@DavidWolfpaw @curtismchale @EricMann Have you followed some of the recent discussion around rel="alternate" to get around the issue of proper use of microformats in WordPress core and/or themes? This could really accelerate the uptake for a great many.


@finiteeyes Congratulations on what appears to be a new site. As you think about public/private and provide an example to others, I'm curious if your comments are avatar-less on purpose or if you've just not come across Gravatar yet?


Katie, I think if you cut and paste all your text/html and paste it into the Text editor instead of the Visual Editor, it will all render properly when you re-save your post.


@outlandishjosh I could easily see @getpantheon building IndieWeb stacks with @WordPress +Plugins or @Drupal or @backdropcms + to expand this type of decentralized web interaction in a way similar to @microdotblog


@ghacksnews Thanks for the reply! Seemed like some cool functionality. I dug around a bit and found this though:
Does much the same "On This Day" type of functionality.
I just wish @timehop ā€¸would integrate WordPress website data into their app now.


@evertp @markusstaab I built some Twitter buttons into my site, but haven't iterated on them as I'd like to:


@matpacker There's some documentation at
I also suspect that some of the WordPress/iOS crowd hanging out in may have some experience with this.Searching in chat may reveal more:


Replied to a post on :

Here's an example of a reply from an entirely different website that isn't affiliated with or WordPress--It's running the WithKnown CMS.

@cogdog Here are the details I wrote up for the fragmention (highlighted links) functionality in WordPress. One of these days I'll build it all into one standalone plugin:


@DavidWolfpaw There's and, but I don't know of anything else along the lines of what you're looking for. I pinged the WordPress chat to see if others had ideas:
Beyond this several of us have tests sites we could use to test things manually if necessary. Feel free to join us in chat for help and other ideas:


@mapkyca @jeremyjmonroe @withknown I haven't seen a plugin either, but it should be doable via API
@Medium wrote their own version for WordPress which still works:


@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


@davidlaietta For WordPress related activity in the area of , 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 ( while @schnarfed has some great work with and

I've written a lot of intro related pieces which may help you get started: In particular, the second two in the "Introductory Articles" section may be the most useful higher level overviews for you. The wiki has a large number of pages devoted to a WordPress worldview starting here:

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 related one as well): If you want to hop on a conference call, I'm happy to walk you through some of the basics and point you in the direction of areas you're most interested in checking out.

If you're free at the end of June, the IndieWeb Summit is a great place to start as well: Many of us are planning on attending. If you can't make it in person, we should be livestreaming a lot of it for remote attendees as well.
