At yesterday’s HWC London, I thought I’d have a start at getting things set up such that I can publish to my website from within spacemacs (AKA Emacs with lots of customisations). Why post from spacemacs? I use spacemacs a lot – for all of my coding, and for all of my personal organisation wit...

The 3.3 branch of IndieAuth for WordPress is now available. PKCE Support is now present in Indieauth for WordPress. PKCE protects against intercepted authorization codes by ensuring a token endpoint can confirm that the client attempting to redeem an authorization code is the same client that reques...
WordPress is the most popular blog software which can provide us opportunities to create beautiful and powerful websites. Mediawiki is also a very famous wiki software which can be applied to build our own knowledge pool like Wikipedia. Although some people may use WordPress to set up a small wiki system using plugins while others may use Mediawiki to blog their personal experiences, it cannot be more professional to use each of them to do things they are good at. Then the question comes as, is it possible to integrate them at the same time to make your website more functional? The answer is absolutely YES! Just take hawkinqian.com as an example. I use WordPress and Mediawiki to serve as my personal blog system and wiki system respectively, and they both function pretty well and also integrates pretty well visually. That’s what I would like to talk about, the way to highly integrate WordPress and Mediawiki.
On the other end of the spectrum, I would be happy if I could install a wiki and share the login credentials between WordPress and the wiki. I hacked MediaWiki a while ago to share logins with anot...
WPMW is an extension for integrating a MediaWiki within a WordPress installation. It is currently working and useful, but beta-quality. (Not working since MW 1.27)
MediaWiki should not need any introduction to those of you who have been making Wikis online for a while now. There is no doubt that MediaWiki is a quite capable content management system for Wiki sites. It is not that hard to learn your way around it either. But integrating it with your WordPress site …
Micropub and WordPress: Custom Posting Applications
The W3C recommended Micropub specification (2017) allows developers to create custom posting applications for a wide variety of data targeting any content management system that supports the spec.
I will provide an overview of the setup and use of the available plugin and endpoint for WordPress. I’ll also provide a beginner walk-though for a variety of client applications like Quill, Teacup, OwnYourGram, OwnYourSwarm, Omnibear, and others that allow one to easily post status updates, bookmarks, likes, check-ins/location data, photos, and more directly to their WordPress sites.
We’ll also talk about how developers can create custom posting interfaces to drastically simplify content creation and posting for clients in ways that can be even simpler and more flexible than working with Gutenberg.
My talk on “Micropub and WordPress: Custom Posting Applications” will take place on from –
College of the Canyons
Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center

Welcome back everyone! We took off February and now we're back at it!
WordPress Pasadena is back in beautiful Old Town Pasadena at one of the first (and finest) Co-Workin' spaces in town, CrossCampus (http://www.crosscamp.us/).
My Fall/Winter math class will be over, so I can go back to attending the Pasadena WordPress Meetup!
Removed some old (and hopefully unused) plugins from my website yesterday. I probably need to do a full audit soon. With any luck it’ll speed the website up a bit–something I should specifically look at in the near future.
Some ideas I threw together for an updated Getting Started screen. Introduces the user to the IndieWeb concept, presents prominent next steps for ‘Indiewebifying’ their site and learning more. Eliminates the need for the Extensions page.
I like the idea that this simplifies things and potentially gets rid of an additional tab/page.
ad-hoc sessions is the idea (which needs a better name) that we host single topic sessions every month or two online that the community can gather around and discuss.
I do like the idea of doing something like this.
It also may be worthwhile to do some regular WordPress set up sessions on a monthly basis the way we often do at camps.
If you have questions about it after the camp, feel free to ask in the IndieWeb chat. There are lots of us who can help.
