๐Ÿ’ฌ John Johnston Indigenous Desktop Test

This is exciting Aaron, testing the reply feature on my desktop now.

HMM, I need to manually add the response properties in my blog. Not sure if that is due to your emoji in title orโ€ฆ

I know that emojis have been an issue in the past, however I manually remove it from the slug these days (see url https://collect.readwriterespond.com/indigenous-for-desktop/). The only emojis are in the title?

I think that you have touched upon my only concern/frustration with Micropub/sub Readers. They do not seem to populate Response Proporties box. Although it is far from ideal, I prefer to populate these and even add my own custom quote. I also lose control over the headings associated with responses, listens, likes etc … I agree to this as a standard, but there is a part of me that likes having a heading and an emoji to go with this. Each to there own I guess. My dream would be to be able to decide what fields are available, like a custom client that matches up with the various microformats.

    Hi Aaron,

    I find emoji anywhere in Response Properties makes them vanish on publish. Lots of folk use them in twitter names, and if Iโ€™ve been too lazy to look at the details, boom.

    Indigenous seemed to fill the response properties in an emojiless post, but I needed to update the post manually to get them to show on the front end of the blog.

    Iโ€™ve got Default Status for Micropub Posts set to draft, and posting from Indigenousโ€™s post section respected that, but replies didnโ€™t. I need to test a wee bit more.

    I guess I want cake and eat it, quick posting and the ability to edit quotes etc. Unfortunately I donโ€™t have the ability to dive in and do this for myself.

    1. My other frustration is that even if I save the posts to drafts and then clean them up, they still save as ‘links’ and then show differently on my site. I could fiddle with the CSS, but that is neither my strong point nor is it something I want to do. With this in mind, it kind of leaves me either using something like Indigenous the whole time or not at all. I definitely want my cake and to eat it to.
