πŸ’¬ IndieWebifying Edublogs

Replied to a post (jgregorymcverry.com)
@dogtrax been poking around for a bit and can’t figure out any way to add the #IndieWeb plumbing to @edublogs. You could (and should) manually put an h-card on your home page, but since @edublogs do not provide users with the freedom of adding plugins to WordPress you won’t be able to add any of the cool webmentions or have post marked up with h-entry to allow you to play.
I have been wondering about this for a while. My thoughts were whether you could bake the code into the HTML of the post. Obviously though without the appropriate piping associated with rel=me and Bridgy it isn’t going to work.

I wonder what would be involved in making it work? They have added plugins before, what would an IndieBlogs plugin look like? My concern is that this might mean for primary aged blogs?

I see real prospect for something like Micro.Blogs in schood, but again there is the issue around Rel=Me.

I imagine that until it is built into the core then it will be a hard ask.
