Scrolling error on Annual Site Stats page

Filed an Issue Automattic/jetpack (GitHub)
Increase your traffic, view your stats, speed up your site, and protect yourself from hackers with Jetpack. - Automattic/jetpack

Perhaps this is a native WP.com issue, but I suspect it’s JetPack functionality as it occurs both with a .org connected account as well as an example.wordpress.com domain both of which have a “Powered by JetPack” logo on the bottom of the page.

Steps to reproduce the issue

  1. Go to https://wordpress.com/stats/day/annualstats/example.com
  2. Scroll down the page (zoom in if necessary so that the table fills the entire screen; the error isn’t as or won’t be obvious on a new account or if one doesn’t have several years worth of data to view)

What I expected

I expected the entire chart and page to scroll down.

What happened instead

The Year column stayed fixed and the remainder of the chart scrolls down the page instead. Without zooming in/out on the entire page, one can’t visualize the data or have it align properly.

Screenshots
Here’s a shot of the misaligned static year column versus the remainder of the chart which scrolls up/down.
On a multi-column display the year column doesn't scroll in alignment with the remainder of the chart

PubMed parsing

Can Act as a Standalone Plugin - dshanske/parse-this

I would think that a major information hub like PubMed would have better metadata given its position in the research space but apparently not. It returns very little data, but could be way better.

Proper tagging on upper case vs lower case

Not quite sure what may be causing it, but I’ve noticed on my site that I get a properly tagged but don’t get it properly tagged when I use lower case . Is this to be expected or something in the line of a regex issue?

Improve instructions for use

Filed an Issue Automatically send mentions to IndieNews. (GitHub)
Contribute to pfefferle/wordpress-indienews development by creating an account on GitHub.

Some who come across the plugin who are relatively IndieWeb-aware don’t know how to use the plugin:
eg: https://islandinthenet.com/saturday-16-february-2019-1017am/ which has resulted in some unintended spam in the IndieNews feed.

What exactly are the triggers for syndicating to IndieWeb News and Indieweb.xyz? Is it just having a tag indienews, indieweb, or even indie* where * is a wildcard? Are there others I may be missing?

Can one target other subs within indieweb.xyz (examples: /en/longreads or /en/games/) or just the /language/indieweb/ sub with the plugin? How is differentiating them done from the user’s perspective? I do see a reference to the /hottubs/ sub in the code, but I’m not following all the logic there.

I suspect it would also be nice to have some details about the dashboard widget and news feeds as well as listing a requirement for the Webmention plugin which some might not know about.

I’m happy to modify the readme’s with better instructions if I can be a bit more clear on some of what the code is doing with regard to the above.

A few display quirks in the Syndication Links plugin

Filed an Issue Add and Display Syndication Links. (GitHub)
Contribute to dshanske/syndication-links development by creating an account on GitHub.

With the most recent update I’m noticing a few small edge case quirks that seem to have popped up:

For syndication to indieweb.xyz the displayed result (set for icon only) is giving a relatively interesting “info” icon,which is a reasonable proxy, but sadly the hover text is also “info” instead of a more useful or expected “indieweb.xyz”.

For syndications to reading.am (which I’m guessing still doesn’t have a service specific icon) instead of giving the old default image of a globe icon, it’s not displaying anything at all. I haven’t tested specifically, but are unmapped urls still given that old default icon?

I’m still seeing issues with my chrisaldrich.wordpress.com URL. Previously it displayed a blank space (presumably not able to understand the inpub), but the newer version is displaying the word “WordPress” even when I’m using icons only. (Example: https://boffosocko.com/2019/02/14/a-sketch-for-an-indieweb-bullet-journal/#Syndicated%20copies) My initial inclination is that the two instances of “WordPress” at https://github.com/dshanske/syndication-links/blob/057733d921b485cf8f0eb98b28b104ccb708bd21/includes/class-syn-meta.php#L333 are both CamelCase when all the other examples around/near that segment of code are all lower case.

Default avatars for refbacks

Filed an Issue Refbacks for WordPress by David ShanskeDavid Shanske (GitHub)
Contribute to dshanske/wordpress-refback development by creating an account on GitHub.

Refbacks in conjunction with the Webmention plugin and Semantic Linkbacks plugin don’t have as solid a parity with webmentions as they show up in the comments section as text instead of as an avatar. Perhaps it would be prettier if refbacks were given a default system avatar (possibly modifiable) for display?

Setting to discard self-refbacks

Filed an Issue Refbacks for WordPress. by David ShanskeDavid Shanske (GitHub)
Contribute to dshanske/wordpress-refback development by creating an account on GitHub.

Given the tremendous number of self-refbacks, it would be nice to have a setting that would allow the plugin to silently discard refbacks to one’s own website. Since adding the plugin I’d estimate that 99.9% of the refbacks I get are from people clicking links on my own website rather than external links others.

This should be separate from preventing self-webmentions as I (and I suspect others may) want to have those show up to cross link or cross reference posts on their own sites.

UI suggestion: Admin drop down filter for refbacks

Filed an Issue Refbacks for WordPress (GitHub)
Contribute to dshanske/wordpress-refback development by creating an account on GitHub.

Similar to the design set up for other comment types, it would be nice to have a filter for refbacks in the dropdown menu at /wp-admin/edit-comments.php. With the Webmentions plugin enabled, one is presented with the options to filter for “All Comment Types”, “Comments”, “Pings”, and “Webmentions”. Adding a filter for “Refbacks” would be incredibly helpful as well.

Simple Location’s Last Seen widget is revealing private locations

Filed an Issue Simple Location Plugin for WordPress (GitHub)
Adds Basic Location Support to Wordpress. Contribute to dshanske/simple-location development by creating an account on GitHub.

Using the version 3.5.2 of Simple Location, I’m most recently checked into a location that is marked as private, but the location widget indicates “Private” followed by the exact street address to the private location to which I’m checked in. Previously the widget showed the most recent public location, but now it’s explicitly uncovering private locations.

Perhaps it’s related to the recent fix that was causing private posts to be marked public?

Space separated tags not appropriate for WordPress multi-word tags

Filed an Issue Omnibear (GitHub)
A Micropub browser extension. Contribute to keithjgrant/omnibear development by creating an account on GitHub.

WordPress installs will frequently use multi-word tags/categories, thus there is no way to send those tags when Omnibear defaults to space separated tags. Comma, semi-colon, or other separators may be better in these situations.

Feature Request: OwnYourSwarm posts should trigger weather lookup

Filed an Issue dshanske/simple-location (GitHub)
simple-location - Adds Basic Location Support to Wordpress

Currently OwnYourSwarm will allow crossposts with GPS data that allows Simple Location to display. Though OYS doesn’t send the weather data, I presume it could be possible that upon receipt of the OYS data that Simple Location could still be triggered to do a weather lookup so that the checkin could display both the location as well as the weather data for that checkin.

Taking things a half step further, perhaps any micropub or other incoming post creation tool that includes location data could automatically trigger a weather lookup? Then OwnYourGram, DsgnWrks Instagram Importer, or other similar tools that create new posts with location data could provide weather as well.

Swarm checkins appear as notes

Filed an Issue dshanske/indieweb-post-kinds (GitHub)
indieweb-post-kinds - adds support for responding to and interacting with other sites using the standards developed by the Indieweb Community

Perhaps I’m missing a setting somewhere, but since I’ve gotten OwnYourSwarm working (using JSON as opposed to the “Simple” setting, the post data arrives as expected, however, Post Kinds is defaulting the post to be a note instead of a checkin as I would expect. (In general, I would think that all posts arriving from OYS would always default to be checkins despite the fact that they may have note-like content as well as photos.)

In the settings on my site, I’ve even got the “Default Kind for New Posts” set to checkin, as I use it often, yet the posts still show up as a note.

Ideas about what may be missing or going wrong?

As a small caveat, I’ll note that this install is running Post Kinds Version 3.0.6, but I suspect that nothing has changed since about June that might fix or affect this issue.

Replied to user-secret.svg replacing default avatar? · Issue #178 · pfefferle/wordpress-semantic-linkbacks (GitHub)
While I don't mind that this plugin offers its own avatar for unassigned gravatar photos, I wish it would present me the option to choose it on wp-admin/options-discussion.php under Default Avatar. With the latest update, all my default avatars are being overridden with user-secret.svg.

In version 3.8.1 it currently appears that comments from WordPress and Micro.blog (both of which have Gravatar as a commonality) appear to be automatically using the default mystery person avatar even though there is a separate avatar defined within the Avatar fields for Semantic Linkbacks Data.

If I add my my email address within the comment editing interface, then the appropriate Gravatar is pulled and displayed as expected. This leads me to believe that somehow SL either isn’t finding/pulling the Gravatar URL that it’s storing, or the code is potentially skipping looking for it within its logic structure.

I’ve noticed this also seems to be the case for other WP sites which I have reason to suspect are running this same version as well.

Webmentions from other non-Gravatar related sites don’t seem to be affected by this and they’re displaying the proper avatar images as defined within their h-cards.
