Hi Davey, the safest way to implement something like this is to create a child theme of Autonomie, and add your changes to the functions.php file of the child theme. This will protect your customisations from updates to the base theme in most cases.
If you want, you can check out my own child theme …

Cheers Chris, will take a look into doing that. Strangely enough, I didn’t receive a webmention on my site about your reply post at all, I just stumbled across this reply randomly! 🤔

🗨 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!
