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.

Bug: My Profile link in footer directs to incorrect URL

Filed an Issue gRegorLove/indiebookclub (GitHub)
indiebookclub is a simple app for tracking books you are reading https://indiebookclub.biz

When logged in the “My Profile” button in the footer of my page directs to https://indiebookclub.biz/users/www.boffosocko.com which gives a “Page not found notice”.

If I go to https://indiebookclub.biz/users/boffosocko.com instead, then the page resolves and shows the profile page I would expect.

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.

Facepiles no longer working for RSVPs

Filed an Issue pfefferle/wordpress-semantic-linkbacks (GitHub)
More meaningfull linkbacks

They’d previously been working, but for some reason, with the setting set to facepile all the RSVP types in settings, none of the RSVPs are facepiling like they’re supposed to now.

Editing comments causes author avatar to disappear

Filed an Issue pfefferle/wordpress-semantic-linkbacks (GitHub)
wordpress-semantic-linkbacks - More meaningfull linkbacks

On the /wp-admin/comment.php admin page when manually editing a comment to change any of the common fields (author, email, the comment itself) and saving, everything saves as expected except for the avatar within the Semantic Linkbacks portion. If the avatar was changed (or one was added) things are saved properly, but when updating other fields and not changing the avatar itself, the avatar field data seems to be deleted on saving, thus making the author images disappear.

QuantaMagazine.org orphans all annotations

Filed an Issue hypothesis/h (GitHub)
Annotate with anyone, anywhere.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Annotate any particular individual article on https://www.quantamagazine.org/
  2. Links to the annotations are redirected back to the root domain and not the individual page

Expected behaviour

The links should direct to the canonical URL of the article

Actual behaviour

All the annotations to individual pages seem to automatically become orphans and are associated with the root domain instead of the individual permalinks.

Example: The annotations at https://hyp.is/lUpgtn15EeivjHMsJK03Tg/www.quantamagazine.org/ and https://hyp.is/6C98en11EeieFgMy1hP9tQ/www.quantamagazine.org/ on the page https://www.quantamagazine.org/mathematics-shows-how-to-ensure-evolution-20180626/ don’t resolve properly because of the orphaning issue on this website.

Browser/system information

This is happening to me on a variety of browsers on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 including: Chrome 67 and Firefox Quantum 60.0.2 (64-bit).
It also appears to be an issue on both the current versions of Chrome/Firefox on Android v8.0.0

Additional details

I’d guess that the issue is site specific to quantummagazine.org somehow.

Errors on update to 3.8.0

Filed an Issue dshanske/syndication-links (GitHub)
Add and Display Syndication Links

After updating to the most recent version 3.8.0 of Semantic Linkbacks I’m getting the following error in the Comments sections of both posts and pages:

Warning: in_array() expects parameter 2 to be array, string given in htdocs/blog/wp-content/plugins/semantic-linkbacks/includes/class-linkbacks-walker-comment.php on line 25

It seems to be throwing the error the same number of times that there are comments on the post. Additionally the comments section is showing both the raw mentions and facepiled versions. I’ll have to test some additional posts, but it also seems to have changed some mentions that were previously moderated out to now be showing.

Facepiles not displaying avatars

Filed an Issue pfefferle/wordpress-semantic-linkbacks (GitHub)
More meaningful linkbacks

Apparently the v3.7.7 update seems to break the display of avatar images in facepiles for likes, bookmarks, etc. Instead of showing the expected avatar image, it’s showing the author’s name wrapped with an href for the originating site.

It’s not just my site either as I notice that the facepiles at https://ramblinggit.com/2018/05/241/ (using Sempress) are also displaying the same way.

I’d simultaneously updated the Webmention plugin and tried uninstalling and reinstalling both plugins as well as checking a variety of settings (including the discussion setting for showing Avatars) and uninstalling a variety of potential conflicting plugins, but to no avail.

I know there were recent changes for privacy related pieces, perhaps this is the cause?

Read doesn’t have an option to facepile in discussion settings

Filed an Issue pfefferle/wordpress-semantic-linkbacks (GitHub)
More meaningful linkbacks

It looks like the new “read” functionality for mentions automatically facepiles them anyway, but I’ve noticed that the settings at /wp-admin/options-discussion.php#semantic_linkbacks doesn’t include a checkbox for reads.

This really isn’t an issue (at least for me), but you may want to be aware of it or tweak it for parity’s sake.

UI suggestions for watches

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

It would be nice if there were a way to distinguish between various watch types to differentiate between films, television, and internet based streaming media — perhaps with a data field and a toggle along with three appropriate icons for each of these rather than the single watch icon now (a generic “play” button).

Further, most of the current meta data fields are fairly solid for the most often used fields, but I often find that it would be nice to have fields for Season # and Episode # for television shows.

The last “big” piece that would be nice to have is a quickly usable ratings field of sorts so one could provide a rating 1-5, 1-10, or 1-100 rating field? Maybe it could be a simple numerical data field that calculates/displays a rough 5 star-based scale? h-review markup could also come into play here as well, though it would be nice to capture the raw data even if there is no UI display built for it.

Master View template

Filed an Issue IndieWeb Post Kinds (GitHub)
Adds support for responding to and interacting with other sites using the standards developed by the Indieweb Community

For ease-of-use as well as to help designers, theme builders, and maybe even Gen2 it might be useful to have a “master template” for views which includes all of the output of the data fields within Post Kinds in a single view.

If done in a relatively modular fashion with good commenting, perhaps even Gen2 folks could more easily delete or move pieces within such a master template to mash up various pieces to get what they’d like to display. Including alternate versions for displaying things could be useful as well (eg: raw display of things like start time and end time as well as a separate calculated duration time based on these two.)

Add Twitter mentions of #DoOO to one of IndieWeb chat channels

Filed an Issue Loqi (GitHub)
Loqi is a friendly IRC bot https://indieweb.org/Loqi

The #DoOO (Domain of One’s Own) hashtag on Twitter is essentially an equivalent of the #IndieWeb hashtag, but more often used by the education segment of the community. While used by educators and researchers, particularly in higher education, their content typically isn’t restricted to that sub-segment and thus are broadly applicable to our overall principles. Many using the hashtag are administrators, developers, and evangelists overseeing large installations to help Gen2+ people join the IndieWeb at scale.

Adding #DoOO tweets to one of the channels (#indieweb or #dev) could certainly make sense for the community and be a welcoming addition to those joining us from the education related communities, many of whom have attended past IWCs or are actively participating already.

Current hashtag frequency is roughly 1-3 tweets per day, though for related conferences, their velocity can go higher on a particular day. Higher velocity days likely only occur 1-3 days per year.

Feature Idea: UI code to create an original-of page and/or widget

Filed an Issue Syndication Links Plugin for WordPress (dshanske/syndication-links) (GitHub)
Add and Display Syndication Links https://wordpress.org/plugins/syndication-links/

I noticed that Kartik has an an original-of page at https://kartikprabhu.com/original-of which may have inspired the original-of URL functionality for use in Syndication Links.

For improved UI, is there a code snippet that could be created (or which already exists?) that could be added to a custom page to allow the creation for a simple search for such things the way Kartik has done? I’m thinking of something along the lines of <?php get_search_form(); ?> which can be added to 404 page templates to allow the addition of a search box on such a page to get the user moving in the right direction.

This type of original-of search functionality could also be added to a simple widget as well so that one doesn’t need an entire page for it. Suggested verbiage: “Have a social media permalink for a piece of content? Use it here to search for the original version on this site.”
