👓 IndieAuth for WordPress Question | David Shanske

Read IndieAuth for WordPress Question by David ShanskeDavid Shanske (david.shanske.com)
Thinking about the necessity of maintaining IndieAuth code in the Micropub plugin and now the Yarns Microsub plugin for WordPress. I wanted to put out to any WordPress user for some input. The IndieAuth plugin creates an IndieAuth endpoint inside your WordPress installation. This means that you logi...
Replied to Add nag notice and new script for checking headers by dshanske · Pull Request #136 · indieweb/wordpress-indieauth by David ShanskeDavid Shanske (GitHub)
This adds in a script that will nag you to run it until you do. Hopefully this will help educate people on the dangers of not passing Auth headers.

Manually testing this on my site generally seems okay, but I think it contains a logic error because it is returning what must be a false positive.

I see the message in the admin UI and can click on the test which returns the message “Alternate Header Found. You are good to go.” However, when attempting to actually log into Monocle, I get the same 403 error saying that it couldn’t find the bearer token, and it won’t let me log in. So obviously I’m not “good to go.”

From a UI perspective something like “Your headers are properly configured and accessible.” may be better than the “You are good to go” which may be a more difficult construction for non-English speakers. Additionally wrapping that message in an anchor that will redirect to their admin UI might be nice.

Shownotes

October 1st will be the 43 anniversary of the Ali/Frazer fight, so this week’s title is apropos after David spent a month in Manila working on many IndieWeb related projects including the Micropub plugin, client discovery in IndieAuth, Post Kinds, etc.

In this week’s episode, we discuss new developments in WordPress and what David has wanted to accomplish for all these years in the IndieWeb community: the ability to read something on his phone, store it on his website to either share or just save, as appropriate.
