profile/chrisaldrich
http://stream.boffosocko.com
and didn't have any problems/issues.
I suspect that for multi-user installations, Known needs the /profile/username addition to distinguish which account to allow publishing to. If I recall OwnYourGram had issues like this in the past if you need advice on what the solution was.

Does Kevin have a multiuser installation? Perhaps he was trying to log in with one account while logged into another?

 
 

After upgrading yesterday to both WP 4.6 and SNAP 3.6.8 (pro), I'm getting the following error when publishing new posts:

Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WP_Post as array in /homepages/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/social-networks-auto-poster-facebook-twitter-g/inc/nxs_functions_adv.php on line 155

The post publishes as expected and then the error is thrown. When reviewing over the post afterwards, it appears that it didn't post to Facebook, Tumblr or Twitter, which had been selected on this particular post.

 

@natalieasis Having worked in publishing/entertainment and having a knowledge base of IT, complexity, let me know how I can help.

 

@natalieasis I look at publishing an already see the vampire zeitgeist as done nearly 2 years ago after zombies jumped the shark.
