Pixellated Microformats SVG button to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Microformats being shown off at ETCON 2004 by Tantek and myself.
I spent yesterday working on a version of a blogger theme compatible with IndieWeb tools like webmentions. You can see an example here: https://drmacsspot.blogspot.com/ Then using IFTT I syndicate my notes to Twitter and the tweets get displayed back on my blog as comments. Here is an example: https...
Importing and editing custom templates on Micro.blog.
There are also simpler methods than RSS now including the microformats-based h-feed which one can use to create a simple feed that many feed readers will support.
Part of RSS’s ubiquity is that it is simply so prevalent that most common CMSs still support it. The fact that the idea of RSS is so old and generally un-evolving means there isn’t a lot of maintenance involved once it’s been set up.
Now that phase one of Gutenberg has dropped the interest in #ClassicPress grows by the day. So many WordPress developers fear the loss of control they will face under the new regime of 5.0. Many just don't want to do the work of all that refactoring. #IndieWeb and #ClassicPress should join forces. w...
2018 war ein durchwachsenes Jahr!
Mein privates „Ich“ hat letztes Jahr sehr viel Raum eingenommen und auch beruflich hat sich viel verändert.
Das heißt ich hatte generell wenig Zeit für mein online „Ich“ und wenn ich doch etwas Zeit hatte, war das Ergebnis meistens eher frustrierend.
I’ll have to revisit some of his work on OStatus and ActivityPub with respect to WordPress. It would be nice to be able to follow @email@example.com on Mastodon wouldn’t it?
Thanks, as always Pfefferle, for keeping the web open!
When will the government shutdown end? The bombshell Russia story from the New York Times: is Trump working for Russia?

"sameAs":"http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103396/". This feels reminiscent of the function of the microformats for u-syndication or rel-syndication which gives the folks at the network a trail to the copy of the data for the episode that they likely syndicated to imdb.com so that it’s findable there. Sadly, the URL link incorrectly points to a page for Dateline, so I’m not sure if their data is pointing to the right place, though it appears that the data for the episode on imdb.com is correct for this episode. It would also be nice if they were using the correct markup so that web parsers and crawlers would pick up the data properly.
The tougher part is that some of your post seems a bit misleading to me.
The couple of microformats related lines you’re adding in your child theme like
add_theme_support( ‘microformats2’ ); are in fact declaring that your theme properly supports microformats v1, v2, and microdata which it doesn’t quite. Those lines don’t actually add support (as the hook might indicate), but tell other WordPress plugins that your theme is microformats compatible which may prevent them from adding particular pieces of redundant microformats related code.
While you’ve got an
h-entry in your header file, you’re closing the related
</div> just after the title so that if the body of your post includes a
p-summary or an
e-content microformat, parsers are likely to have problems. Instead you might want to do something similar in either your
content.php (or other file that adds the body of your post) or your
footer.php files where you close that
div in one of those two files instead of in your
header.php file. If you need it the article page on the wiki has a simple example of what the final result should look like.
My favorite template for how to add microformats to a WordPress theme is David Shanske’s fork of the TwentySixteen theme. Because of GitHub’s interface and the fact that he made changes in relatively small increments, you can look at the history of his changes (start with the oldest ones and move forward) and see the highlights of what he added and removed in individual files to effect the necessary changes. (He made some other drastic changes like removing Post Formats in preference to Post Kinds as well as some other non-microformats changes, so you’ll necessarily want to skip those particular changes.) I think I learned more about WordPress Themes by going through this one example a change at a time than any of the books or tutorials I’ve ever seen.
If you need some help, feel free to catch one of the WordPress folks in the IndieWeb chat. I suspect that since you’ve got the fortitude to dive into the code the way you have, that you’ll be able to puzzle it out.
Listen to a summary of all the sessions at IndieWebCamp Berlin 2018!
Session notes: https://indieweb.org/2018/Berlin/Sessions
This is a repost of https://aaronparecki.com/2018/11/18/7/indiewebcamp-berlin.
The sessions on Microformats, Displaying Responses, Data Ethics, Making your website work offline, and Location sound like interesting things to take deeper looks into. I particularly like the idea of separating the legal and the ethical portions completely away from each other and doing the ethical portion first and then secondly filtering that through any legal loopholes. Ideally the legal filter won’t actually be filtering anything out if the ethical is done properly, and if it does, then perhaps the legal has some issues.

Hi, I’m Aram Zucker-Scharff and now that we’re settled in, I’ll take a minute to introduce myself. I’m the Director of Ad Tech Engineering at The Washington Post, where I work with teams across the organization to help the Post make money and, through our Arc platform, help other publications make money as well. But I’ve taken a long road to this point, I started off as a journalist, then an editor, a social media manager, a product manager, a freelance strategy consultant and developer and last a full stack developer. I even spent some time being very bad at selling ads.
I dug around a bit and didn’t see any video from this session.
In these times of centralised services like Facebook, Twitter, and Medium, having your own website is downright disruptive. If you care about the longevity of your online presence, independent publishing is the way to go. But how can you get all the benefits of those third-party services while still owning your own data? By using the building blocks of the Indie Web, that’s how!

I gave a talk on microformats Wednesday night at the San Diego PHP Meetup group. This was my first time giving a formal talk on the topic. I think it went pretty well and I got some good feedback. There was a lot of information and links covered (and some I forgot) so I decided to make a summary pos...
Since they don’t support webmention and don’t seem to have comments on their site open, I’ll say “Hello!” by syndicating to Twitter. I hope you haven’t given up on the idea of what the IndieWeb stands for and are still thinking of making your Log Lolla theme directly compatible with how the IndieWeb works with WordPress. There are a bunch of us out here who’d love to give you any help and support you need as we’d all love to see more IndieWeb friendly themes in the WordPress repo. Feel free to join us in the #IndieWeb chat or the #WordPress chat to say hello.
