Hi Chris, you may be able to shed some light on this when you can. I’ve installed and am playing around with your iwtwentyfifteen theme on my site. It’s excellent, I really really like it, thank you. I’ve noticed though that my Pages (see About page) and all of my posts when clicked on (see example) display quite differently to the way they do on your site.

There’s a lot of white space visible at the top of Pages and posts and the main menu looks misaligned. I’d also prefer if the content of all of my Pages and single posts appeared identically to the way they do on my homepage – inside a sticky note like box that stands out from the background. The posts look white on a white background at the moment. Is there code I can add/edit in the theme’s source files to make these changes?

🗨 In case this has effected anyone else – I just realised that after recently re-installing the up-to-date Autonomie theme package that my ‘Recent Posts’ weren’t displaying the current date if I’d not provided another title, as I had previously set them up to do. They were displaying “(no title)” instead.

I’d forgotten that, prior to re-installing the theme package with the necessary fix for double content, I’d edited the theme’s function.php file to Change the Post Title to the Current Date as per Chris Reed’s post. I re-added the code available at the above link and all appears to work again.

Read Read “A hashtag functionality hiding with the ActivityPub for WordPress Plugin” by Chris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)

I discovered yesterday that when I added a # (or hash, pound sign, octothorpe, et al.) in front of any word on my site, it created a native version of something akin to Twitter’s #hashtag functionality, but it was working on my own website. The primary difference was that the hashed word on the page was, upon publishing the post, automatically wrapped with a URL for that tag on my own website, and it was also automatically added to the list of tags for the post. (As an illustrative example, I’m doing the same thing with the word hashtag earlier in this paragraph.) I had previously considered adding this type of functionality myself to make syndicating posts (via POSSE) from my own website to sites like Twitter or Mastodon easier. There are a small handful of plugins in the WordPress repository that will add that type of functionality already, but I had eschewed them generally, not wanting yet-another-plugin. I spent some time trying to track down the plugin that was effecting this..

Katherine, I noticed the other day that some of your posts, like this one, is duplicating content, and was sure I’d seen something about it in one of the IW chat logs. This morning I came across a post from Davey Moloney that confirmed my suspicions about a potential bug in the Autonomie theme which I think you’re also using. He said: The Autonomie theme had been displaying duplicate status updates on my site recently. A quick re-install of the most-up-to-date theme package seems to have fixed everything. I know you’ve recently set up your new site, so I thought I’d mention it so you don’t waste time trying to track down the bug, which will hopefully clear up with a refresh of the theme files. I’ll also mention in passing that your menu bar has two “About Me” links (likely introduced because you’re using your about me as your home page–this happened to me a year ago or so), and you’ve left a “Sample Page” published, so that is also hiding in your menu bar as well.

🗨 Ah that makes sense. No problem at all Chris McL and thanks for linking to the fix. Well spotted Chris A, hope this is of some help to Katherine as well. Love using the Autonomie theme so glad that normal service has resumed!

Read Read “Using Inoreader as an IndieWeb feed reader” by Chris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)

It may still be a while before I can make the leap I’d love to make to using Microsub related technology to replace my daily feed reader habits. I know that several people are working diligently on a Microsub server for WordPress and there are already a handful of reader interfaces available. I’m particularly interested in the fact that I can use a reader interface integrated with Micropub so that my reactions in the reader (likes, bookmarks, replies, etc.) are posted back to my own personal website which will then send notifications (via Webmention) to the mentioned websites. Of course it’s going to take some time before I’m using it and even more time after that for the set up to become common and easy to use for others. So until then, I and others will need some tools to use right now. Toward this end I thought I’d double down on my use of Inoreader in my daily web consumption workflows. I wanted to make it easier to use my feed reader to post all these types of posts to my website
